Back in 1953, when Bruce Walker started the firm that today is known as Integrus, the pedigree he brought to bear could hardly have been more promising: an undergraduate degree from the University of Washington followed by studies under Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. That the practice’s first location was an abandoned elevator shaft in Spokane’s Davenport Hotel is purely incidental.
Over the years, Integrus has certainly made its mark. Many of the most notable and recognizable buildings throughout Washington and the Pacific Northwest, in fact, are the product of a design aesthetic that Walker himself rather humbly referred to as “expressing the solution most appropriate to the particular project.”
Integrus’ design approach continues to be based on a long-standing commitment to quality and integrity in the built environment. In our design work we strive to incorporate the timeless qualities we consider essential to the creation of distinguished architecture – qualities that make our buildings livable, functional, well constructed, environmentally sound, and enjoyable to experience.
