Erik Kantola received his M.Arch. from the University of Idaho in 2005, and became a licensed architect in 2009. He has been working in design firms ever since. Erik wholeheartedly enjoys building things and has constructed three homes. As someone who is process driven and focused, Erik values integrity, hard work and enjoying life. His desire is to see design that works well, not just for the architects but the whole gamut: from engineers, to plumbers, to concrete workers, to code officials, to the owner.

Erik was born in Juneau, Alaska and considers it among the most beautiful places in the world. In 2015, he made the second best decision of his life and moved to Seattle to be with his wife Simone. He is enjoying the best of both the urban and natural environment here in the incredible Pacific Northwest.
