DiMella Shaffer

Founded in 1965, DiMella Shaffer is a privately owned, Boston & Seattle-based architectural planning and design firm whose talented staff of architects, planners, and interior designers create innovative, inspiring designs for institutional, residential, and commercial clients. We are passionate about architecture and believe that buildings can positively influence our environment and the people who live in, work in, or simply experience them. At the same time, we recognize that architecture is a business and a craft, and that success is ultimately achieved through the right balance of both. Emphasizing a pragmatic approach, we focus on teamwork, strong management leadership, and innovative thinking to ensure our architectural vision meets each client’s needs, goals, and budget.
