Krannitz Kent Architects is a small firm in Seattle, Washington committed to the exploration of authentic work in custom residential architecture and contemporary commercial design focused on expressing the individuality of each project.

Our approach cannot be categorized, for design springs from the unique qualities of each particular site and the singular characteristics of our clients. Structural expression, readability of form, truth of materials, and rigorous detailing combine to transcend program and budget, excite the senses, and lift the spirit.

We selected Krannitz Kent to build our vacation home in Big Sky, Montana after seeing another home in the area that they had designed. The home is in a mountainous area on a slope with lots of view potential, which was quite important to us. Bryan did a fantastic job to detail out the interior and exterior to create a stunning home. Krannitz Kent followed our program well so

During the last two and a half months I have only ventured out once or twice a week. The amazing thing is I don’t find it a hardship.  Of course because we have so much glass the outside is almost inside, so we don’t feel enclosed.  But more than that, the condo is such a wonderful space.  The layout feels so natural, organic even, we/life flows effortlessly from room

We worked successfully with KKA on a large and complex residential project. Bryan and Michael were exceptionally collaborative and we worked well as a team to deliver on expectations. They were supportive and provided us with timely deliverables and the right amount of details to build from. The drawings were well thought out and relevant. Unfortunately this is becoming a lost art!

Our experience with Krannitz Kent Architects was wonderful throughout our project. Bryan listened to our needs, challenged us in all the right ways and impressed us with creativity and innovation. Bryan was a valuable asset through the entire build process. We look forward to our next project teaming up with Krannitz Kent Architects!

We have worked with the principals of Krannitz Kent on several projects, starting with designing a ski lodge which was the first home we ever built over 12 years ago and concluding with construction of our new primary residence this last year. These are featured on their websites and the results speak for themselves. We entertain and host guests quite a bit and the places are both both beautiful


I have worked with Matthew Kent for several years and found him to be creative, adaptable and very professional. As a “partner” in the triangle of Owner, Architect, Builder, I found him to be a great asset to the construction process. With clarity in direction and a deep vision of what he wants, I’d recommend him to anyone in a hot minute for their project. We recently worked again

We had the distinct pleasure of working with Krannitz Kent Architects on a challenging remodel. Bryan Krannitz was able to see and create a vision that we didn’t think was possible. We could not be more pleased with the final result. Bryan presented us with various schematic options that complimented our space and fit our lifestyle. Bryan was able to create a modern environment with an inviting warmth to

Bryan designed our new home in Bellevue, which we moved into in Spring 2018. We had varied and demanding requirements. The house needed to incorporate functional spaces for entertaining, hosting guests, and several hobbies. We wanted natural light and plenty of privacy. We wanted aging-in-place accessibility. It had to be Net Zero with excellent comfort and air quality. And we wanted beautiful aesthetics that took advantage of the lot
