Lively engagement results in extraordinary places. We find elegance in necessity, elevating the core principles of each unique site and building project to reflect our clients’ aspirations. Through collaboration, care, craft, and discovery, we reveal architecture’s inherent optimism, contributing to our local community and to the global stewardship of natural and built environments.
Our practice is focused on the renovation, repair, and adaptation of historic buildings for contemporary use; conserving embodied energy, habitat, material and cultural resources.
SHKS Architects—4 principals, 2 associates, 10 designers and 2 administrative personnel—is located in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle.
