View Ridge Residence

“The clerestory windows become apparent, flooding light into the house from the west, so it undeniably creates this dynamic and exciting quality from the moment you arrive.”

-Jennifer Pinto of Seattle Magazine for the AIA Home of Distinction July 2019

bear run

Bear Run Cabin

“The house and studio respond to and echo the dramatic landscape in which they sit.  A compact site strategy creates distinct spaces that are nestled together.  All of this was achieved on a modest budget.  It’s a beautiful house.”

-Deborah Berke, Gray Awards 2017 Judge alongside James Corner, Philippe Starck, & Commune Design

Zig Zag House

“This modest, contemporary home has been executed with great delicacy and spirit in its plan and details. The architect employed an interesting and innovative pallet of materials.”

town center 1

Town Center Pavilion

“An extraordinarily simple idea, simply executed, demonstrating good judgement and marvellous geometry. The pavilion establishes an identity for a “place” in a flat landscape. A fine piece of environmental furniture, beautiful both day and night”

AIA Jury: Julie Eizenberg, Ziva Frieman, Leonard Parker; Aaron Betsky

Lopez Island Retreat

“An elemental economy of means leaves little to add or subtract without detracting from the whole. This sparse residence gives the primitive a modern voice”

AIA Jury: Stephen Ehrlich, Brian Mackay-Lyons, Maryanne Thompson; Doug Kelbaugh

Queen Anne Residence

“An interesting use of colliding typologies to resolve an extremely modest program. The economic use of limited resources provides a very rich spatial experience”

AIA Jury: Fumihiko Maki, Raphael Vinoly, Eva Jiricna

“We were unanimous in our praise for this house. The architect said he was letting go of the rules in this design, but we think he wrote some excellent new ones.”

AIA Jury: Lane Williams, Sian Roberts, Nancy Satterberg

Madison Park

“Coleman is a master of architectural detailing, and that fact is in full evidence on this project. The interior is like a piece of fine cabinetry housed within the shell of an old Seattle home, explored much like a dollhouse opened up to expose its lovingly crafted interior”

AIA/Seattle Jury

Buchter Retreat

“The strength of this project lies in it’s site planning. Overriding is a theme: absolute simplicity”
