About Us

The Just Joh team comes to the table with over four decades of experience in commercial, residential and Green design. Based on the principle that design should be simple, accessible, and personal, we approach every project with a fresh slate of ideas that compliment the specific desires and needs of each client


Lory Johansson has been a luminary in the field of architectural and interior design for over two decades. Lory’s international experience and expertise accents every project with a tasteful universality and cosmopolitan elegance. 

She is easily able to realize her clients' wild and diverse dreams with the elegance and style befitting her company's reputation.

Experienced in both commercial and residential design, Lory never fails to create living spaces that maximize creativity, comfort, and a true sense of place. 

Prior to joining the Just Joh team, Lory was co-President of the international design group Ergo Design Works. She earned her degree in mathematics from the University of California, Los Angeles.

Mats Johansson has worked in commercial and high-end residential architecture for past two decades and brings with him an extensive history in project management and ground-up construction. Johansson's incredible attention to detail gives each project a polished perfection; coordinating the architecture style with interior design allows him to successfully achieve the client's vision.

Johansson served as an architectural team leader on the ground-up construction of several multi-unit residential hotel projects in California and Arizona.
