Ron Mitchell, AIA, NCARB


A humble but confident strategic advisor, Ron Mitchell knows how critical the first 60 seconds are of any hotel arrival. That first impression sets the tone and establishes a sense of place; it can make the difference between a loyal guest or a one-time visitor. Inspired by the natural world, Ron weaves organic patterns and textures into design solutions that offer breathtaking encounters from start to finish.

Throughout his career, Ron has worked in 30 different countries, with the most high-profile clients in the world, directing project discovery, design, and delivery for five-star properties, boutique hotels, and luxury resorts. He captures the story each client wishes to tell through their site, architectural design, and guest experiences. His work reflects memorable stays for visitors while addressing the business needs of owners and operators. Among the serenity of the San Juan Islands, you’ll find Ron at home, working in the garden, making a new piece of furniture, or crafting other spatial artforms.
