In 1985, John Vetter & Kelly Denk founded Vetter Denk Architects, based on the simple notion that architecture is capable of elevating our daily lives. For 32 years, their unique practice has delivered finely-crafted design work that harmonizes with nature, tradition, and culture.

Vetter Denk has contributed to a diverse range of project types, including high-end single family homes, urban developments and many unique ‘one-off’ projects. Whether a restaurant, office building, winery, rowing club, children’s museum, hotel, or a homeless shelter - the common thread within all this work has been an unwavering commitment to design excellence.

Vetter Denk's process embeds their work within a client’s particular needs and aligns the design with that unique perspective, which culminates in thoughtful architecture and a true sense of place. They have developed the vision, management and execution skills critical to repeatedly achieving the high standards that set Vetter Denk apart from other firms.
