SMR Architects

We design, preserve, and advocate for affordable housing. It’s our passion!

SMR Architects is a 36-person, full-service architecture firm established in Seattle in 1977 as Stickney & Murphy Architects. Over our 44-year history, we have emerged as a leader in the fields of affordable housing, historic preservation, and sustainable design. Earlier this year, SMR acquired Tonkin Architecture and is in the process of fully integrating the Tonkin staff into our firm. We expect this acquisition to be complete by the end of 2021 and will result in expanded opportunities for our client and project partners as additional resources and expertise can be brought to each project.

Our work is frequently honored both locally and nationally for its exemplary contribution to affordable housing design. Most recently, SMR was recognized for the following awards.

SMR’s office is located in Pioneer Square, an expression of our appreciation for the value that historic structures provide to the character of our community. For more information on our firm, please visit
