About mgarchitecture

mgarchitecture was founded in January 2002 by Dan Miles and Richard Glasman to work on K-8 school and church projects for the Seattle Archdiocese. In late 2003 we formed a joint-venture, CHA Architects, with another small local firm, RHO Architects, to pursue golf club house jobs. Since late 2010 Richard has been the sole owner of mgarchitecture after Dan joined Bassetti Architects.

While we excel at the collaborative design process and interacting with clients, it is the the tactile elements of architecture and place making that inspires us most. Richard is a design-oriented architect with a technical background based in hands-on construction experience and furniture building. We pride ourselves in being creative and strategic thinkers as well as organized and approachable leaders.
