Back in 1993, we - Daren and Lisa - met in the first year of studio while studying for our Master of Architecture degrees at the University of Washington. Degrees, jobs, a house, marriage, a dog, an historic industrial fishing complex, and child followed. We established chadbourne + doss architects as a sole proprietorship in Seattle, Washington in 2001 and Astoria, Oregon in 2002. With different backgrounds, experiences, and design perspectives; we work together in a genuine collabration that is inspired, investigative, thoughtful, and always resulting in strong ideas and beautiful, efficient, economical environments.
We take a holistic approach to creating unique environments that are relevant to their place and deeply responsive to our client's needs and desires.

Taking on creative projects at all scales; we have a particular interest in work that engages environment, craft, and community.
