Roy Stark McGarrah
Senior Associate, Architecture
Roy approaches design through craft and community. He encourages people to connect through active and involved engagement with the built environment and enjoys projects which involve community collaboration.
With a wide range of project experience, Roy finds satisfaction in a variety of scopes, scales, and sectors. From private residences to cabins, to wilderness quest base camps, community centers, and animal sanctuaries, Roy’s focus is bringing together diverse stakeholders for a common cause. His community-driven efforts have even included Little Free Libraries and PARK(ing) Day installations.
Roy was first inspired to bring a sustainable focus to the construction industry as a teenager working summers building homes. He translated this passion into a degree in Sustainable Design from The Evergreen State College. He attended graduate school at UT Austin and, later, the University of Washington, culminating in a master’s degree in architecture.
When he isn’t working, Roy focuses on spending time with his family and friends. You’ll also find him urban homesteading, studying hobby carpentry, making art, dancing, and traveling.
