About Q Sterry – Inspired Architecture
Welcome to Q Sterry Inspired Architecture. I’m a residential and commercial architect based out of Eugene Oregon. Here’s a bit of my inspired history!
Q Sterry – Inspired History
Growing up on a small farm near the south coast of Oregon, on the edge of the Kalmiopsis Wilderness, our family had a farm. Our farm was mostly self-sufficient and had gravity-feed spring water, a monster garden, chickens, cows, and no electricity. As a result, I learned at an early age to be creative with the materials on hand. Consequently, meant you could always catch me tinkering with parts of motors and gears from a junkyard and building forts in the surrounding forest with scraps of wood and a pocket knife. My childhood was idyllic.
Moving to Eugene, Oregon
In 1985, my family moved to Eugene, Oregon. While taking drafting classes in high school at the age of 14, I began working summer jobs in the construction industry. I continued working, (full-time) for local construction companies after graduating from South Eugene High School in 1992. Working in the construction industry meant that I eventually became a skilled framer and finish carpenter working on custom high-end residences.
Developing a Passion for Architecture
Over time, I developed a deep passion for residential and commercial architecture. In 1994, I decided to started my own residential and commercial design & construction business. Then, in 1996, I applied for and was accepted into the School of Architecture at the University of Oregon. I graduated with an accredited bachelor’s degree in Architecture in June of 2001. TBG Architects + Planners hired me in the summer of 2000 before graduating. There, I continued studying under highly talented and respected architects for the next 13 years.
Starting Q Sterry Inspired Architecture
2013 was when I started my own firm, Q Sterry Inspired Architecture. Since then, I have been enjoying the freedom and flexibility of business ownership. Now I’m licensed to practice architecture in Oregon, Washington State, and Montana.
