Whether it’s an office, retail space, hotel or restaurant, commercial spaces must reflect the values of the people who will be using them. Working with an architect who can help you figure out your programmatic and financial objectives will enhance the property value of your project, and simultaneously elevate the ambitions of your customers’ community.

To help you choose the right designer equipped to handle any building deliverables you might require, our team has curated a list of the best commercial architects in Everett, Washington. These firms were selected for their accreditations, certifications, and professional affiliations.

Concept Architecture

2615 West Casino Road Suite 1A, Everett, WA 98204

Concept Architecture has done residential and commercial projects in various environments, from the desert and mountains, to the city, and even on the golf course. It begins every project by learning about the client, their project’s site, jurisdiction, and regulations that need to be followed. From there, the Concept team develops the design in collaboration with the client. With extensive expertise in construction, it takes care of the technical aspects of the project and documents everything before the team goes to the city or county for approval.

A member of the AIA, Principal Martin Reimers spent eight of his 13 years of experience in construction and real estate development where he gained an understanding of how buildings are actually constructed. Moreover, he has assisted church building committees in the initial programming, master planning, entitlements, design, and construction of religious structures. Martin is skilled in office, retail, restaurants, schools, child-care facilities, museums, and warehousing facilities. These projects have come to his firm as new buildings, remodels, additions to existing facilities, and tenant improvements such as the Flying Heritage Collection.

The 1950s hangar needed more space to house its vintage airplanes. Concept created a cost-effective, pre-manufactured metal building that enabled a continuous flow for visitors and can accommodate additional planes. To complement the existing property, the LEED Silver-certified building incorporated materials and colors from the original hangar as well as a modern canopy.
