About Suyama Peterson Deguchi

Suyama Peterson Deguchi (SPD), founded by George Suyama FAIA in 1971, is an architecture firm based in Seattle, Washington. Ric Peterson, FAIA, joined George as partner in 1983 and Jay Deguchi became a partner in 2002. The firm specializes in northwest contemporary design and offers a comprehensive range of services from architecture to interiors and furniture design.

As architects our goal is to create spaces that evoke a quiet, emotional response. We believe that the use of elemental forms and minimal means can result in architecture that has nuance, depth and richness. Through a process of editing and refining we reduce distractions and decrease the visual noise of everyday life. As a result, our designs have an ambience that resonates whether they are for prized private residences, art galleries or experimental retail boutiques.

SPD’s South Park studio houses architectural offices for our professional staff, as well as 3×10 [Three by Ten], our furniture and accessory showroom.

As architects we strive for timeless designs inspired by ideas that transcend style and trends by addressing the specifics of each site, program and client. We believe that design should not begin with a preconceived idea or style but should flow naturally from a thorough investigation and understanding of each project’s unique challenges. This philosophy ensures that each design will suit the specific needs of each client. By determining the essence of each site and project we create timeless architecture of lasting value.
