Jill Burdeen – Meet a B&V'er – Board & Vellum

Jill Burdeen

Director, Multifamily Studio

Jill brings over 15 years of design experience in the multifamily and mixed-use world to Board & Vellum. Her project portfolio ranges from townhouse projects on a podium to large-scale, mid-rise apartment buildings. She has a passion for dense, urban infill developments and that has led to her intimate familiarity with the Seattle market. She is proficient in all aspects of residential architecture, from feasibility through construction, with thorough knowledge of city processes and code intricacies.

Jill loves collaborative design that echoes the client’s vision and energizes the neighborhood. She uses efficiency as motivation to creatively fill a site while also producing truly usable spaces. She is enthusiastic about color and patterns and tries to find unique and tasteful ways to incorporate them into project design.

Jill earned a Bachelor of Arts degree, with a focus in Business and Telecommunications, from Indiana University, and a Master’s Degree in Architecture from the Illinois Institute of Technology. When she is not at the office you can find her racing around town with her two daughters chasing rainbows and unicorns. She also likes to dabble in party planning and has hopes of someday opening a candy store. She has also spent time volunteering with groups like Architects Without Borders, Food Lifeline, Noel House and Marra Farms.
