Matt Frantz

Originally from California, Matt came to the Pacific Northwest to earn a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Washington. While in graduate school, he pursued a dynamic course work that investigated the connections between historic buildings, adaptive reuse, and the impacts of buildings on climate change. This course work has greatly informed his view of the practice of architecture today and in the future. In his spare time, Matt loves exploring new coffee shops, bakeries, and patisseries around Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. 

Lively engagement results in extraordinary places.

SHKS Architects finds elegance in necessity, elevating the core principles of each unique site and building project to reflect our clients' aspirations.
