Ectypos is a top architect in Seattle, we design contemporary residential—and adaptable live/work—spaces that enhance the lives of our clients. To reach that goal, we depend on collaboration.
Our first step is to listen carefully to a client’s objectives. This is the case be it new custom home design or a significant home remodel. Our design perspective translates to smaller houses that live large—and large houses that never overwhelm.
At Ectypos Architecture, we a have a strong commitment to doing more with less. In all cases, an energy efficient envelope is a core goal. So is maximizing the use of natural light and ventilation. We look to minimize impact to a site’s existing native landscape whenever possible. We’re also skilled at making challenging building sites work to our client’s advantage. We select and utilize the most appropriate construction techniques and technologies for the program, site, and budget.
Founded in 2001, Ectypos listens to its national and international clients’ creative dreams as closely today as it did the day the studio opened.
