At Board & Vellum, we are your advocates for great architecture, big or small. We look for great clients with challenging projects who are willing to bring a collaborative spirit to the table. We believe in setting realistic expectations, delivering a great set of documents, meeting budgets, and finding the design and style that best meets your goals. We love a great modern house and are equally passionate about great old homes and buildings that need an update that looks the part (this Architect isn’t afraid of crown molding). Your project (no matter how big or small) should be a lot of fun (no, really. Life is too short to make this a miserable process to endure), immensely rewarding, and meet your budget and expectations.
Jeff Pelletier, AIA
Principal | Architect
Jeff has known since he was two years old that he wanted to be an Architect. He was one of those kids playing in a room filled with LEGO bricks who grew up to be an adult practicing architecture in a room filled with LEGO bricks. It is a profession he loves deeply.
After moving from New York City in 2001 following graduation from Cornell University’s Architecture program, Jeff invested heavily in Seattle. He spent a decade working for area firms before founding Board & Vellum in early 2011. Tapping into his extensive experience in residential, retail, commercial, and multi-family projects large and small, the company is focused on complicated and precisely detailed projects utilizing clear communication, a collaborative design approach, and excellent project management. Jeff is your advocate the whole way through. In a very short time Board & Vellum has gained local buzz and grown to a staff of a dozen, and last fall Jeff was recognized by Puget Sound Business Journal with their prestigious “40 Under 40” Award.
Jeff lives on Capitol Hill, a short walk from the office, with his husband, 2 dogs, and their two young sons. In his free time he enjoys hiking, skiing, volunteering with local non-profits, cooking, drinking wine, and hunkering down in his LEGO room. He also truly enjoys serving on the board of Allied Arts and the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce.
