How do you live or work?
What is the most important thing about your site to YOU?
How do you want your project to function?
These are the primary questions that drive each project. We want to hear the details of how the kitchen should work or where the dog is going to sleep, or which tree needs to stay. Paying attention to these questions and valuing the answers we’re given, we work hand in hand with clients to create spaces that are unique to their needs and lifestyle. Part of our job is being a steward of your time and money and we take that responsibility seriously. Successful projects require open collaboration and trust.
Our projects lean toward the contemporary and feature clean lines and thoughtful detailing. It is also our strong belief that the design should endure by means of durable materials, but also by transcending current style or trends.

Born and raised in Seattle, Ashley received both her Bachelor’s and Master of Architecture from the University of Washington. She began her career working on small commercial and retail projects, then moved on to large mid- and high-rise multifamily projects for nearly a decade. Now Ashley is focusing on residential architecture, and enjoying the opportunities for customizing built environments for their end users. Ashley is passionate about creating spaces that are both personal and timeless. Each site, each client, each program, bring unique opportunities to create something special, and translating all those factors into custom architecture is what Ashley excels at. Ashley and her husband are raising two young children in the Ballard neighborhood. Outside of work, they enjoy time with friends and exploring the Pacific Northwest by bike, foot, and ferry.
