Decades of experience — and accolades

Over more than 30 years, Greg Bjarko and Chris Serra built a distinguished portfolio as part of BjarkoSerra Architects, which the longtime friends co-founded after meeting at Montana State University.

At the beginning of 2023, Chris moved on from the practice to launch SerraWersinger Architects, and Greg renamed BjarkoSerra Architects as Bjarko Architecture Design.

Modern design for residential and commercial

Bjarko Architecture Design will continue to deliver the modern design that earned BjarkoSerra widespread acclaim—past projects have been honored by AIA and featured in publications including The New York Times, Luxe, Arcade, Dwell, Seattle Homes and Lifestyles, Seattle Magazine/Northwest Home and Garden, Pacific Northwest, and Seattle Metropolitan.

Bjarko Architecture Design continues to provide creative yet economical solutions for new and remodeled residences, vacation homes and retreats, multifamily residences, religious institutions, daycare and community centers, fitness and health facilities, dance studios, and restaurants and craft breweries.

Personalized service

In addition to creating modern, approachable structures and spaces, Bjarko Architecture Design provides a straightforward process and highly customized service—Greg is personally involved with each project, maximizing client engagement and ensuring satisfaction.

Greg Bjarko


Since venturing to Seattle from Montana in 1983, Bjarko Architecture Design founder Greg Bjarko has pursued architecture with the belief that even the smallest project can have a profound impact on the people who experience it and the place where it is located. His collaborative approach to design is central to engaging clients and colleagues, and serves as the foundation of each successful project.

When he’s not working or embarking on adventures with his wife and two sons, Greg is dedicated to community involvement. He has served on the board of directors for Hilltop Children’s Center, a progressive child-development center in Seattle; his other volunteer roles include the Queen Anne Community Council board and vice-chair of the council’s Land Use Review Committee.
