Bassetti Architects

Since 1947, Bassetti Architects has designed places where people learn, work, play, and connect. We believe that architecture is most successful when it reflects client goals and thoughtfully interacts with the surroundings. Our signature is collaborative, enduring, and spirited design. The Bassetti staff is comprised of a talented team of architects, interior designers, graphic designers, planners, and office support. Our firm approach is to share our creative synergy and to join with clients and the community in a truly inclusive process with a commitment to excellence.

Our offices in Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon focus on architecture, planning, and interior design with an emphasis on sustainability. We work primarily on academic, civic, and cultural institutions for public and non-profit clients. Our goal is to articulate our clients’ visions into projects of superior design and enduring quality. While our approach to problem solving and design is consistent, our end results are unique to user and community goals.

In addition to excellent and responsive design, our services include historic preservation, public engagement, project management, programming, high-quality document production, construction administration, and experiential graphics.

We have been honored with local and national awards including the James D. MacConnell, Pinnacle, and Polished Apple awards for excellence in educational facilities planning and design; the Washington State Valerie Sivinski Award for historic preservation; and the AIA What Makes It Green? Award for sustainable design.
