Seattle, WA, US



The founder of Inhabit Design, Jeremy brings an extensive background in education and civic work to the profession. An architect with a master’s degree in engineering and prior construction experience, he offers a deep understanding of the whole of planning and design problems, from a campus context or community’s story to building systems and construction details, always seeking poetic synthesis of all concerns through meaningful architectural experiences that merge the art and science of design with elegance. Drawing from his passion for high performance design with real results, he’s also consulted on sustainability issues in both North America and China. These experiences have given Jeremy a genuine respect for each person’s role in each part of the design process as well as an understanding of the artistic, technical, and emotional needs of multiple user groups, enabling him to put the right pieces in place and cultivate results that are successful for all parties involved. Jeremy uses this extensive education experience, industry knowledge, and commitment to service to achieve client goals at the highest level, creating places people thrive.
