Giulietti / Schouten Architects is a Portland-based architecture firm designing unique, client-driven projects throughout the Pacific Northwest and nationally. Founded by Dave Giulietti, AIA in 1987, and joined by partner Tim Schouten in 1993, the firm builds on their 30+ years of experience creating places for people that value the significance of design. Having completed hundreds of residential and light-commercial buildings, the foundation of our success comes from listening to our clients and their goals in order to create beautiful and functional architecture that makes a difference in their lives.

Managing a small firm has allowed the principals to maintain close relationships with team members and all design aspects of each project. We look to expand the design horizons of our clients and create unique spaces for their specific needs. We believe that the success of each project is highly dependent on a strong communication between the architect and client. While being best known for our residential and specialized housing projects, we continue to be called upon to design a variety of building types including theaters, schools, religious and church facilities, restaurants, retail, and offices.

The present firm is a synthesis of special abilities of principals Dave Giulietti, AIA and Tim Schouten, AIA, associate Jake Weber, AIA, and designers Tony Hasenberg, Drew Stricker, Ben Stickney, and Chris Dara with administrative support from Robin Crandall. Giulietti / Schouten Architects celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2012, and we’re excited to see what the next quarter-century has in store.
