JPC Architects‘ downtown Bellevue office, located in the Elements building at 909 112th Ave. NE, opened in 2010. The firm, which was founded in 1986 in Redmond, has designed offices for several prominent Eastside businesses such as Concur, Microsoft, and Valve. It also has helped create numerous medical and retail spaces.

“We explore current design trends in the ever-changing contemporary workplace, encouraging creative peer-to-peer, thought-provoking dialogue and real-time client visioning to fashion an environment that is inspiring, sustainable, and improves lives,” says principal Char Patterson.

We think they did a pretty good job on their own space, too.

JPC is one of Interior Design magazine’s 1001 Design Giants. The office has a summertime vegetable garden on the kitchen patio, and one-third of the office regularly attends Fire Fitness boot camps twice a week.

The office is 10,000 square feet and holds 55 employees.
