what HUB is:

a place or thing that forms the effective center of an activity, region, or network 

a Seattle, Washington based architecture studio located in the eclectic Greenwood/Phinney neighborhood, north of downtown

The name “HUB architecture” reflects the studio’s approach to the design process.  The intent is to produce a thoughtful solution for each project by collaboratively working with clients, consultants and contractors for the benefit of our clients and the community.

The principal of HUB architecture is Trevor Stanley, a licensed architect in Washington State and a L.E.E.D. accredited professional.  

[L.E.E.D. (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a nationally recognized rating system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council to promote sustainable design and building practices.]

how HUB works:

Each design is approached a bit differently and solutions are usually part rational response and part intuition.

We work to identify the unique variables in a project, a bit like the variables in a mathematical equation.  Through discussion and careful listening a solution is formed that meets the quantifiable requirements of the client.  Strong communication is essential to accurately identify those needs.

Satisfying a project’s programatic requirements is the basis for a thoughtful design.  However, it is equally important that the design solution “feels right” to every client, from the initial concept to the built product.  Early in the design, we work to identify a theme to clarify and guide the project’s development.  As the project evolves, we move forward as a team with an understanding of where we have been and where the project is headed to ensure the design becomes reality as it was envisioned.

So, that’s the gist of how HUB addresses a project, regardless of size.  The spaces within and surrounding buildings have a significant influence on the people that inhabit them.  We work to ensure it is a positive influence.
