With my strong desire for personal growth and knowledge, I strive to provide for myself and those around me an energetic and enjoyable environment for creating “wealth” in all avenues of life. I act honestly and sincerely through a positive energy and strong worth ethic. I stay true to my beliefs and focused on the goals of fulfillment in the spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, and financial aspects of my own life and of the lives I come in contact with.
ADM Architecture was created and founded by Aaron D. Murphy, a Poulsbo, WA Architect with over 15 years of experience in both commercial and residential design, permitting, and construction documents. Over the course of his career, Aaron has been a part of designing and permitting projects of all types, styles, scopes, sizes, and budgets. He has done work within the Seattle area, Kitsap County, King and Pierce counties, and all surrounding areas of Western Washington and the Olympic Peninsula, which total well over 1 million square feet of designed and built commercial and residential projects. He has designed medical “TI” lease office spaces within existing buildings, wood frame construction dental clinics of 5,000 s.f., as well as 100,000 s.f. office and warehouse facilities built in “tilt-up” concrete construction, and small sheds and covered decks too! With his experiences at different firms throughout Seattle, Pierce, and Kitsap counties, his scope of work has increased continuously throughout the past two decades, and many projects can be seen just by driving around in your own towns in this area.
Aaron is also a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS). To learn more about this program, please visit our Aging in Place page.
Aaron was also the previous owner of “Silver Lining Properties, LLC,” a real estate investment company he founded in 2005. Aaron designed and implemented extensive residential remodels on each home the firm purchased, and sold or leased/rented them. That experience broadened his depth of knowledge in residential design and construction, along with managing multiple project teams and personnel, and tracking timelines and costs of both a project and a business. SLP also allowed Aaron to gain a great wealth of knowledge in real estate industy transactions, documents, financing, and the like. SLP incorporated design solutions ranging from simple low cost classic style additions and remodels, to full up scale makeovers of entire interiors and exteriors, based on what fit the home’s needs, style, and the market research.
Aaron’s career has been extensive and continuous in the fields of architecture and real estate for over 15 years. He’s had the opportunity to start a business, to help save and grow a business, and to lead in the scripting, systems, and marketing of a business more than once. His well rounded experiences bring a lot to the table as he presents ADM Architecture throughout western Washington.
ADM would enjoy talking to you about your next project!
Aaron is a businessman and an entrepreneur, and enjoys giving back to his community. But who else is Aaron, when he’s not at work?
“I love spending time with my beautiful kids, and getting outside with them (when our weather allows it) for some nature time and fresh air! Good parenting can be a full time job easily in its own right, and that keeps me pretty darn busy all by itself, when I’m not at work.
“I strive for balance in my life, as it makes each part of what you do more efficient and beneficial. I enjoy many sports: basketball, baseball, tennis, racquetball, skiing, gym/weights, etc. I am getting back on the tennis court and racquetball court more regularly again. I am also pursuing meditation with a goal of “daily practice,” and I am trying to read more (non-work related) literature that’s been on my shelves for quite awhile related to personal growth, spirituality, and related topics. I constantly work to find that balance between work-life and the rest of my life, while still providing the best customer service to my clients!”
