Cone Architecture has roots in the South. Our owners hail from Texas and South Carolina, with team members from North Carolina, Alabama, and Oklahoma. Our firm was founded in Seattle in 2015, where we spent our first five years making a collective impact on the future of housing. While our Seattle office continues be a leading voice in design, we aim to expand our horizons and create solutions for other rapidly growing communities – those we know and love.
Cone Carolina, our new satellite office, seeks to reconnect with our roots and expand our collaborative practice to the community of Charlotte, North Carolina, and the larger South-East region. The expansion is led by Principal Summer McEneny who has been with Cone since 2016. After spending ten years in the Pacific Northwest overseeing projects through design, permitting, and construction, Summer decided to relocate back home and lead the Cone Carolina office. In the Summer of 2021, we welcomed Hailey Helms to the team as an Architect in Training. We’re thrilled to see our Carolina team growing and are excited about the passion for residential design Hailey brings to the table.
Cone’s parallel experience in Seattle, and hometown roots in North Carolina, make us uniquely qualified to help bring relevant, community-oriented, and respectful design for housing to the greater Charlotte area and beyond.
