We are architects, creatives, & collaborators that work to design authentic engaging environments.

Patano Studio is an architecture collaborative based in Seattle, WA. We deliver complex projects with unusual parameters across varying scales. We strive to design low energy use, high-performance buildings that feature locally sourced materials.

Patano Studio has completed an impressive variety of projects since our founding in 2003. We eschew the typical corporate approach of project specialization. Instead, we have extensive experience working with both private and public clients, and design expertise ranging from single family homes to airports.

Our 15 person studio has the capacity to work efficiently on the largest projects by providing design team continuity, but our nimble size allows us to build personal relationships throughout the project duration. It’s this combination of expertise, versatility, & design complexity in a mid-sized studio that sets us apart, giving us the tools to succeed and the ability to tell our clients “yes.”
