We are architects, creatives and collaborators. Curiosity is the foundation of our work and our daily inspiration.

Patano Studio Architecture is a practice that investigates and implements Building|Nature – our work intensifies natural experiences and naturalizes cities. Our buildings utilize locally sourced materials with specific emphasis on mass timber technologies and wood structures. High in the mountains and out in the open spaces of the west our architecture captures light and creates human-scaled spaces for learning, observing and extending our curiosity into the environment and out into the cosmos. Our urban strategies are based on the city being a living organism – we are building a future where our cities are healthy, regenerative, energy generating centers for living.

“Finding  YES!”

PSA excels at finding a way forward for our clients – from funding to public engagement to delivering projects on budget – our methodology of “Yes!” is the starting point of every conversation.
