Filter is a creative placement agency that provides staffing services as well as media design and production. The company’s new address consolidated three offices into one downtown location. The goal for the new office was to introduce a clean, modern aesthetic to a dark, compartmentalized existing office space and give a distinct character to each of the three groups that make up the agency. Each group is associated with a corresponding a color which breaks up the space visually into separate zones. The punches of concentrated color stand out in contrast to modern white walls. The use of color goes beyond just paint on walls; it becomes space defining by
extending to the floor plane and even furniture in areas to create spaces within spaces as well as group identity.
Northcraft Law Office
This Seattle law office is organized around a spine of casework which incorporates the library, file cabinets, standing height work surfaces and storage. This wall runs along the main corridor and separates private offices from support spaces. The private offices at the building perimeter feature a band of clerestory windows at the corridor wall to allow natural light into the interior spaces without compromising the privacy required in the offices.
KIRKLAND FAMILY RESIDENCE
Our client’s family had recently moved into this home situated just above Lake Washington in Kirkland. The size and design of the house served the needs of their young active family quite well, with a generous layout that orients toward beautiful views to the west. Materials and finishes including concrete floors, natural stone countertops, handsome wood windows, and fir which appealed to both client and interior designer, and it was determined that all that was needed was to balance the hard architectural materials with texture and color in the furniture, rugs, and accessories. The new furniture layout takes advantage of the beautiful view and provides for gatherings of extended family and friends with stylish extra seating in the form leather benches that slide under the red consoles and Herman Miller wood stools. The area above the fireplace was the only architectural detail modified, replacing a traditional wood paneling with horizontal reclaimed wood bleacher boards of old growth fir with randomly placed cutouts. This is crowned with the softwood sculpture of a magnificent deer head as a playful twist on the Northwest lodge tradition.
Our purchasing company, StockUp, provided the new furniture pieces, designed and provided the custom furniture, and procured accessories and artwork for the project.
BN Builder’s Office
BN Builders is a rapidly growing General Contractor who frequently collaborates with Stock & Associates on projects. We were asked to design a creative, open office space for them that would foster communication and feature their craft by using construction materials in interesting ways. BNB encourages fun at work and hosts frequent celebrations, so a great lounge space was also part of the program for this office.

It was great having the team in one place, guiding me through the process of design, permitting, interiors, and subcontractor selection. They met my expectations in every way, and I would definitely hire them to do another project.”- Ralph Epling and Lisa Harstedt
