Chris’s design philosophy combines a thoughtful pragmatism integrated with a passion for simple spirited modern design. He views each project as an opportunity to improve the quality of life of it’s occupants through modern design that is approachable and visibly rooted in it’s place and use. He has always pursued architecture as a personal passion and continually seeks opportunities to inform and inspire his practice through travel, photography, and other endeavors.
Chris Serra has practiced architecture for over 20 years. His early employment with small design firms in New England and Los Angeles provided a foundation for independent practice in Seattle relatively early in his career. In addition to extensive experience working with private clients to transform or create their residences, he has also worked with corporate clients, public agencies, day-care centers, churches, restaurants, and developers on a wide range of projects.
