Tiscareno Associates

Tiscareno Associates is an award-winning Northwest architecture and urban design firm focused on creating architecture that realizes a client’s vision, reflects the community’s values, and puts people first. Since 2002, we have distinguished ourselves through fresh, collective thinking and smooth processes on projects valued at $500,000 to $90 million in construction cost—each one uniquely designed to be sustainable and superbly suited to its site and intended use.

Our core staff of 25 people, half of them licensed architects, combine their appreciable talents to deliver on many project types, including mixed-use projects that require significant multi-party coordination and community acceptance.

Other architectural services we excel at include:
•New construction (e.g., office buildings, retail, commercial, mixed-use, and multifamily)
•Building modernization, renovation, and adaptive reuse
•Transit station design and transit-oriented design
•Master planning, site planning
•Sustainable design/LEED-certified construction

We operate in a friendly, ego-free atmosphere where all parties—clients, consultants, and architects—engage equally in finding optimal design solutions. We use both 2D CADD and 3D BIM (building information modeling) digital technologies to reduce iterative design time, speed up decisions, and ensure the accuracy of interconnected systems. We are also well versed in LEED requirements, understand documentation requirements, and make quality control an integral part of every project. Our unique blend of people and process means we consistently translate client needs into functional, attractive designs that deliver on tight timelines and budgets and meet all municipal zoning and codes.

We look forward to applying our skills and dedication to your next project.
