Best Practice is a nimble design-intensive firm located in Seattle, WA. Founded in 2011 by Ian Butcher, Best Practice engages in a diverse range of work, from residential projects to large scale office & cultural works. We believe that meaningful design is a balance between content, beauty and function, and we take inspiration from the real-life needs of our clients and choreograph intuitive experiences. Our mission is to champion the needs of the people with whom we work, all while seeking to provide innovative solutions that explore the precarious balance between content, beauty, function and the realities of budget & time.
Best Practice is fortunate to have a close working relationship with designers, artists, scientists and engineers and is always seeking to collaborate with like minded people on any scale of project. It is these talented individuals who lend their craft and insight to our projects, helping us realize a vision that provides a measure of unique, locally crafted feeling in all of our works.
