Coates Design

Coates Design Architects is founded on Matthew Coates' vision of Responsible Architecture. The core values of the firm are based on simple principles and strategies: do the right thing, take the long-term view, and create designs that benefit the environment, the economy, and the community.


Modern in the Country

Eric and Melinda purchased a 10-acre plot of land in rural Yelm, Washington, with visions of a new home on the range. There would be vineyards, gardens, an orchard, bees and chickens—typical country fodder—but they would showcase their design sensibility with a not-so-typical modern abode. Enlisting Matthew Coates of Coates Design, the outcome is a modern home that, while striking, is still a natural fit in the country location.
