COOP 15 specializes in modern custom home design. The firm began in 1992 as Lane Williams Architects, and became Coop 15 in 2005. Our studio name refers to our “coop” (a.k.a. studio), originally located at 15 McGraw Street in Seattle.
We are a small team of architects and designers devoted to the creation of custom, single-family residences, both new construction and major remodels.
With extensive experience in the renovation of mid-century modern homes by renowned architects such as Paul Hayden Kirk, Ibsen Nelson, Al Baumgardner, and Roland Terry, our work has taken us to California, Oregon, and Connecticut.
Principal architect Lane Williams, AIA, has designed over 100 houses and received 20 awards for home design, including three Seattle Times/AIA Home of the Year Awards plus nine additional nominations. His works have been featured in Metropolitan Home, Trends, Fine Homebuilding, Sunset, Residential Architect, books, and many regional publications.
