Why Hire Propel Studio To Design Your Custom Home?

Our team of designers pride ourselves on listening closely to our clients and working together to deliver inspiring residences that respond specifically to your lifestyle, the context of your property, and make you and your family feel at home.

We understand that each client is unique and has specific wants and needs for their home and deserves a design that responds to their lifestyle. Each project we undertake is custom designed to respond to the characteristics of the site, surrounding context, the client’s program, and budget. We don't come with preconceived ideas, but do bring years of experience as we work with you to find the right solution for your project.

Our client centered approach has lead to great success with custom home projects to date, leading to great architecture that responds to context, addresses sustainability, and satisfies the client's needs. 

Our Custom Home design specialties include:

  • Modern and Contemporary styles

  • Luxury amenities

  • Inspiring interiors

  • Strong connection between the architecture and surrounding landscape

  • High performance "sustainable" design strategies

  • Designing for Aging-in-place, ADA Accessibility, and Barrier Free Design

  • Close attention to details and materiality

  • Healthy indoor environments

  • Latest technology

  • Integrating efficient and green building systems

As we embark on a journey of discovery with our clients, we challenge preconceived ideas, and offer a range of concepts for the new house. Together we discuss these options and iterate as we mold the design to respond to your taste and how you envision living in the new home. This process includes many discussions as we get to know you and craft a project that is architecturally inspiring, blending beauty and function.

It is also important to note that although we are proudly based in Portland, Oregon we have undertaken projects across the United States and abroad. If you are looking for a new primary residence, a wonderful vacation property, or second home to retire in, we would love to work with you.
