As a founding principal of Blumentals/Architecture, Janis continues to contribute his wisdom and guidance to the firm. Janis now works only 40 hours a week and limits his practice to consulting, client contacts, organizing AIA continuing education seminars, proposal writing and occasional smaller projects.

Janis is the old fellow, who back in 1976, together with partner in life and profession, Susan Blumentals FAIA, founded Blumentals/Architecture, Inc. on the Earle Brown Farm in Brooklyn Center. The firm still has a couple of the original clients from the 70’s.

Janis graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor of Arts in 1956, and with a Bachelor of Architecture in 1959. Janis has practiced in the Twin Cities and in Las Vegas, and has worked on over 1,000 projects in 20 states, over 300 unit multi-residential projects, and over 400 renovations.
