Associate | AIA, LEED AP
“My greatest teachers are our collaborators – the engineers, builders and craftspeople who place our ideas in the physical world.”
Matthew Hostetler joined Olson Kundig in 2014 and was elevated to Associate in 2022. Matthew’s project work at the firm has focused primarily on the residential sector, ranging from large, complex estates to intimately-scaled homes. He strives to be a true generalist, working through every phase of the design and construction process to shepherd projects to completion and form lasting relationships with clients and partners.
Influenced by his upbringing in eastern Montana, especially the agricultural structures and homesteads of the region, Matthew has a deep appreciation for the architecture of necessity. As a result, his design approach emphasizes function and efficiency to inform design solutions. A natural storyteller, Matthew appreciates the language of architecture and the way a simple sketch can communicate design intent, evoke emotions, and describe how various parts and pieces add up to a cohesive whole. He also serves on Olson Kundig’s Facilities team, overseeing projects and updates to the firm’s Seattle office, located in a historic timber, steel and masonry building.
