Hill & Hurtt Architects

Principals Joshua Hill, Eric Hurtt and Mary-Margaret Stacy strive to create warm, well-functioning homes that marry creative design solutions and a high level of craftsmanship.

The architects work closely with clients throughout the design process. As they usher a project from master plan to the final stages, the goal is to arrive at a thoughtful, carefully crafted solution that responds to a client’s specific goals and needs. “We love a new project that challenges us to examine underlying assumptions and helps owners discover an inherent opportunity that dramatically improves their home,” asserts Hurtt.

“While schematic design and design development allow us to communicate our ideas, it is during construction administration that design decisions and ideas are fully realized through a collaborative process that includes client, architect and general contractor,” Stacy explains.

The eight-person firm received a prestigious 2021 ICAA John Russell Pope Award for Residential Renovation and a 2021 AIA Potomac Valley award. And it recently completed a net-zero renovation/addition to a historic bungalow—one of the first homes in DC to achieve net-zero status through the DC Sustainable Energy Utility. “In our practice, we are often renovating 100-plus-year-old dwellings,” says Hill. “Breathing new life into these homes is the ultimate form of sustainability.”
