About Us

Environmental Works Community Design Center is a 501(c)3 community-based nonprofit providing professional architecture, landscape architecture, and planning services to nonprofit organizations, municipal agencies and under-represented communities in Washington State. Since our founding in 1970, we have provided feasibility/predevelopment studies and complete architectural services for human services agencies, community facilities, affordable housing providers, and public art projects. 

Working in both the public and private sectors, the staff of Environmental Works understand the need for community involvement, the impacts of having multiple funding sources, and ways of working effectively with pre-established budgets.

Environmental Works is committed to the effective use of capital funds in creating sustainable communities. We pride ourselves on providing quality architecture within this challenging framework and working to see that the ultimate social purpose of the building is well-served in each architectural design. In addition, Environmental Works has a long-standing commitment to socially and environmentally sustainable design. As a result of our ongoing Sustaining Affordable Communities grant-funded initiative, we have developed a number of successful strategies for designing ecologically thoughtful and affordable buildings. These strategies are based on three core issues – conserving resources, promoting local economies (human, material and natural) and the careful adaptation of a building to both the natural and cultural conditions of the site.
