Architecture is rooted in nature.

It is also a refuge from nature,
maintaining our connection to the world, while offering shelter.

People spend nearly 80% of their lives in buildings. Coates Design Architects strives to address this reality by contributing buildings and spaces to our communities that are provocative, healthful and inspiring. Spaces meant for living.

We approach every project as an opportunity to design something unique that reflects the needs and goals of the individual client and creates a meaningful sense of place. Our team seeks to reveal creative design strategies and technical innovation that are inspired by our clients, the site and the ecological context.

We are collaborative by nature and we involve our customers early and often in the creative process. Our work reflects clean and elegant forms, well-proportioned spaces and natural daylighting combined with a “livable” touch which many designers overlook. We tailor innovative and livable design solutions through a customized approach for each and every client.
