Business Description
jARCHITECTS is a single proprietorship design office located in the Ravenna neighborhood of Seattle, WA.

I am most inspired by residential architecture and small, neighborhood commercial projects. My past projects range from small residential remodels to multi-family housing. I find my favorite projects are those where the client stayed informed and involved through out the design process. Also, it is essential that a strong relationship between owner, architect and contractor is established early on. Everyone, this way, is vested towards a common, collaborative goal.

I believe a project should be developed with a strong respect for the client's aesthetic, budgetary, and scheduling needs. The project should strive to be sustainable and energy conscious. I believe projects should be well designed and detailed and adaptable to the client's present and future needs.

Services that jARCHITECTS offers are: Architectural Design and Planning, Tenant Improvement, Feasibility Studies for Residential and Commercial projects, Permit and Code Assistance.
