From architecture to interiors to landscape, from projects large to small, and everything in between… It‘s a lot of information to take in! But, we are big proponents of maintaining an avid sense of curiosity. It leads to better design, and that‘s what we‘re all about! So, whether you‘re looking to expand your own horizons, or whether you‘re hoping to learn a little more about how we think and operate at Board & Vellum, consider this your resource archive, pre-sorted into all the subject areas we get excited about, so you can take it in, bit by bit.
Advice for Young Architects
The profession of architecture is built on mentorship. Everyone has different advice, and those varying perspectives build a rich set of resources.
Arts & Culture
The best design evolves from the collaboration of designers with the greater world. We love being a part of — and contributing to — the larger arts & culture community.
Ask an Architect
Architecture and design should be approachable! We are here to answer your questions, clarify those tricky issues, and generally shine a bright light on the design process.
We take sustainability seriously and support a science-based approach. Building green is more than a checklist, it’s a philosophy and a commitment to meaningful results.
We love designing projects that engage communities, like parks and other public spaces. From blog posts, to projects, and more, see how we’re engaged in the civic realm.
We love designing commercial spaces, and there is a lot that goes into it! From blog posts, to projects, and recognition, explore Board & Vellum’s commercial repertoire here.
We offer custom residential architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture services for new construction and remodels, in a variety of styles.
Board & Vellum loves a good party. But we also love volunteer opportunities, great lectures, and other community events — and think you might love them, too.
We nurture our firm culture very carefully, and we’ve been recognized as a great place to work as a result. We‘re changing the game of what it means to be a design firm.
Historic & Traditional
Whether you are restoring an old relic, or want new construction in traditional style, we’ve got the team for you, including specialists in historic preservation and restoration.
The final finishing touches interior design brings to a project so often are what makes a space feel so special, so experiential, and so true to the vision.
Landscape architecture elevates the design of any project. Our landscape team works both independently and embedded within our architecture and interior design studios.
Multifamily & Mixed-Use
Our integrated architecture, interior design, and landscape studios help take your multifamily or mixed-use project to the next level to support a healthy community.

Seattle Design Community
What’s happening in Seattle’s design community? When we get to experience something new (or old) and write about it, you’ll find it collected here.
The Business of Design
We’ve learned a lot about running a design firm over the years, so we’re lifting the curtain on our methods, philosophy, and plans for the future.
Would you like to learn more?
We’re thrilled that you’re interested!
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.
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.
