Doug Landsem Architect

Doug is the principal architect at Douglas Landsem Architect AIA. He grew up in Seattle and graduated from the University of Washington. He started early in the construction industry, learning how to build from his father who was a general contractor. He took his industry experience, together with his design and architecture education, and moved to Bellingham in 1982 to start his own firm.

He is a member of the Architects Institution of America, and served as the president of the local NWAIA chapter. He has won awards and honors, but Doug says that the best accolades he receives are from his clients who are still living in the homes he designed for them a long time ago.
