Chris Lee joins BLDD from the Seattle area but spent his formative years in Chicago's West suburbs. While having been trained as an interior designer, he embraces all aspects of architecture and believes a holistic approach to whole building design produces the most successful projects. Chris particularly enjoys the blending of creative expression with technical science that is at the root of architecture. He had specialized in retail design for the first half of his career, and the latter half has found him building an expertise in the senior housing world, where he is continually inspired by the nurturing spirit that is ingrained there.
Outside of the office, Chris loves to be with his wife and two kids, getting outdoors, and sliding silently through the water in a kayak or sailboat. He might be found riding on his mountain bike on a single track trail or tackling another home improvement project. Chris really enjoys cooking without a recipe and improvising jazz and blues on his vintage tenor saxophone.
