Douglas Minarik AIA NCARB | Principal

MINARIK ARCHITECTURE was founded in 2013 by Douglas Minarik. Doug has a diverse professional background, contributing to strong technical and design skills. Prior work experience in Oregon, Washington and Montana ranges from large complex institutional projects to neighborhood-scaled mixed-use infill. This has led to a focus on work that is defined simply by having an intimate relationship with place, whether it is a wide open landscape or dense urban environment.

Doug has been fortunate to be involved with projects receiving numerous design, infill and historic preservation awards. He has been published by the AIA’s Young Architects Forum and the designer of houses featured in Mountain Living and New Western Home.

Doug is a Henry Adams Medal recipient with a graduate degree in architecture from Montana State University. He has taught at Montana State University and is a frequent  guest critic at Portland State University.

Doug was co-chair of Portland AIA’s design jury selection committee for two years, volunteered with Architects Without Borders managing the design of a teacher’s dormitory in Tanzania, and designed a playhouse for the Make-A-Wish Foundation with R&H Construction.
