Throughout his career, founder and president Douglas Fredrikson, AIA has distinguished himself in the industry and profession by the personal attention to detail he brings to every project. The diversity of experience, awards, and project types he has accumulated in 38 years of practice speaks of his commitment to the clients and their projects. His past success is due in large part to a level of communication and personal dedication that is best achieved in a highly focused environment.

Design is a process of discovery, wherein a fundamental understanding of a client’s goals is critical as it provides the basis for all future decision-making and a strong pragmatic framework in which to work.
Architecture is a discovery of process, wherein the application of leadership and experience execute strategy towards the desired results. It is also the active pursuit of the appropriate aesthetic that makes each project unique and harmonious to a particular context and time frame.
Success is achieved by capitalizing on opportunities and maintaining a clear vision of where the process is going.
Value is the result of the intelligent application of good design and its immediate impact on the issues of economics, public awareness, and energy conservation that influence a project’s perception and presentation to the community at large.
Douglas Fredrikson Architects offers this expertise and quality with a small focused practice that is representative of his past success and ultimately the client’s success.
