Best Residential Architects in Sammamish, Tacoma & Woodinville

On Home Builder Digest’s lists of recommended architects for single-family residential projects.

Designing single-family homes is where it all started for Board & Vellum, and though we are based in Seattle, we are fortunate to work on residential projects across the region. No matter where a project is, we take care to consider not only the wants and needs of the client, but the context of their project in their immediate neighborhood and the greater community.

We are happy to be recognized by Home Builder Digest on three local lists of Best Residential Architects in the Greater Seattle area.

Compiling their list of The 15 Best Residential Architects in Sammamish, Washington, Home Builder Digest explains they “prioritized those firms that design with the rich character of the city in the mind.” Diversity of the firm, recognition, principals’ history, building strategies, versatility, and sustainability also played a role in a firm meriting the list.

Home Builder Digest cites Board & Vellum’s “integrated approach and constant collaboration” that “results in a thoughtful, considerate, and efficient design, delivering feasible and beautiful spaces that are durable and well-constructed” in their feature section on our firm.

For The Best Residential Architects in Tacoma, Washington, criteria included awards received, a commitment to excellent craftsmanship, and — for some, like us — an offering of a comprehensive range of services and “processes perfect for challenging projects.” They cite our hands-on, engaging, and personalized approach to design and working with clients, and how were are able to “keep homeowners continuously in the loop.” They pin us perfectly mentioning how we work across a range of styles, from modern to traditional — if anything, our signature style is an attention to detail customized to a particular space and project.

Home Builders Digest lists us first on their list for The 10 Best Residential Architects in Woodinville, Washington. Criteria for Woodinville’s list includes press features, awards, and that firms have built durable relationships with collaborators. They cite our collaborative culture and our sustainable approaches as additional benefits of working with our team.

We appreciate all the support, and are excited to continue to design new custom homes and residential remodels and additions — large and small — in Sammamish, Tacoma, and Woodinville. With not only architects, but interior designers and landscape architects in-house, we can build the dynamic team that’s just right for your residential project.
