Why Hire Propel Studio To Design Your Custom Home?

Our team of designers listens closely to our clients and works together to deliver inspiring custom residences that respond to your specific lifestyle, to the context of your property, and to what makes you and your family feel at home.

We know that each client is unique and has specific wants and needs for their home. 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 our own preconceived ideas for your home; we listen to what you want and need and draw from our years of design experience to develop the right solution for your project.

Our client centered approach has lead to great success and happy homeowners, resulting in beautiful and sustainable architecture. 

Our Custom Home design specialties include:

  • Modern and Contemporary styles

  • Luxury amenities

  • Inspiring interiors

  • Strong connection between the architecture and surrounding landscape

  • High performance and sustainable design strategies

  • Designs for Aging-in-place, ADA Accessibility, and barrier free Design

  • Close attention to details and materiality

  • Healthy indoor environments

  • Latest technologies and smart homes

  • 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 initial concepts for the new home. 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 space. This process includes many discussions as we get to know you and craft a project that is architecturally inspiring, blending beauty and function.

We are proud to note that although we are 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.
