Who we are...
We are a dynamic and growing firm, providing specification writing, product and materials research, and document review to architecture and interior design firms who desire a high level of collaborative interaction. Our design-centric mission is to provide architectural specifications and other project services of the highest quality. This involves regular and collaborative design team engagement within our clients’ offices. This enlivens our collaborative connections, strengthens and enriches our client relationships, and adds variety to our work experience.
"I believe design is more than the creation of an idea; it is the realization of that idea through clear and concise communication, and ultimately measured by the beauty and functionality of the final building for the users."
Detailing the interconnections between surfaces, components and materials is the essence of good design thinking: (top banner) Montevideo, (above from top) Miami, Seattle, Cabo Polonio, Buenos Aires

We are involved in a much wider range of project types than most architecture firms, including multi-family housing and hospitality, primary, secondary and higher education, health care, laboratory and tech infrastructure, airport and train transportation, and civic and government projects. Very few architecture or interior design firms are so broadly involved and working on so many projects.
Our office is directly engaged in exploring, evaluating and implementing the highest levels of sustainability, working closely with others in our region, the most advanced in the country. The specifications we develop for our clients’ projects lead the nation for healthy products, energy savings, environmental sensitivity, product transparency, life-cycle assessment, and carbon reduction.
All our employees meet directly with the project teams at our clients' offices on a regular, often weekly, basis. Our clients’ award-winning projects are located throughout the Pacific Northwest region, as well as in California, New York, Northern Virginia, South Florida and several overseas regions, currently Africa and Central Asia.
We invest in our employees’ lives and capabilities, with a very comprehensive benefits package and full support of training, testing, and accreditation for architecture licensure, as well as support for certification in many design and construction industry standards programs.
