We are obsessed with the idea of enjoying what we do. It’s our mantra that governs how we design and help you bring your project to reality. It may sound simple, but we’re just nice people (with mad skills) that want to work with other nice people (like you) that are passionate about their project dreams and goals.
What’s with the name? “Bench Dog Architects” was adopted from the woodworking tool, bench dog; a removable clamp that holdfasts a masterpiece while being worked. Our thought: a servant to its craft. The same as how we conduct our work with humility and thoughtful consideration. Bench Dog Architects suggests a bench of a strong team and dog that signifies loyalty.
While Bench Dog Architects is new, our team has been designing projects across the globe for 30 years. Our portfolio includes large to small and mixed-use to specialized projects. We’re taking what we’ve learned and catering it specially for you through an ultra-collaborative design process. Together we will develop a design for your project that will cater to your user, improve ROI, and ultimately speak to you.
What we do: Master planning, building design, project conceptualization through working drawings, construction administration. We also collaborate with highly skilled partners, especially if it means further catering our services to meet your specific needs.
We look forward to learning about you and your project.
Fine print: Did we mention that we are award winning designers, LEED accredited, FitWel ambassadors, board members of industry organizations and universities, volunteers for non-profit organizations, licensed in multiple states in the US, and love living in Seattle, Washington?
