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 50 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.

We wanted to tell you what a magnificent house you designed. We love everything about it. The light, the lines, the feeling one has in every room of being part of this gorgeous environment.

Boho Beach Shack in the Making…

Recently, I’ve had the pleasure of working on a modern beach shack for our world traveling client and her vibrant, eclectic spirit. She wanted a summer home with vibrant textures, colors, and patterns that would remind her of places she has visited along the way, while maintaining an overall casual atmosphere suited for Martha’s Vineyard. We looked to evoke the essence of her global experiences – whether an elephant safari, an Alpine train ride, or collecting ikebana baskets in Japan – through our material and furnishing selections.

Bamboo Benefits

As natural disasters and political and economic instability have displaced millions of people globally in recent years, many are in urgent need of feasible and eco-friendly design solutions for temporary housing. I traveled to Colombia for the purpose of training in traditional bamboo construction and to gain a better understanding of assembly systems that might be practical, reproducible, and adaptable anywhere in the world.

Thanksgiving, Cramer style…

As the weather turns toward winter, checking the outdoor thermometer takes priority upon waking in preparation for adding more layers, and my anticipation of Thanksgiving grows quickly! After all,  it is my favorite holiday – sure, the the travel can be a nightmare but once we get past that and settle into our destination, the warmth of this holiday so rich with meaning takes over.
