Erik Oldham


My goal is to be your guide through the life of your design and building process, working with you towards the realization of a unique environment that is custom tailored to your site, your vision and your budget.

I provide cost-effective, client-based architectural services for projects of all scopes and sizes.  Each project is a personal commitment, and I approach each with a thoroughness and thoughtfulness that reflects and respects the depth of your own commitment.

I believe every project is an opportunity to creat a respectful, beautiful environment.  I want to help realize a project's full potential in a design that rises above the ordinary.

I offer clients over 30 years of experience, with over 20 years of experience as a as a sole practitioner.   I have worked on a wide variety of project types, from large hospitality, retail and office designs to small TI projects and home remodels.  I also designed for and lived in a diverse range of climates and building environments.

In addition to my architectural practice, I have developed, general contracted and sold a number of my own residential designs.  From laying foundation drains to scheduling sub-contractors and inspections, this hands-on experience has given me a deep understanding of how the development and construction process interacts with, and benefits from, thoughtful design.


I was born and raised in Colorado, and have a BA from Wesleyan University and an MArch from Yale Univeristy.  I am NCARB Certified and am licensed in the states of Washington, Oregon and Colorado.

I have lived in Bend, Oregon since 2003 with my wife and daughter.
