You’re not here just to find an architect. You want a team willing to work with you, to design a Haven that fits who your are and how you want to live.

You want a beautiful Design that stays on budget with a great return on investment.

Think of us as a Workshop with all the tools needed for a successful project. And, unlike other architects, we have actual construction experience. Your contractor will love us.



Whether traditional or contemporary, a country getaway or a place in the city, an addition or a remodel, your home is a reflection of you. It needs to be designed around who you are and how you wish to live.

Over the past 20 years, the Haven team has designed over 400 residential homes. So we can guide you through the entire process of creating your dream home, from design to permitting to contractor negotiations. We handle all the little details and headaches so you can focus on what matters the most — your future home.

Together we’ll develop a living environment that fits your needs and complements your surroundings.

In other words, a Haven that is uniquely your own.

Commercial design is a balance between beauty and budget. There are unique complexities in both the planning and building stages — working with multiple consultants, dealing with various agencies, addressing local and international codes, and working with contractors. It can all seem overwhelming.

That’s where we come in.

At Haven, you get more than an architecture firm. You’ll have a team of architects, design technicians, and a permitting expert. We have the experience to ensure your project looks great and runs smoothly while staying on budget.

Haven Design Workshop is listed as one of “The 11 Best Commercial Architects in Bellingham, Washinton” by GC Magazine.
