Who We Are

Founded in 1982, REDAP has a track record of providing exceptional Architectural and Interior Design services to all our clients. Specializing in the Life Sciences, Academic, and Corporate Interiors, our focus is to be a partner in our clients’ success through the disciplined and creative application of our vast experience to create projects of lasting value. Located in Boston’s Historic North End, we are within easy reach of the City’s major Innovation Centers, University Campuses and Business Districts, allowing us fast access to a great number of our projects. We are a regional firm with the majority of our clients in the New England area.

Corporate Philosophy

We believe every client should be treated like an only client and receive unparalleled, dedicated service. Every project is overseen by one or more senior Partners, who are directly involved with every aspect of the work. We recognize that each client and project are unique and different as we tailor our project plan and services to meet each individual’s specific goals. Personal attention from a Partner is the cornerstone of how we work, and we deliver on that expectation each and every time.


Through the span of several decades, our firm’s work has evolved and specialized to serve the continuing changing needs of our clients. Starting with our work with the Harvard Medical School nearly thirty years ago, we’ve been at the forefront of design for the Life Sciences industry and seen its evolution from Academia into the economic powerhouse it is today. Our expertise with Higher Education and Corporate Interiors work has positioned us to be uniquely tuned to the needs and requirements of Life Sciences companies. In addition, our substantial body of work in Master Planning, Architecture, Interiors, and Adaptive Re-use allows us to lead in upgrading and repositioning existing buildings for our Developers and Building Owners clientele, to better serve our region’s competitive commercial real estate market.

Our Team

At REDAP, we pride ourselves with our staff retention. Our three current partners have been with the firm for twenty-seven, fifteen, and twelve years, respectively. Robert (Bob) D. Johnston, Daniel (Danny) Figueredo, and Matthew (Matt) O’Brien collectively bring over ninety years of experience to our firm, which they routinely apply with direct, hands-on involvement. Our firm size has always remained consistent between fifteen and twenty persons, allowing us to be large enough to tackle sizeable, complex projects, yet nimble enough to break into smaller teams for quick assignments. Our boutique service approach means all individuals in a team are well acquainted with the specifics of the project, facilitating direct communication with your team, as needed. Our staff of Architects, Project Managers, Project Captains, and 3D Modelers, individually and corporately support our goal – offering services of the highest quality and excellence.
