Our vision is to create inspired architecture drawn from the ideas of many.

Our team will compile the project’s inherent goals, needs and values through an in-depth interview process with the client, their staff and the surrounding community.


Architectural Design is the simple essence of a project, brought to formality through the work and skills of the Architect. Our design brings the client’s vision to reality as we work to understand their aspirations and needs for the project.


We work closely with the client, consultants and applicable jurisdictions to provide test-studies for proposed projects. This exercise will typically yield the design limitations and opportunities for any given site or project and acts as the springboard for design.


Sustainable design is a cornerstone of our practice and will typically inform decisions on building placement, use of existing materials and elements of a site, and size and scale of a project. We have successfully navigated several sustainability-first projects.


Our Master Planning process will dive into the restrictions and limitations of a property to determine what opportunities are available. These metrics will provide the basic envelope of a development concept and be critical to a successful planning exercise.


We provide an in-depth analysis of a facility or group of facilities with regards to design direction, re-use of existing elements, code implications, historic significance, construction methods in place and existing materials.

Kris Swanson / Project Engineer

"There were several reasons why we believed that HCA were the right fit as the architects for our new campus – creative talent, education design experience, and a commitment to an inclusive process. Their collaborative process helped galvanize support for the project, which made the capital campaign a much easier sell. And it also resulted in a beautiful, highly-functional campus that met all of our program requirements and is the pride of our entire community.”

Bronson Dorsey / Director of Facilities and Former Trustee, Girls' School of Austin

"As a 5-phased project involving major additions and renovations to an occupied high school, there were certainly challenges. The manner in which address these challenges allowed for a smooth transition between phases and a timely and successful completion of the project as a whole."

Craig Estes, Architect / Project Manager

"With your efforts, we were able to complete the Balcones Medical Office Building on schedule and have some budget latitude for some much-needed architectural features on the building and landscaping."
