SHED was founded in 1998 as a design-build firm and has since evolved into an architectural firm.

As one of the leading Seattle architecture firms, SHED specializes in residential projects, including new homes, interior remodels and home additions.

No project is too big or small. The firm has taken on a wide variety of projects, ranging from $250,000 to $25 million.

Although SHED has its own style, their focus is primarily on light, space, material choices and attention to detail. Many of their residential home designs incorporate metal and steel.

The SHED team strives to create a space for clients that is uniquely their own and complements their lifestyles. The team uses 3D software every step of the way to better visualize materials, light and space. Clients work with the SHED team throughout the design process to ensure they’re on board an in control every step of the way.

In addition to design services, SHED also creates objects and furniture for their clients.

Urban Farmhouse Project

Situated in the heart of Seattle, the Urban Farmhouse is a remodel of a 1960’s mid-century house. When the owners approached SHED, the home was “practically falling apart.”

Preserving as much of the original structure as possible, SHED brought the home back to life. The charcoal metal siding gives the home a contemporary look and helps the structure blend into its surroundings. Wooden accents play well with the metal features.

Height was added by leaving the new second floor LVL framing exposed. Large sliding glass doors were added to connect the kitchen to the gardens and new back porch. The kitchen also provides easy access to the vegetable garden through a newly installed side door.

The stairway features large operable windows that face North and South to maximize natural light and allow for passive ventilation.
