A native of Asheville, NC, Jordan Johnson graduated from TC Roberson High School with an aptitude for both art and math. It was the combination of these two disciplines that drew Jordan to architectural design. She was looking for a field of study that would allow her to combine the analytical and logical thinking of math with the beauty of art–both in the created and natural object. Jordan attended Clemson University, where she obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture in 2020.
Jordan’s interest in residential architecture was inspired by watching her father flip houses as a hobby and was further influenced by her mother’s real estate career. Whether doodling sketches or laying out a floor plan or considering the influence of materials, Jordan always enjoyed thinking about spaces where people chose to live. She was naturally drawn to ACM Design with their gorgeous mountain home creations illustrating clear attention to detail and their motto for home design of “garden to hearth.”
She minored in Spanish at Clemson and loves learning new languages. In her free time, she enjoys practicing these languages, reading, and creating art.
“Having grown up in Asheville, it’s a dream come true to live and work in my hometown and to share with the ACM Design clients everything that’s wonderful about this mountain community and the region of Western North Carolina.”
