Last fall, Washington State University grad Eric Drivdahl returned to his alma mater to share his experience with aspiring architectural designers during “mentor day” with the architecture program.
Design is inherent for Eric Drivdahl, a Pacific Northwest Native local to Bothell. As a child, Tinker toys, erector sets, and blocks served as the means to construct his imagination’s creative visions. He graduated cum laude in architecture from Washington State University and spent the first six years of his career in Ohio working on historic buildings, including several on the National Historic Register. In 2002, he began his journey with the Gelotte Hommas Drivdahl design team and embraced the architecture firm’s passion for client-oriented residential design. He views every project as an opportunity to realize his clients’ dream home through authentic dialog and elegance in design. In 2013, Gelotte Hommas Architecture welcomed Eric as a principal architect, and four years later, he became a name partner. He draws inspiration for his craft from the glory of his Northwest surroundings and enjoys kayaking, hiking, and bicycling with his family.
