History

Yost Grube Hall practices architecture as a collaborative team that strives to create architectural excellence while working carefully to achieve our client’s goals and needs. Founded in Portland in 1964, Yost Grube Hall specializes in architecture, interior design and planning services for commercial, educational, and governmental clients in the Northwest and overseas. While the firm’s work is diverse, ranging from corporate headquarters and commercial facilities to resort and university buildings, all of our projects share a unifying theme: design that is in harmony with the community setting, client values, and user needs.

YGH’s multi-disciplinary practice includes planning, programming, architecture, and interior design specialists. In our single office, we combine these specialties with in-house sustainability, cost-management and building information modeling (BIM) experts. We have defined a team-based “learning organization” model and believe that a unified collaborative culture attracts, trains and empowers the best staff producing the best work. Our stable staff size over the past fifteen years, working together in one office environment, provides us the strongest basis for consistent design quality and client service.

YGH Vision

To be a dynamic, fun and rewarding environment that provides the highest quality design through collaboration.
