Tim James Rhodes, RA. AIA

I formed Rhodes Architecture + Light in the summer of 1995 to be close to residential design. I wanted to understand the people I was working with to realize the houses they wanted while keeping my hands in the details and materials.

Before that… eight years of architecture, including a six year degree combined with minors in philosophy and psychology, led to Seattle and a small architectural practice in the Pike Place Market. I learned design and management as part of an inventive firm building stores, offices, and residences. Over twenty years later I am fortunate to have worked with many private clients who wanted to build spaces that were new, unique, exciting, and surprising…. on a budget. I believe that art is most successful with limitations.

Off the clock I've raised two children, studied history, read too much, explored some of the Pacific Northwest, created two small communities (and had to live in one), and learned Muay Thai. I am fortunate to be in Seattle practicing architecture and to have loyal and creative people who work with me.

Josh Meharry, RA. AIA. LEED AP.

Josh's interests in residential architecture stem from a belief that homes are one of the few spaces that people interact with on a deeper, personal level and have the ability to shape the way the residents feel about themselves, their connection with their community, and their environment.

Josh Meharry, RA. AIA. LEED AP.

Josh's interests in residential architecture stem from a belief that homes are one of the few spaces that people interact with on a deeper, personal level and have the ability to shape the way the residents feel about themselves, their connection with their community, and their environment. Josh earned his professional Bachelor of Architecture degree at the University of Oregon during which time he studied architecture and city planning in Rome and Delhi, and completed his thesis studio in Portland, Oregon. After receiving his degree, Josh spent four years working at GBD Architects on a range of project types and scales including condo towers, commercial office buildings, urban landscape designs, and community master plans.

Josh has also worked independently on small commercial and residential design projects, and has consulted for a development group on issues of sustainability. In 2010 Josh and his wife relocated to Seattle where he worked as a framer for a custom home builder before joining up with Rhodes Architecture + Light. His diverse skill sets in design, documentation, 3D modeling/ rendering, and construction make him a strong asset throughout the design process. Outside of architecture Josh enjoys experiencing foreign countries and cultures as well as outdoor activities such as camping, kayaking, snowboarding and surfing.

Hugo Javier Carrion Berru

Hugo’s love of architecture started with a technical drawing class in high school. He’s been drawing and creating spaces ever since. Originally from Ecuador, Hugo graduated with a bachelor’s in Architecture from the Catholic University of Quito.

Hugo spent several years with a residential architectural firm in Quito, Ecuador gaining experience as drafter, designer and construction manager while working on both residential and commercial projects. In Ecuador Hugo had the opportunity to independently design - build a 3,000 square foot residence in a suburb of Quito. Through this practice he fell in love with the personal approach that residential architecture demands: the process of getting to know the clients and understanding their needs in order to create unique spaces that welcome them while allowing for their full enjoyment. After moving to Seattle in 2009, Hugo has had various roles in the construction and architecture fields, including carpentry, freelance drafting and an extensive background in ADA. In addition, Hugo has continued his education with Construction Management classes, and a Digital Design and Fabrication certificate at The University of Washington. Hugo joined Rhodes Architecture + Light in the fall of 2013.

When not working or doing homework, Hugo enjoys soccer (playing and watching), salsa dancing and going to the movies.
