About Mark

Mark Olason was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. His father introduced him to the tools of construction at a young age and his mother, a fine arts major, indulged his interest in art. His path toward a career in Architecture was set.

Mark was a founder and partner at the Seattle firm of Anderson, Olason, Marsh, Elster Architects. Over the years he worked on many custom residential projects on the west coast and Hawaii.

Seeking a change in 2013, Mark left AOME to form Mark Olason Design. As a sole proprietor Mark is focused on bringing a simpler aesthetic to his work. His pure forms, functional plans and environmentally conscious designs touch on minimalism without sacrificing comfort and economy.

Mark and his family live on Bainbridge Island, Washington.
