Apartments, condos, townhomes, hospitality space, mixed-use…
What type of housing would you like to design, develop, or remodel?
In a dense and varied urban environment such as Seattle, homes come in all shapes and sizes. Just like single-family homes, multifamily projects are an essential piece of the urban fabric.
But this isn’t always easy to do well: successful multifamily projects must balance the needs of the building as a whole with the needs of the collection of individual homes within, all while being an asset to the community. Of course, that challenge excites us!
We give our multifamily residential projects the same care that we give our custom residential clients. And, we take pride in designing for neighborhoods, helping them become (or continue to be) sustainable and friendly to the greater city.
What sizes of multifamily projects do you work on?
We love to work with clients who are committed to being good neighbors. More than the size of a project, working with a team committed to building a long-lasting and special building is key. From urban rowhouses to larger apartment projects, we are committed to making every neighborhood we work in better.
What is your approach to the design process?
With multifamily projects, making the numbers work is essential. Our team is skilled in analyzing square footages and proforma while achieving a unique aesthetic that is warm, friendly, and fits into the neighborhood. We constantly balance the numbers with the “look” to distinguish the property in the market.
How do your projects benefit their neighborhoods?
Larger multifamily projects are giant additions to any neighborhood. We reach out to neighbors and, where applicable, provide a dynamic and desirable ground floor retail experience. Our integrated team of landscape architects, interior designers, and architects ensures that our ground floor and street experiences are wonderful additions to the existing urban fabric.
Here are some highlights from our multifamily portfolio.

Virtual Reality for Architecture: Experience Your Space Before You Build It
With virtual reality, we can spin up a model of your project so you can experience it as close to real as it gets, rather than trying to understand it from 2D plans.
