DAVID COLEMAN / ARCHITECTURE is known for creating spirited, refined, modern buildings that are timeless, light-filled and evocative of place. Trained in the arts, architecture and design, we bring a holistic sensibility to our work, incorporating sustainable, innovative materials and strong, livable visions. Our buildings are highly responsive to the particularities of the land and custom tailored to the needs and aspirations of our clients. Started in Vermont in 1986 and now based in Seattle, Washington, we have designed projects nationwide, from the Pacific Northwest to California, and from New England to New York and Florida. Our work transcends the mundane, inspires the senses and nurtures the soul.
