We are designers, we are builders, and our work is informed by our experience as both. We seek out simple, modern solutions that implement vernacular forms and materials indigenous to the Pacific Northwest. Clean lines, expression of structure and material, and sustainable building practices are at the core of every project.
Our clients play in active role in the design | build process. We’ll get to know you, your family or your company, how you live and work, and what is important to you. We’ll listen to your ideas and collaborate with you, ensuring that the parameters that drive your project are a reflection of your priorities. We’ll propose solutions that expand your thinking, and we’ll problem-solve until we’re satisfied that the path forward is clear, essential and beautiful.
