About the practise
Beck Studio LLC is an office for residential architecture based in Seattle. The studio has completed projects varying in scale from an ecolodge in Nepal to a two-room cabin in the Pacific Northwest. The scope of services ranges from site planning to the design of buildings and interiors.

Design philosophy
The main pursuit of the studio is design quality, achieved through collaboration with clients and careful consideration of place: climate, culture, and topography. Sensitivity to the environment is an important theme in the work, and leads to a continual exploration of the ways in which new technologies (or neglected traditions) can be used to make buildings more responsive to their users and surroundings.
