Seattle, renowned for its vibrant music scene, thriving tech industry, and endless outdoor opportunities, is also a city that’s often found at the forefront of action around progressive and meaningful change. Perkins Eastman’s Seattle studio provides architecture and urban planning services focused on creating sustainable communities where people can live, work, play, move, and create. Whether it’s a race to determine the most sustainable mode of transit, a thought-provoking installation at the Seattle Design Festival, or just meeting colleagues for happy hour to watch the sunset over Elliott Bay, the studio thrives on the creative energy and passion for change that is emblematic of the Pacific Northwest.
From the start, our studio has focused on design that contributes directly to the livability of our urban communities. Our market sectors include:
- multifamily housing (affordable, market-rate, seniors, and more)
- mixed-use development
- transit facilities
- planning for residential communities
- rezoning applications
- city-shaping development planning agreements
Our work seeks to restore and reinvigorate communities through thoughtful, practical, and cooperative solutions around the built environment, mobility, and equitable spaces. Weaving these common threads throughout a diverse project portfolio, our studio approaches everything from urban skyscrapers to community farms to transit infrastructure with shared ideas and ideals.
