“To build to the greatest benefit, you want to take advantage of the features and opportunities of your site. If you don’t do that, you can potentially spend more money, be less satisfied with the result, and waste opportunities to interact with your site.”

After more than a decade working for various top architectural firms, Oregon architect Erich Morgan Karp, AIA has launched his own firm, Cella Architecture.

The new Portland based firm is focused on custom new home design, additions, and remodels as well as unique commercial spaces. Practicing architecture since 1997, Erich brings extensive experience and knowledge to each project. He has designed and worked on numerous fine custom homes throughout Oregon, including Portland, Lake Oswego, Cannon Beach, Gearhart, Sisters, Bend, and Ashland. Additionally, he has worked with home owners to create high quality, detail oriented remodels of their existing homes – suited to their lifestyles and budgets, while staying true to the style of their homes and reflecting his clients’ unique requirements.

Cella Architecture is founded on the idea that design is a collaborative effort between client, architect, and contractor. Embracing that approach from the early stages of a project results in designs which truly reflect the clients’ needs and desires, and are completed on budget and on schedule. Every person on the team (architect, client, contractor) has a different set of skills and different abilities; no single person has all the answers. By working together, you can take full advantage of their individual knowledge, applying the strengths of each party for a better designed and better built home or remodel.

Erich feels a strong connection to the region and believes that architecture is a significant way to enhance the beauty of and our connection to the Pacific Northwest landscape. The formation of Cella Architecture will better enable Erich to source high quality local materials, and design in harmony with the site – including the built and natural surroundings – to create the most natural and well-integrated home possible.

“To build to the greatest benefit, you want to take advantage of the features and opportunities of your site. If you don’t do that, you can potentially spend more money, be less satisfied with the result, and waste opportunities to interact with your site and the possibilities it may offer,” says Erich. “Each and every site is different.”

Cella Architecture and Portland architect, Erich Morgan Karp, AIA, look forward to many years fulfilling the architectural needs of residential clients throughout Oregon.
