The two newest additions to the Allied8 team are so awesome that we are going to use their middle names as an alias to ensure no one steals them. No, but seriously – how cool are those middle names?
Paul Costello Bilger and Sarah Bisignano Zamler
All kidding aside, in the 6 months since Paul and Sarah have joined Allied8 we have catapulted forward with new skills and project types. We are now fully functioning in Revit and Maxwell, allowing for heightened project efficiency and visualization. And stay tuned for our google cardboard experience, as we delve into a virtual reality presentation.
Sarah “Bisignano” hails from Michigan where in high school she led their lacrosse team to a state championship. In 2014, she received her Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Michigan (Go Wolverines!). After graduating she moved to Seattle hoping to find a collaborative firm. We are lucky she found us.
Sarah already has experience working in residential design and now with Allied8, is branching out into multifamily and small commercial projects. She has already busted out: a 14-unit apartment building in the City of Shoreline, a wicked cool carport, two second-story additions and some beautiful 3d models. On top of it, she can slay any software! She’s our secret IT weapon.

Paul “Costello” hails from St Louis, Missouri where in 2009, he led the University of Missouri architecture team to design and build an off the grid home for the 2009 solar decathlon (see project here). Paul is passionate about sustainability. He received his Master of Architecture at University of Maryland in 2011, and then worked in Baltimore for 4 years. In 2015 he moved to Seattle looking for new opportunities in architecture and environmental sustainability.
Paul’s expert knowledge of Revit and his creative problem solving abilities have already helped us navigate our largest projects: a 34-unit apartment building in North Seattle and a 16-unit adaptive reuse of the Columbia City Church. He’s blown through a couple rolls of trace that are covered with little gems like this!
Costello Bisignano, we are so happy you have joined us.
