Elara | Seattle


CLARK | BARNES believes that designing with responsibility does not merely include attention to form, space and details. Our focus, as Seattle Architects, is on a broader commitment to the broader community, historic fabric, and context.

Our passion for sustainable design has been realized in projects throughout the greater Seattle area for the past 25 years. CLARK | BARNES’ Architecture has become a proud part of Downtown Seattle, Renton, Lynnwood, Redmond and other cities in the Puget Sound region.  Our historic preservation, healthcare, and commercial designs can be found in the local neighborhoods of Ballard, Lake Union, Capitol Hill, and the International District.

CLARK | BARNES’ architects, planners, and interior designers create innovative, timeless, and community-centric Architecture that enhances the urban environment while responding to its historical context and provides the users with vibrant places to live, work and prosper.
