Seattle Architecture Firm


Fivedot is a collaborative architecture and design firm based in Seattle. 

We believe that architecture is the backdrop to life. Fivedot is a collaborative architecture and design firm based in Seattle. Our roots as a design/build firm influence our practice and we strive to design simple, elegant, and beautiful spaces.  We see each project as an opportunity for collaboration and we work closely with our clients throughout the design and construction process to provide effective and thoughtful design solutions to today’s complicated challenges. Sustainability is woven throughout our approach and is considered from the beginning of the project all the way to the end of the project. 


As a Seattle architecture firm, our projects range from homes and cabins to institutional work such as educational facilities, libraries, and community health clinics. Fivedot has worked on projects in over 10 countries and on three continents ranging from single-family homes to villages for 150 families


Fivedot began as a design/build firm. We built what we designed. While we no longer perform contracting services, our background in the building trades gives us a unique architectural perspective. We pride ourselves on designing projects that can be built and on successful collaborations with contractors. We work with homeowners, institutions and municipalities to create well crafted, elegant spaces.
