Bjorn & Poulsen Fine Home Design, is a firm serving clients on the Olympic & Kitsap Peninsulas and Seattle. The firms’ Principal, Darrin Petersen, has been designing custom homes for 30+ years. His ability to envision beautiful balanced and artful spaces, that reflect the distinct personality of each one of his clients, has resulted in many beautiful, and timeless homes to hs credit.

Darrin has always had a passion for design and learning from a young age. Largely self-taught, including 2 years at Montana State University, he pushed himself to develop mastery of his talents to a higher level with each project. The desire to study the nuances of traditional architecture, led him to the east coast, where he established his studio at the age of 23 in the mountains of West Virginia, where he practiced for 17 years. He designed significant homes and estates in the Virginias and Maryland, including commissions in London and Beverly Hills.

Darrin’s fascination with the Pacific Northwest led him to relocate his practice to the Seattle area in the summer of 2009. The studio is currently located on Anderson Island, near Tacoma. Darrin is an avid traveler and enjoys hiking, kayaking, photography and spending time traveling on the Olympic Peninsula, British Columbia, and Orcas Island. His studies of vernacular architecture from his travels greatly influences his creativity and sensitivity to the natural environment for his projects.


Watching dreams become a reality intrinsically changes people, and I am grateful to be a part of that transformation.”
