Brent Watanabe, Architect
Brent Watanabe



I want to create a positive impact. As an Architect, Certified Passive House Consultant, and LEED Accredited Professional, I want to leave the world in a better place than I found it by designing for a carbon-free future.


I want to create spaces that are delightful to be in; human-centric, healthy, and energized. I aspire to provide each client with an elegant solution that blends thoughtful design with high performance and sustainability.


With over 15 years of experience, I have worked on a multitude of projects, from high-rise mixed-use skyscrapers to residential renovations. Every project, regardless of its size, deserves a thoughtful solution.

My Approach


The key to creating a positive impact is collaboration. Together, as partners, we will bring your vision to life and solve your unique design problems. My goal is to provide a beautiful design that meets your needs while highlighting options to improve energy efficiency.

Prioritize Health
& Comfort

I strongly emphasize the importance of how a space makes you feel by controlling thermal comfort, indoor air quality, daylight, and humidity. Imagine a space free from drafts, cold spots, overheating, and a fresh supply of clean, filtered air. By focusing on user-centric designs, I create healthy, comfortable, accessible spaces while minimizing their environmental impact.

Passive House

Why Passive House? The Passive House design standards are some of the most rigorous for providing healthy, comfortable, energy-efficient buildings, across the globe. By utilizing passive building principles, we can reduce our building’s energy consumption by up to 90%. This allows us to minimize our carbon footprint, and increase resilience and durability by reducing a building’s dependence on the energy grid.
