Business Description
Ripple Design Studio is a Seattle-based boutique architecture firm that specializes in custom homes of timeless beauty and functionality. We design our homes to span generations—infusing them with environmentally sound principles and crafting them with sophisticated materials, artistic proportions and refined details that develop a rich patina with time. As a result, our homes need little maintenance and even less renovation over time, making them deeply green.

As LEED-accredited professionals and BuiltGreen members, we promote a thoughtful approach to sustainable design that marries the best of tradition and technology. Traditional home designs originated as passive responses to their environment—heating, cooling, lighting and venting themselves simply and naturally. We understand and apply these principles to efficient floor plans, incorporating modern technologies and building science to create spectacular homes with a social conscience.

Above all, our work is founded on our transparent process and clear, honest dialog. We establish realistic goals and expectations, and we aim to consistently exceed all of them. The results are delighted clients and environmentally responsible homes that become even more beautiful over time.
