Bio

Christoph Kruger is the owner and principal of Kruger Architecture. He has over 25 years of experience working on residential, commercial, and educational projects throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Christoph became interested in design at a young age while he built with Legos, drew houses, and observed construction of the family weekend cabin. His early discovery of the intriguing intersection of visual arts and technical problem solving sparked a lifelong passion for design in architecture.

Christoph was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, to parents originally from Europe that then settled in Anchorage, Alaska. Over two decades ago Christoph placed roots in Seattle, a region that for him blended the beautiful landscape of Alaska with the vitality of a growing international city. He continues to enjoy the Puget Sound area and outdoor adventures by hiking, biking, and skiing with his wife and daughter.

Approach & Process

Beginning

Building new or renovating an existing home or business is an exciting endeavor. It can also sometimes feel a little challenging and overwhelming. So, we begin by starting a conversation and asking questions about what a client wants. Then, we explain the process and answer the client’s questions.


Design

The project is guided by the client’s needs, the conditions of a specific site or space, orientation, natural daylight, materials, and budget. We find creative solutions to make an inspired design that is possible to implement and aligned with your goals. We combine all our gathered information to develop a design that functions well with how you wish to live in your remodeled home or custom new home. We go through a similar process for clients needing design for their business or commercial property.  

Once the overall preliminary design is worked through we proceed with more detailed drawings to obtain building permits and for construction.  We can assist you with the many selections of materials, fixtures, and finishes for your project. Throughout the process we provide feedback and advice on the project budget.

Construction

We continue our collaborative process into construction by being available for questions, providing site visits, and assisting the contractor in interpreting the construction drawings. We will be with you as your guide and advocate at every step, from idea conception to the turning over of the keys for your new and beautiful space.
