Patrick McCoy – Meet a B&V'er – Board & Vellum Team

Patrick McCoy

Associate, Architecture

Now with nearly a decade of experience, Patrick knew from a very young age that designing would be a fundamental part of his world. Custom residential architecture is his passion. Having graduated from the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, he appreciates the Bauhaus philosophy's architectural significance and strives to implement that into his everyday work.

Patrick finds himself most inspired during his morning runs through downtown Seattle or Chicago’s streets, witnessing the rapid expansion of life and architecture. Patrick believes a stagnant environment lacks creative thought and innovation, so an ever-changing environment is crucial to life and architecture.
