ABOUT FIVEDOT

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

We believe that architecture is a backdrop to life and can set the stage for great things to happen. We see each project as an opportunity for collaborative on and we work closely with our clients to give form to their ideas. Sustainability is woven throughout our approach and is considered from the beginning of each project. We strive to provide effective and thoughtful design solutions to today’s complicated challenges.

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.   

We believe in the power of architecture for positive change. Fivedot has been providing innovative and community focused architectural solutions to municipalities and global non profits since 2006. With extensive experience in community engagement, we specialize in helping businesses, governments and non-government organizations work with their communities to create spaces that make lasting impacts.

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
