Architectureinside out is a holistic approach to integrating the built environment with the natural environment. Interior spaces can be made to suit our human nature and connect with the world outside; capturing views, daylight, solar heat gain in the winter and natural ventilation for cooling. A thorough investigation of all design options results in the best design and value for each client. Special consideration is given to materials that are sustainable, durable and affordable. Architecture Inside Outwas formed as a sole proprietorship in 1993 to serve my clients, friends and family in the Pacific Northwest. It is a diversified practice with experience in most every imaginable design project, fromfurniture to factories. Lately, I have been working on local residential projects, educational facilities and international public works projects. email@example.com Thomas Burkle Architect,Washington State Registration, 1987-2021; NCARB certification, 1994-2021.
