Firm Description

Integrus Architecture is a Pacific Northwest design practice offering architectural, structural engineering, experiential design, and interior design with offices in Spokane, Seattle, and Portland.

At Integrus we create the environments that bring people together and support the best of human aspiration, potential, and goodwill. We DESIGN FOR THE COMMONS.

Our practice centers around the concept that to create these spaces we must first appreciate the intricacies of how we go here, consider the motivations behind our desires, and imagine a future in which everyone feels accepted. This is the COMMONS. Driven by this belief, we focus our efforts around three pillars: Supporting Architectures of Care and Belonging, Shape Spaces of Inclusion and Resilience, and Sustaining our Environments through Stewardship and Innovation.

·         Serve as the lead administrator for our K12 Learning Environments focus area, including facilitating team meetings, researching, and tracking opportunities,

·         Serve as a key contributor to both our strategic marketing plan for K12 Learning Environments, and tactical implementation of that plan,
