SMR Architects

We design, preserve, and advocate for affordable housing. It’s our passion!

Over our 40-year history, SMR Architects has emerged as a leader in the fields of affordable housing, historic preservation, and sustainable design in Washington. Our practice is grounded in a belief that all people deserve enduring, high-quality design. For us, architecture is not just schematics and specifications; it is about the people who ultimately use and inhabit the buildings we design. At SMR, we create living spaces; our structures provide a place for life to happen as they enrich, anchor, and interact with the neighborhoods of which they are a part. Our team’s collaborative and creative approach to problem solving, experience with neighborhood outreach and engagement, and sustainable philosophy help us serve both our clients and the community, always serving the interest of others first.

As a testament to our innovative design of affordable housing, one of our projects, Plaza Roberto Maestas, recently was selected as the recipient of the 2017 AIA/HUD Secretary’s Creating Community Connection Award. The award recognizes projects that incorporate housing within other community amenities for the purpose of either revitalization or planned growth.

SMR’s office is located in Pioneer Square, an expression of our appreciation for the value that historic structures provide to the character of our community. For more information on our firm, please visit
