About Artisans Group

We spend 90% of our lives indoors.

Through inventive, science-based design, Artisan Group creates buildings that are healthy, high-performance, and unrelentingly elegant.

Buildings have a huge impact on our health and our happiness. As an award-winning Pacific Northwest architecture, design, and planning firm, our spaces center function, beauty, and your well-being. 

But there’s even more to us. We’re also:

100% Women-Owned 

Our principals are stars in the industry and among women in architecture. We believe in equal opportunity and proudly employ and promote women, people of color, people in the LGBTQ+ community, veterans, and other members of historically marginalized groups. We’re an OMWBE-certified firm.

Passive House and Prefab Specialists

Not everyone can say this. But we can. We’re among the top Passive House and prefab experts in the industry and have designed some of the most energy-efficient buildings in the U.S. We’re also passionate advocates for energy-saving design and net-zero architecture in our communities. We speak at conferences. We sit on boards. We’re sought after for panels and presentations. You can’t stop us.

Experienced and Ready for Anything

We have a vast portfolio as PNW architects that includes whole neighborhoods, galleries, commercial kitchens, retail build-outs, houses, large-scale remodels, and more. We’ve been at this for a long time and know the ins and outs of creating a successful project, from feasibility study to just-right tile selection.  

Exceptional Designers

Whoever else you’re considering, we bet we can design it to be more efficient, more functional, and more beautiful. Not that we don’t appreciate our competitors. We do. We just know how good our team is and want everyone to experience the brilliance of an Artisans Group design.

Mindful of Your Time and Your Budget

We finish the work on pace and within your budget. 

Design projects are, by nature, unpredictable. We help our clients navigate uncertain timelines and pricing shifts with a deftness that can only come from thousands of hours of experience. We work as your advocates and advisors, working hard to get you connected with pricing as early as possible and helping you understand and navigate the process so you can make the best possible decisions.

Fun to Work With

We laugh a lot. We have dogs in the office. We welcome snacks. When we need to grab the attention of a designer who’s engrossed in a project, we slingshot them with little felt balls. Whimsy is central to the way we relate to each other, the way we communicate, the way we listen. We believe that when we have fun together, we create better designs.
