The AIA launched TopicA to provide homeowners, building owners, and community leaders with helpful information on the value of working with an architect.
Whether you already have an architect in mind or are searching AIA Seattle’s Find an Architect, looking on Houzz, or calling based on a recommendation, it’s important to know what questions to ask and how your architect will benefit your specific project. Visit TopicA to learn more about finding and working with an architect.
Created by the AIA Seattle Small Practice and Residential Committee (SPARC), the Northwest Featured Home program is intended to showcase the best of Northwest residential architecture. Our purpose is to educate the public about the breadth, variety and quality of residential architecture in the region. In doing so we hope to raise the bar on building design in the Northwest, starting with the home, the place where people spend the majority of their time.
