Hill & Hurtt Architects was founded in 2016 by Joshua Hill and Eric Hurtt with a focus on thoughtfully designed homes, integrating sensitivity to scale and context, attention to detail and craft, and current construction techniques and building standards. A client-focused, collaborative process is a key component of our work.
Our portfolio includes new construction, additions, restorations, and renovations, and has garnered awards from Remodeling Magazine, the American Institute of Architects, and the Institute of Classical Art and Architecture.
