For more than 30 years, the team at Hutker Architects has been helping families and individuals create one-of-a-kind homes in New England. Our process begins with listening. We work together to create a program of indoor and outdoor spaces that will best support the way you live, work, and play.

We begin each project by learning about the particulars of the site and the priorities of the individuals who will live in the house. From there, we establish desired life patterns and work to create spaces that make the most of a home’s unique location while creating spaces that support and anticipate our clients’ lives today and in the future.

Hutker Architects has designed more than three hundred houses along the New England shore and beyond. The firm is committed to the principle “build once, well,” looking to the historic architecture of the region as inspiration for original, contemporary design.

Hutker Architects is a team of 36 professionals who share a belief that houses are the most important structures people occupy. Our team is passionate about design and committed to harnessing our individual talents toward a common goal: years of happy homecomings for every client. We continue to be inspired by the unique challenge of creating a place that feels like “home” for each client. We look forward to coming to work every day.

We are privileged to live and work in a special place. Hutker Architects recognizes the importance of participating in the unique communities of which we are a part. Stewardship is one of our firm’s core values. The ethic of giving back starts with designing houses that complement their surroundings and extends to being good neighbors ourselves. We are proud to partner with organizations that are improving the communities we serve, and honored to donate time as a team and as individuals.

Greg Ehrman named Principal
01.11.2016

Hutker Architects is pleased to announce the promotion of Greg Ehrman to the role of Principal.  Greg received both his bachelor of arts and his master of architecture from Northeastern University, joining Hutker Architects as a designer in 2000. Since that time, he has gained a thorough understanding of Hutker’s culture from the ground up, made significant design contributions, and developed the tools necessary to effectively lead and mentor a dynamic team.

Greg’s passion for innovative design and building science has helped to push the firm forward with a number of progressive and award-winning projects that are in harmony with the vernacular architecture of coastal New England.

A recent project, Grey Barn Farm, exemplifies this synergy. This year-round home on a working, organic, 86-acre farm is designed to resemble an old barn retrofitted for modern living. Through careful land stewardship & thoughtful use of technology, the project is a model for a sustainable community. The residence has been featured in Architectural Digest, Boston Home, and Lonny magazine.

In addition to being a talented designer, Greg is an energetic advocate for clients throughout the construction process, and has been influential in advancing environmental and energy benchmarks within the firm. Notably, he has been central to the development of Hutker’s first “Zero Net Energy Building”, which will be certified by the Passive House Institute of the United States later this year. In recognition of his exceptional professional accomplishments, Greg received one of New England Home’s 5 Under 40 awards in 2014.

Greg also lends his energy and imagination to his community. He recently spearheaded design, fundraising, and community building efforts for the Niantic Park Playground Project in Oak Bluffs, MA. The project has created more than 9,000 square feet of interactive play space for children.

Introducing our new brand identity
09.21.2015

Can lines and angles tell a story? At Hutker Architects, we think so.

For more than 30 years, we have been designing structures with narrative in mind.

Each house – each new arrangement of shapes – spins a tale unique to its people, time, and place.

We approached our new company logo in the same way. Like the bones of a house, we chose sans serif letters that are strong, elegant, and timeless. Like elements of craft and carpentry that personalize a home, we developed serifs and crossbars that reflect the traditions we embrace, while creating a sense of forward movement. The “rooms” between each letter are dynamic and spacious, encouraging circulation around graceful forms.

The graphite hue is a nod to pencil sketches at the heart of our design process, while the bold orange speaks to the innovation and excitement that propels us from one project to the next.

A custom set of marks with a personality all its own, we think it tells our story well.
