Seattle-based architecture and design practice Olson Kundig was founded in 1966 by Jim Olson. Believing that architecture connects nature, people, and local culture, the studio designs residential, commercial, and public buildings that are inspiring and encourage individuals to connect to nature. The blend of art, architecture, and traditional craftsmanship has a crucial role in the studio’s projects. A focus on artisan skill also allows the practice to embed an authentic story of the local setting and history in buildings and interiors. Olson Kundig’s worldwide projects range from compact mountain cabins to high-rise buildings, in areas as diverse as the rural landscapes of Idaho and the bustling streets of Mumbai. Often, the studio designs homes for art collectors, with a vast portfolio that includes museums, academic buildings, urban design, and more.
