An architecture aimed at environmental needs of a specific region is by definition the local dialect or vernacular. Yet the over 200 homes that Hutker Architects, Inc., has hand-crafted avoid a single style. What has been constant across these projects is the life equity principle that underlies the client-architect dialogue.
The 21 projects featured in this book illustrate a diverse and new regional vernacular architecture. They provide for the home owner's long term needs, both physical and psychological, use materials best suited to the spaces needed, and accommodate ever-changing family arrangements. And they fit their clients so well, that they are rarely sold outside the families that built them. Indeed, whether small or large, these homes are treated as heirlooms by their owners, to be preserved and handed down to the next generation.
