Tri Ly – Associate and Architect at Board & Vellum

Tri Ly, RA

Associate, Architect

Tri loves residential architecture of all scopes and scales. He approaches all projects – large or small, single-family or multifamily, modestly-budgeted or extravagant – with thoughtful consideration, a sustainable approach, and creative solutions.

Tri believes in the integrity of each space and structure he designs, and is conscientious of the impact of materials. For Tri, making a space means designing holistically to respect the site, project program, and overall concept.

Tri earned a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Houston Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture. He is a registered architect in both Washington State and Idaho.

While he can’t tolerate mac n’ cheese, Tri is a great cook! He’s also a self-proclaimed awkward dancer and plans his travel itineraries down to 15-minute increments. Outside of work, you can find him on road trips with his family, reading biographies, exploring modern physics and Buddhist philosophy, training for his next 5k, and playing with his outdoor recreational soccer team, rain or shine.
