While working on my recent post about Phillip Johnson’s Glass House I found myself thinking about Mark Hutker. Then a post card from his office arrived in the mail announcing their inclusion in Residential Architecture’s “Short List of Architects We Love”. (November/December 2010) As an interior designer I believe that a space plan/floor plan whose order is simple and clear with good proportions will translate into an elegant architectural solution that can be lived in and enjoyed by a family for years. Mark has a knack for designing homes that do just that. Then he wraps them in yummy exteriors that reflect the essence of a region’s culture, vernacular and materials.
In addition to this recent recognition, “Heirlooms to Live In”, a compilation of his work was published this Fall. Well done, Mark!
