Replinger Hossner Osolin Architects ( RHO Architects) ) is a Seattle area architectural firm specializing in single-family homes, small commercial, and hospitality design.
Our work is a reﬂection of the people with whom we have worked and the places where they have chosen to build. Through a collaborative process, we strive to create places uniquely suited to the environment and the people who inhabit them.
