About Our Studio

Hopkins Architecture consists of a mother-daughter team who have joined their skills together to tackle issues of sustainability and liveability and design a better world.


We enjoy working in collaboration with the client and the team of design, building, and engineering consultants throughout the  process. We encourage clients to share their needs, their desires, and their practical requirements. The result is a project that fully satisfies the owners’ goals in creating a building that is unique for them, their site, and their needs.  We take great pride in crafting our clients’ dreams. We are delighted to say that they have many repeat clients and excellent references.
