We are designers, builders, and innovators

Monsef Donogh Design Group is a small creative design studio located in Renton, Washington specializing in the residential design-build craft.

Our Mission

To create the highest quality homes from the ground up.

1. This means that we allow the building process to take an integrative role in our architectural work and make our design decisions based on experience.

2. Our buildings emerge from their location. We take time to study the site, environment, character, and constructability of a home before putting pencil to paper. As each building location is distinctive, each home design is unique.

3. We understand that the value of a new home comes from its craftsmanship and livability. At MDDG, we stay inspired by the small details of a home that make it stand apart from the rest.

Donogh Construction

Scott comes from a family background of home building in the state of Washington that spans three generations of excellence. His father’s company Donogh Construction began in 1962. Scott worked as a skilled laborer and a supervisor for his father for over 15 years. Later working with his brother Ryan, he ran a successful home building operation, building high end homes in the Renton area. In 2005 Scott started his own company, Scott Donogh Homes, which has flourished over the past ten years.

A New Vision

In 2009 Paul did some architectural renderings for Scott. After that Scott was so impressed by Paul’s work, that in 2010 he had him design his own personal residence.
