Focusing our client's vision into built form!

Staffed by individuals who bring quality and experience to each project, we find inspiration in each new project. The client vision is what has fueled our passion for our portfolio of extensive prior experience. Traho is committed to creating positive experiences and attractive architecture through vision and foresight. Our central Washington location has allowed our practice to be varied in scale and building type. To each project we bring a shared purpose for quality and enduring results.

Our committed team of creative and energetic individuals has produced a great variety of successfully completed architectural and planning solutions. Architectural professionals at Traho provide inclusive, focused and professional assistance. The large majority of Traho's work is performed for repeat clients; a fact of tremendous pride. The firm also has had the opportunity to design a diverse variety of building types. Our team members bring project expertise that includes: medical and health care, civic, public use facilities, housing, educational facilities, office buildings, banking facilities, maintenance facilities, industrial development and churches.

Traho maintains project quality, scheduling and cost control through a meticulous approach to project management, developed carefully through all project phases – planning, design, contract documents, bidding and culminating in expert construction phase control. Control is based on firm's teamwork approach, which emphasizes ongoing communication between Owner representatives and the design team.  As a result, Traho has developed an excellent track record for producing quality work within client time frames and cost objectives.

The word TRAHO is the Latin verb for "I draw", reflecting our commitment to successful design solutions.

Traho Architects lets each project shape its own vision. Our commitment is to respond in appropriate and specific ways to each and every client.  This response also includes the larger picture of the immediate surroundings into which a project is integrated, and to the context of the community in which the site is located.  We are careful to resolve issues of identity, scale, comfort, security and purpose; the design vocabulary becomes an extension of these issues.

Traho brings experience and vision to ignite your enthusiasm and provide successful results for your project.
