Architecture that makes
a difference for communities

ARC Architects was founded as Architecture Resource Collaborative in 1976, with our first project for Northwest Center.  The firm's mission to serve communities and non-profits by designing delightful places continues to this day.  We create spaces that contribute to the well-being of communities, serve our clients’ mission and culture, and are environmentally friendly.

Welcome to ARC Architects.


ARC is an experienced partner through every stage of the process.

Over 44 years of practice provides the experience and resources to guide projects from early ideas to successful development. We can support your project from the beginning steps of programming, site analysis, and feasibility studies to facilitating community meetings for grassroots support. We understand the importance of listening, consensus building, and growing the design based on common goals. The result is new structures that are reinvigorating communities and organizations across the Pacific Northwest.
