Our greatest assets are the partnerships we've cultivated throughout the years we've been building custom residences. We believe in collaboration and know that the best products are created through strong relationships and an unwavering quest for quality construction. For us, construction is a natural extension of the design process. We understand the complexity of modern architecture and how the infrastructure must be exact for the finishes to be flawless. Our unique approach to building means you get to dream, create and rest assured that your moments of inspiration and the genius design you have put into place will be completed the way you want. We are not just another builder claiming to be craftsmen. We have learned through a slow process of doing the work, time and again. Our reputation has been built through discipline, repetition and apprenticeship. That means you get a job done right, the first time, like you imagined.
At Marvin, we are driven to imagine and create better ways of living. With every window and door we make, we strive to bring more natural light and fresh air into homes, and to create deeper connections with the natural world. We put people at the centre of everything we do by designing for how people live and work, and imagining new ways our products can contribute to happier, healthier homes.
As a fourth-generation, family-owned and operated company, Marvin fosters a culture committed to living our values. Our commitment to doing the right thing, working stronger together, and thinking differently inspires us to be better every day. Made with exceptional skill, our products deliver quality you can see, touch, feel, and offers performance that stands the test of time.
Driven by a spirit of possibility, our commitment to people goes beyond the products we make. We commit to long-lasting and trusting relationships with our employees, customers, channel partners, and communities.

YES, IN MY BACKYARD.
BLOCK BY BLOCK.
50% of ticket proceeds to the GRAY Awards Party are donated to The Block Project, an alternative approach to alleviating homelessness.
The BLOCK Project aims to put a completely self-sustaining 109-square-foot BLOCK Home in the backyard of one single-family lot on every residentially zoned block within the city of Seattle. The homes, designed by BLOCK Architects, will have solar panels for electricity, filtered rainwater for plumbing, and self-composting toilets. POSSIBLE is developing an app to mobilize entire neighborhoods, forming a support net for BLOCK Home inhabitants that will help them get back on their feet. The initiative is a non-profit program managed by Facing Homelessness. Facing Homelessness launched in Seattle in 2011 and has 25 affiliate programs in other cities.
