Award-winning Pacific Northwest architect and fine artist, Scott Allen, is known for crafting warm, inviting spaces and thoughtfully elegant designs that take the “chill" out of contemporary architecture.
At Scott Allen Architecture, we put our clients at the center of the design process - just where they should be. Our deeply collaborative design process starts with listening to our client's needs and ideas for how they want to live. We then develop an understanding of the building site -- how the light moves, where the prevailing breezes come from, the topography, vegetation, etc. With these insights, we work closely with clients, and other design professionals including structural engineers and lighting designers, through every step of the design process -- from concept to final drawings and construction -- to ensure that our client's goals are translated into actual built form. The results are house designs and civic architecture noted for their elegance, enduring design and warmly personalized spaces.
Sustainable design is a big deal these days. We’ve always thought it so. We believe real sustainability starts with thoughtful design, because well-designed architecture is lasting and timeless. Our designs combine the use of quality, natural materials and the newest technologies to realize sustainability goals. The results are structures that delight, inspire, and beguile as well as provide safe shelter, protection, lasting value, and comfort. Contact us at 206-780-1122 to talk with us about our approach to sustainable design.
We offer clients a broad range of experience, honed by more than two decades working with private clients, public institutions, and other entities in the U.S. and Asia.
