    Our Story


    Introspecs is a woman-owned business celebrating collaborative relationships with our design + build community here in the Pacific Northwest.

    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.

    Scott Cummings

    Team Operations

    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 commercial spaces, whole houses, ADUs, custom kitchens and baths since 2006. We’ve grown from a one-woman show to a dedicated + tight knit team. After 2 years of living abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark, Allisen is back in Portland actively helping clients to improve their daily lives through clever space planning + calming aesthetics.

    We love creating modern designs for real people. While we’re focused on aesthetics, we’re deeply committed to human context + client-responsive design. In other words, we always look for solutions that will uniquely function for our clients and stand the test of time.
