Shed Architecture & Design

Seattle , WA United States

Shed engages architecture as a practical art. We practice pragmatically but with idealism. A directness of purpose and an economy of means results in unexpected and forward thinking design solutions. In this pursuit we value ingenuity derived from investigation rather than originality, open-minded exploration of core ideas and objectives rather than the imposition of a style, and responsiveness to economical and sustainable design principles and building practices. We are concerned with architecture that makes sense. The knowledge and experience gained during our early years as a design-build firm are the foundation of our practice, and we believe is what distinguishes our design services from other firms. We know how buildings are made, and we apply our hands-on knowledge to every individual design. We take on a wide range of projects as we are always looking for new design challenges and opportunities. Our work draws on a wide and ever-growing body of influences, and is therefore always developing. The common denominator in our work is not any particular style, but rather quality of light and space, thoughtful material choices, and attention to important details. We continue to enjoy the challenge of remodeling and rehabilitating structures of all types, sizes, and vintages. We appreciate the lessons that can accompany work on older buildings, and often our design work for new buildings incorporates these lessons.
