Our History

As early adopters of Passive House design, Artisans Group was bound for greatness from the start.

Principals Tessa Bradley and Roussa Cassel started the firm as an Olympia-focused architecture studio designing Built Green and LEED projects. 

Once we discovered the wildly effective building science behind Passive House design, we were all in.

Today, we’re a nationally focused, nationally recognized architecture and planning firm, lauded for our Passive House design proficiency and our commitment to combining sustainability and function in refreshing, ever-more-inventive ways. 

Together, our principals have 35 years of architecture practice and a slew of local, regional, and national design awards. Our staff can point to a massive portfolio containing hundreds of successfully constructed projects.
