About our Work

We are designers, we are builders – and our work is informed by our experience as both. We seek out simple modern solutions that implement vernacular forms and materials indigenous to the Pacific Northwest. Clean lines, expression of structure and material, and sustainable building practices are at the core of what we do. Our projects range in scale: from custom steel work to new construction, we work closely with our clients and are up for most any challenge.


Brian established EDGE in 2001, capitalizing on his degree in architectural design from the University of Washington, and a hands-on apprenticeship in fine woodworking and general construction. With project scope increasing, Nina joined ranks in 2004 after completing her MArch, also from the University of Washington, where she has retained close ties with her alma mater as a part-time lecturer and studio critic for the UW Department of Architecture.
