We Got This.

Here’s what we often hear from clients:

      • “We’ve never done a project like this before.”
      • “We are on a pretty tight budget.”
      • “We need help figuring out our next steps.”
      • “We’ve never worked with an architect.”
      • “We’re having some trouble with the City.”
      • “Can we even do this?”

Whatever the hurdles are on your particular project, we have the experience to (legitimately) tell you that “We got this.” We will work with you to make the design, permitting, and construction process actually enjoyable! 


Additions, historic rehabilitation, remodels, custom design – we take the responsibility of working in your home seriously.

It’s a big investment, and it’s PERSONAL.

You’re launching, moving, or expanding… you want a space with brand alignment that meets your current and future needs.

You need an EXPERT to lead design and permitting.

Your Project Navigator

For all projects, our integrated architecture and interior design expertise and efficient processes, plus the most recent technology allow us to provide the same service as a “big” firm  but we do it with a personal touch at a value-driven price point

We navigate clients confidently through what (and this is a hard truth here) can be a complex and stressful process by providing adept guidance and a seamless experience.

The first step is easy: schedule a free 20-minute consult to see if Sequel is the right fit for you and your project.


sequel: a piece of work that is complete in itself but continues the narrative of a preceding work

Every building and every client have a unique story to tell. The places we value the most are the ones where we understand that story. Each project is a “sequel” of sorts, one more chapter that builds context in our shared space.

At Sequel, we just happen to tell stories in  architecture instead of text.

One of my favorite elements of working with Sequel Architecture was how excited they got about the work. It was as if my space meant as much to them as it does to me. They have made the process of making my vision for the space so easy and fun.

We worked with the team at Sequel to add a guest bedroom and bathroom in an unfinished basement in our 1920s bungalow. They did a great job thinking creatively to make our project feasible and efficient. I would recommend them to anyone!

Sequel is great to work with and so knowledgeable. Their gifts blend an appreciation of historic places and a deep desire that those spaces benefit people and their community today and tomorrow.
