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.
