The making of architecture is the collaboration of a group - owner, architect, design consultants, and builder. A meaningful space need not be complicated, but it is invariably the simple execution of a well considered design. Grouparchitect focuses on creating these concise, specific solutions by taking a comprehensive approach to the project by considering sustainability as well as aesthetics and pragmatism, and by listening intently to our clients and working with their ideas to achieve their dreams. We work as a cohesive project team to make each project, great and small, a beautifully designed and well functioning space. Our approach to balancing the requirements of every project is supported by an ongoing process of dialogue, one that unfolds over time throughout the duration of the project.

Our experience ranges from vacation cabins to urban residences and remodels and additions to new construction throughout the Pacific Northwest. Grouparchitect focuses on agility and economy of action to achieve results larger than thought possible by our clients. We tailor our range of services to our client’s and the project’s needs, providing the support required to complete the project as designed.

Commented: love the table. Where is it from? Thanks for your interest. The homeowner's already had this table and brought it with them when they moved in the house so I'm not sure where they originally purchased it.

Commented: shipping containers? Hi, Thank you for the inquiry. No, this is a remodel (a second story addition) with conventional light frame wood construction. We did use corrugated metal siding which has some similarities to shipping...
