Adam is a design-first thinker who is passionate about pushing boundaries in residential design. He was raised in the Pacific Northwest, where he grew to appreciate the complexity of wood framing while working in construction. He spent years working on large projects at commercial architecture firms, but is most interested in designing highly considered, intentional houses for families. 

Adam is licensed in Oregon and Washington, and holds a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies degree from Washington State University, as well as a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Oregon in Portland.

A lifelong resident of the West Coast, Solomon grew up in the foothills of the Sierra in Northern California surrounded by beautiful mountains and easy access to Yosemite Valley. Inspired by design and construction from a young age, he attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo where he received a professional bachelors degree in Architecture. A decade was spent in San Francisco in the offices of HOK and BAR Architects. He worked on many different project types over the years, but always knew that residential architecture was his original passion.

Solomon is licensed in Oregon and California, and holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo.
