Partner / Principal

Matthew started his life in design as an Interior Designer before pursuing a career in architecture. For over 25 years, he has focused his talents toward custom residential architecture and has dedicated himself to fostering collaborative relationships with owners and contractors.

“Timeless design begins with a compelling organizing thought or ‘parti’ that is executed through rigorous detailing and the synergy it creates between architecture and landscape.”

Matthew holds an Associate of Arts in Interior Design from the Art Institute of Seattle, and a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from the University of Washington. Matthew started working with Bryan in 2014 and became a Partner in 2016. In addition to his design work, Matthew oversees marketing and business development initiatives.

Michael Conover, Assoc AIA

Growing up on a farm in rural Montana, Michael learned early on that hard work and dedication gets a job done.  Michael focuses that work ethic into his project designs, starting at residential architecture firms in Montana and Seattle before joining Krannitz Kent in 2007.  Michael loves the collaborative interaction of client, architect, and contractor along with the blending of built structure to natural landscape to instill a unique character into each project. 

Michael holds a Master of Architecture degree and a B.A. in Environmental Design from Montana State University. As the resident technophile, Michael also leads the 3D modeling, 3D printing, and virtual reality tools.
