We’re designing Seattle’s first office building to housing conversion since the pandemic. Read more…

Design services should be approachable and accessible.

Integrated services or à la carte, we thrive as a collaborative team.

Board & Vellum is built on the idea that every project is unique — each requires a dedicated team customized to suit its particular needs. We offer architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture services in-house, enabling us to compose a team and a suite of services specifically suited to your project.

Our process is collaborative, informative, and adaptable. While integrated design services might be exactly what you’ve been looking for, what if they aren’t? Not a problem — all our studios also work independently, including collaborating with other design firms.

Custom Residential, Multifamily, Commercial, Civic


Much of our lives are influenced by the built environment, so its design should be thoughtful, functional, beautiful, and enduring. Whether designing a new or remodeled home, building, or commercial space, we approach it conscientiously. We are committed to great design, sustainable practices, and creating healthy buildings composed of spaces that are a joy to experience.

Interior Design

Interior spaces are often the ones we get physically closest to, interacting with the layout of a space, actually touching the materials. Great interior design makes the places we live, work, and play not only functional, but delightful. We are a passionate team of designers, eager to collaborate with you to create beautiful, meaningful, finished spaces for your home, business, or multifamily project.

Landscape Architecture

Beautiful outdoor rooms expand our experience and build community. Spending time outside is essential to our health and happiness. From our own backyards to everyone’s public parks, we love designing verdant, sustainable spaces people simply love to be. Knowledgeable and passionate, our landscape team has experience on projects public and private, large and small, commercial, residential, and civic.

Sustainable Practice

Sustainability is much more than certifications and solar panels. It is about improving the world we live in both environmentally and socially. It’s about reconnecting us with nature and providing opportunities for delight and discovery. Our integrated approach ensures we are thinking about sustainability from all angles to design the best, healthiest, spaces possible.

What type of project would you like to design?

We compose dynamic teams specializing in a variety of sectors.

So, you need an architect, interior designer, or landscape architect. (Or all three!) But, for what type of project? All three of our studios — architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture — are composed of talented designers specializing in their fields. But that’s just the first half of the equation.

From single-family homes to multifamily buildings, from commercial environments to civic spaces, we have teams of designers who’ve honed the particular skill sets needed for these vastly different project types. We’ll build you a team with the right balance of experience to deliver a beautiful, well-designed project.

Custom Residential

We offer custom residential architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture services for new construction and remodels, in a variety of styles, for projects large and small.

Multifamily Residential

We focus on distinctive projects we can weave into the greater neighborhood around them, designed to please not only the developer, but the residents and community.


We approach commercial design from an integrated services standpoint, composing multidisciplinary teams balanced for the particular needs of your project to create a beautiful and functional space.


We create meaningful, sustainable, public spaces supporting neighborhoods, by focusing on building community through engagement and human connection.

Our Story

Board & Vellum is a young and vibrant firm built on the idea that an informed and engaged team leads to better design and happy clients. We wouldn’t be where we are today without passion and hard work, and those same two things keep us going strong today.

Our Process

Bringing your project from “idea” to fruition is a little different at Board & Vellum. We give personal care to each of our projects, and you’ll be in the loop every step the way. The bonus: we are an integrated firm, so each project has access to plenty of great knowledge — and that leads to better design.

Considering a project? Or, just curious about something?

Send us your questions about design, architecture, interiors, landscape, LEGO rooms… Anything, really. We’re always eager to meet new people, and we’d love to get to know you, your project, and your goals.
