Ankrom Moisan Architects

We believe that an integrated approach to design produces the best ideas. By collaborating across all the firm’s disciplines—architecture, interiors, urban design, and branding—we explore multiple perspectives on a problem and create a shared vision for the project. We combine experience from a variety of different project types to inform and enhance each design concept, discovering new insights in the process. This mixing of minds and ideas creates fertile ground for finding the best path to helping our clients achieve their goals. Architects Stewart Ankrom and Tom Moisan formed Ankrom Moisan in 1983 to provide integrated architectural, interior design, and urban design services to our clients. The mission of Ankrom Moisan is simple: Create Places Where People and Communities Thrive. We believe that when we achieve this, we help our clients achieve success. We attribute much of our success to the work we’ve completed in Portland’s renowned Pearl District. Located just north of downtown Portland, we completed the first conversion of a warehouse to housing and played a dominant role in the development of this vibrant neighborhood. Ankrom Moisan has designed more than 2,132 housing units and 22 projects, including restaurants, offices, retail, and housing in this district alone. We are now a national firm of more than 350 staff members and offices in Portland, Seattle, and San Francisco. Our portfolio includes award-winning mixed-use housing, condominiums, apartments, affordable housing, senior housing, student housing, healthcare, offices, hospitality, and retail. Much of our work is in urban environments and many of our projects include a mix of uses.
