We are a full service professional architectural and design firm founded in May of 2012. Our many years of professional experience began in 1997. A high level of service is important to us. We aim to keep the efforts of our office always facing the client’s objectives. Every built environment demands a unique response that is driven by each individual client. People have varying backgrounds, personalities, likes, dislikes and each has different interests that are important to them. We see it as a great service to be able to create a multitude of architectural styles that suits a client. Working alongside your builder, we work hard to try and provide a pleasant process as well as beautiful and creative design solutions that are sensitive to you, your program, budget and environment.
As designers, we are given tools to design using any style. Not just one style. Designers design. They don’t just draw log cabins all their life, or modern office buildings. Consequently, whether you live in a Manhattan Flat and we are helping to build a Mountain Ski Lodge; or you are a local business owner wanting to squeeze a Contemporary new restaurant into an existing downtown renovation; or perhaps you are an L.A. retired couple dreaming of buying an old Idaho farm and turning it into a French Country Estate, it is our privilege to be able to offer you a professional quality in both service and design that are suited specifically to you.

Shelli grew up in Idaho learning how to play in the great outdoors and admire its’ God given beauty in all of its Seasons. After graduating with a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Idaho (1997) as a mom and a wife, plus a study abroad in Greece and Italy, she enjoyed working on great projects in places like beautiful Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Sun Valley, Idaho, Connecticut and Park City, Utah. In 2000, she jumped at the opportunity to attend, and then graduated, from the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art Summer Program in N.Y., N.Y. It is there that her passion for detailed and refined Historical and Classical Architecture melded with her current Modern day Western Style upbringing.
With a mix of University education and traveling abroad, and a grandpa teaching his young granddaughter a few life lessons, Shelli developed a sensitivity to style and sense of service to others that is unique. While a high level of professionalism, follow through and simple kindness is important, so is the ability to not take life, or self, too seriously. There is always that one time where it is just more important to take a client white water rafting! Or hike a mountain peak at lunch time with your daughter. Good design has balance that is pleasing and so does life!
Adrian "Ted" Probart
Shelli’s grandpa, Ted, and his son David, her uncle, were both architects. It was her Grandpa who taught her the art of a firm handshake in business. While it is obviously about making firm contact with the opposing hand and eyes, it is really more about showing another person that they mean something to you and you take them seriously. Shelli enjoys that exchange with others and has made that her Modus Operandi. Serving others is her personal motivator.
Where We Began
After graduating from the University of Idaho in Dec. 1996, Shelli, her husband, John and daughters, Molly and Emily, lived in beautiful resort towns for twelve years. In the Fall of 2009, she moved from areas like Ketchum, ID and Jackson, WY, back to Northern Idaho. Then in 2012 Mittmann Architect PLLC was formed and grew in Shelli’s home office. Then, in December 2015, she was blessed to build out her current office space, on 4th Street, in “Mid Town” Coeur d’Alene, Idaho – where all the excitement continues!
