Metalworks and Design Studio was founded in 2001 by Michael Northrop.  We offer services in custom metal fabrication for architectural and art applications, including related design consultations.  Work is featured in private residences, commercial spaces and corporate offices in the greater Seattle area. 


The shop space is located in the SODO area of Seattle, conveniently situated for client meetings and project reviews.  We are fortunate to have a talented and experienced crew, able to manage  projects from design concept through fabrication, finish, and installation. In addition to our in house production capabilities, we have extensive relationships with our vendors and suppliers to ensure that projects are executed as efficiently as possible. 


All work is done in close collaboration with the architects and clients. Project process typically involves initial design discussions followed by shop drawings and samples for approval.  During fabrication, projects are available for review prior to finish and installation.   Client involvement is an important part of the process to ensure a successful outcome for all projects.
