Designing with Responsibility

Clark Barnes LogoSince 1993, CLARK | BARNES, formerly Clark Design Group, has provided architectural, historic preservation, and interior design services for buildings throughout Seattle, WA. Its commitment spans from form, space, and details through the broader community, historic fabric, and context.

Projects Throughout the Seattle, WA Area

The completed projects of CLARK | BARNES include Hampton Inn & Suites, King County Courthouse, and The Publix + Warehouse. Its teams of experts are currently working on several exciting projects, including:

Clark Barnes Greenwood Project
The Greenwood project, which is at the site of a natural gas explosion that destroyed several structures, includes a six-story, multi-family building with 70 residential units.

Architects, Planners, Designers

To attract and retain top talent, CLARK | BARNES offers a comfortable work environment that inspires creativity and tools that enable its people to focus on developing innovative strategies. Ideate Software applications for Revit are included in that toolset.

Ideate Software develops tools to provide Revit users in the architecture, engineering, construction, and owner industries with unprecedented control over their data and to solve persistent workflow problems. Its solutions include Ideate Sticky, Ideate Explorer, Ideate BIMLink, and IdeateApps. They enable Revit users to save time, increase accuracy, improve project deliverables, and elevate design.

Clark Barnes Publix + Warehouse Project
The Publix + Warehouse redevelopment received the 2017 NAIOP Award for Best Redevelopment/Renovation, Historic Seattle’s 2017 Preservation Award for Best Rehabilitation, and the Washington State Department of Archeology SHPO Award for Outstanding Historic Building Rehabilitation.

“I use Ideate Explorer and several tools in the IdeateApps collection,” said Zack Zimay, Designer, Digital Design Manager, CLARK | BARNES. “Ideate Explorer is valuable when I need to change every instance of an element within a project at the same time. And the IdeateApps tools reduce the amount of time I spend on monotonous tasks I don’t want to be doing in the first place.”

Ideate Explorer enables Autodesk® Revit® software users to keep their BIM projects clean and accurate by automatically searching for, filtering, quantifying, indexing, and selecting all elements in the current view or the entire Revit file. IdeateApps makes everyday Revit tasks easier than ever. It’s a set of Revit applications designed to increase team productivity, decrease the time spent on common tasks, and increase the accuracy of BIM data in a Revit model.

Clark Barnes Hampton Inn Project
The Hampton Inn & Suites are situated in Renton, the heart of King County. It’s one of the fastest growing areas in the Puget Sound area. This hotel project has 105 guest rooms with panoramic views of Lake Washington.
