Our Story


Introspecs is a tight-knit team of designers with diverse skills and backgrounds. We love working together, learning from each other, and learning from our clients.

Allisen Larsen

Allisen is the founder and Principal Designer of Introspecs and her combination of right- and left-brain skills keeps everything humming along. She loves using her creativity, intuition and practical insights to shape space and connect with people.

Allisen grew up in Michigan + Oregon and attended architecture school at the University of Oregon where she specialized in Interior Architecture. Launching Introspecs was one of her best decisions ever! When not designing or meeting with clients, Allisen enjoys a good game of ping pong, yoga, and as much world travel as she can manage.

Erik Smith

Erik moved to Portland in 2016 after graduating with a degree in Interior Design. Erik is the guy who always knows just what to say to keep the conversation moving in the right direction. Add a spot-on design sense to this profound knack for connecting with people and you’ve got a powerful combination.

Erik may look young, but rest assured, he’s an old soul with lots of wisdom + insight. Erik is passionate about biking, exploring the city with his lovely wife and hitting up local venues for live music.

Scott Cummings

Scott sometimes gets so excited about new ideas that he interrupts himself. This comes with the territory of having many passions and being deeply knowledgeable. Scott brings skills and experience in ideation, fabrication details and project management to Introspecs.

In addition to his work with Introspecs, Scott is also an expert metal worker and the founder of Base Modern, makers of simple, modern, handcrafted home objects + décor. You can find Scott spending time with his 2 daughters, sipping on his 4th cup of coffee or enjoying a great saison beer.


Introspecs has been designing whole houses, ADUs, commercial spaces, kitchens, and baths since 2006. We’ve grown from a one-woman show to a dedicated and tight knit team. We love creating modern designs for real people. While we’re focused on aesthetics we’re deeply committed to human context. In other words, we always look for solutions that will work beautifully and stand the test of time, not just look good when the project wraps.

Introspecs is a woman-owned business with offices in the WeWork building, located in the former US Customs House in the Pearl District.
