In 1977, HCM was founded with the goal of providing the highest quality architectural, landscape architectural and planning services to our clients. Since our founding, we firmly believe in a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach to problem solving. We have since reunited and redefined ourselves by sharing experiences and staff across studios. Although we have grown to a 200 person firm, we still maintain our small firm values and philosophy. HCM has a diverse studio environment with award-winning residential, healthcare, education, landscape architecture and planning departments to serve the diverse needs of our clients. We strive for the highest quality design which will, through the clarity of ideas and sensitivity to the environment, produce a compelling project. We integrate our client’s financial, functional and aesthetic goals into buildings, landscapes and land plans that will be a delight to the end user. HCM is dedicated to creating a lasting legacy for our clients and in turn, inspires us to create compelling places that contribute to the surrounding community, complete existing places or start new ones. To that end, we recognize that good design equates to good value on multiple levels including financial, social and environmental. We the architects, landscape architects and planners at HCM believe in the creation of meaningful places. The notion of "place" transcends throughout our studios in that we strive to create places to live, places to heal, places to learn or places to play. The planning of places collectively, form the basis for everyday civic life. We draw our inspiration from the fundamental understanding that humans connect with places they clearly and empathetically understand. We recognize that places we create have an obligation to value our coexistence with the environment. We embrace sustainability through innovation and our commitment to a holistic design project.
