Our project management and problem-solving skills facilitate the construction process and control costs.
With more than three decades of experience, we've built our reputation on meeting our clients' functional needs and budgets while producing sustainable, elegant and timeless buildings.
Since 1989, Jeff has co-owned and operated Soldano Luth Architects, an independent, Seattle-based architecture design practice. After working with Ralph Anderson and George Suyama, Jeff entered private practice with partner architect Mike Soldano. Jeff brings to each project the benefit of his sophisticated design background. He is passionate about buildings and their relationship to the site and region. In his spare time, Jeff enjoys skiing with his brother, hiking, and volunteering with his neighborhood Little League.
Chad received his Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. He moved to Seattle to pursue Master's Degrees in Architecture and Real Estate at the University of Washington. Living for a time in the slums of Kampala, Uganda, influenced the focus of his architectural studies on high density housing communities. Chad has three years of experience in architecture, and four years of experience in commercial construction. He enjoys traveling, photography and astronomy.
TJ was drawn to architecture while remodeling houses and working for a structural engineer as a teenager. He earned an undergraduate degree in architecture at the University Idaho and recently a Master of Architecture at the University of Washington. He is passionate about design in a variety of mediums and scales, from the graphic quality of drawings to the task of placing buildings in the built and natural environment. He relishes the spiritual and technical overlap that architecture provides. A northwest native, he also enjoys sailing and hiking.
Eric graduated the University of Washington with a Bachelor's degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering as well as a minor in mathematics, unaware that he would eventually pursue a career in architecture. Eric began working at Soldano | Luth in 2016, where he focused on the engineering aspects of building and design. Since then he has developed an interest in architectural design, and plans to return to school to earn a Master's of Architecture. Outside of the office, Eric enjoys skiing, boating on Lake Washington, and watching Husky football.

"Jeff had great ideas and was readily available to answer any questions or address any concerns we had and did so in a timely manner. He worked well with our designer and our general contractor as well as various subs. We made modifications along the way that were easily interpreted by Jeff and he was able to turn our ideas into tangible outcomes that were not only functional but also visually stunning.
"Jeff brings a lot of knowledge and experience to the project. I would highly recommend him to others."
