Seattle-based Hutchison & Maul Architecture was founded by Robert Hutchison and Tom Maul in 2001. Exploring space and form through the medium of envelope, Hutchison & Maul’s designs are characterized by site-specific solutions which encompass functionality and efficiency through the use of a limited material palette, and a focus on one or two primary architectural elements. The firm performs work at all scales, from small art studios and residences to large institutional buildings and conceptual master plans. The firm also actively undertakes conceptual and installation work, which typically seeks to celebrate the history and past use of existing buildings, while highlighting their architectural qualities and potential for reuse. Hutchison & Maul is one of eight firms selected as a “2009 Emerging Voice” by the Architectural League of NY.
