About Us

Seattle-Based, Collaborative Architecture Firm
Place Making The theme of our work in the Pacific Northwest is based on the dialogue between a building and its setting. We are fortunate to have been involved with building projects in dramatic natural settings. The way in which one utilizes and controls the elusive natural light, water and mountain views, topography and other rich qualities that make this region special, is often the key to unlocking the spirit of a place and creating a great design. Experiencing the change in seasons and the dramatic weather of this region from a sheltering place or open place according to its exposure is a vital source of pleasure in architecture. Ours is a region where the temperature of a deck or terrace on a site can vary ten degrees or more depending upon its placement. Each site possesses potential opportunities to be unlocked through careful planning. It is of critical importance today that architecture reflect the special features of its locale with clarity and wit. We create highly personalized houses that take cues from the dreams and unique qualities of their owners. We listen very well. Often, the most inspirational components of a residential design come directly from an idea put forward in a collaboration with clients. We are drawn to the challenge of creating great small buildings, even with tight budgets, as well as on large-scale projects. We have been fortunate to have the opportunity to work collaboratively with some of the finest craftsmen in the area. On almost all of our new projects, we are incorporating a whole new generation of building products and techniques that use recycled and sustainable systems. It can take on many dimensions in design and construction. Everything is involved, from placing the building on the site, selection of materials and systems, how they are installed, and how the building performs over time. The best buildings respond both poetically and practically to the spirit of their regional place, both natural and man-made. That is where the magic lies. The buildings we call classic are those that stand the test of time, physically and aesthetically. These must be designed to express the qualities that make them a special place, to create lasting value.
