Tether is a full-service creative/branding/ad agency thriving in Seattle’s historical Pioneer Square. Their office occupies the fourth floor of a Heavy Timber building, and it was imperative that the modern space and upgrades complement the existing structural features of exposed wood, brick, and steel. With the addition of modern bench-style seating, several new collaboration areas, and unique plywood floors, this project was a successful marriage of new and old.

Why Work With Us?

I have worked with Jim Burgess and his organization for over 25 years in Seattle. Their collaborative team effort on all projects is great. They put the client’s needs first, and play a critical role in developing a business/office environment that suits the client.

I have worked with Burgess (Design) in varying capacities for over 20 years.  In addition to great people, I’ve appreciated the design expertise they show for many of the projects we undertake as well as basic tenant improvement projects.  They have also been an excellent building architect managing CAD drawings as well as BOMA.  They provide an excellent service.

– Shawn Jackson, General Manager, Urban Renaissance Group

We’ve worked with Burgess Design for more than a decade, and they are skilled at finding creative and beautiful solutions to meet our evolving design needs.  [Their] expertise and ability to interpret our vision give us confidence in a successful and pleasing outcome, making any remodel experience an exciting endeavor.
