​​​​​​​​​​​​Dissimilar Metal Design is an architectural ​metals company based near Seattle, WA.  Our team designs and manufactures premium weatherized exterior facades, landscape elements, and interior wall systems from the best sources of natural metals. 

DMD began​ ​as a small ​metal workshop​ ​in Ballard and has now evolved into a leader in the facade market, having supplied built projects around the globe. ​ Drawing inspiration from the natural​ly occurring​ oxidation process found in nature, Dissimilar Metal Design accelerates ​and stabilizes ​the ​aging process that would typically take ​years ​to achieve a client's desired aesthetic. ​Taking an artist​ic​ method ensures ​completely unique ​creations and a truly collaborative approach. 

Today, Dissimilar Metal Design continues to expand ​our capabilities.  ​Our products​ and expertise​ have been used ​to construct some of the world’s most recognized structures such as the Barclays Center Arena in Brooklyn, the Leeum Samsung Museum of Art in Seoul, Korea, SYR Airport in Syracuse, NY and ​recently finished​ Chevron Campus in Texas.  We look forward to ​collaborating with you soon.
