At Michael J.K. Olsen Architects we are passionate about designing architecture that enlivens the spirit while being environmentally sustainable. Founded in 1994, we recognize that we have an opportunity and responsibility to preserve and enhance the very qualities that define place.  We accomplish this through “contextual” architecture that reflects not simply the Client, but the forms, details, and regional qualities of the surrounding landscape. Such “contextualism” results in a wide variety of design vernaculars built on a foundation of concise, sustainable, practical design solutions.




Michael J.K. Olsen Architects offers a full range of professional services with extensive experience in a wide variety of project types. Single and multi-family residential is the mainstay of work but small to medium commercial projects are undertaken as well. Michael places an emphasis on team building whereby qualified individuals are brought together in a collaborative environment as required to meet a specific client’s needs.
