Our Seattle studio, known as ELM Environments, specializes in nature and culture based place-making.

We are applying tomorrow’s thinking to the traditional concepts of habitat and landscape immersion, creating environments that inspire, educate, protect, and define entirely new experiences.

We develop high-performance site solutions that enhance and support the project as a whole, and respect the natural and cultural qualities of the site and the watershed it is integral to. 

We help our clients shape and define great healthy regions, cities, communities and neighborhoods with an unwavering commitment to place, economic vitality, ecological responsibility, health, and quality of life.

From ecosystem recovery planning to conservation developments to zoological environments, every one of our assignments explores all the maximum potential outcome ensuring an adaptive, resilient solution.
