Business Description
Hutch Johnson has had a passion for design since he was 5 years old. Drawing inspiration from everything and everyone around him, he decided to make a career of it. Hutch graduated cum laude from the School of Design at North Carolina State University in 1980 with a Bachelor of Environmental Design in Architecture. He went on to complete a professional degree with a Bachelor of Architecture from the School of Design in 1984. He established WHJ Design, Inc., in 1988.

Specializing in Residential Design, Hutch’s approach to any project is client-centered. He makes it a priority to listen to individual wants and needs, and finds a way to best incorporate them into an immensely creative, practical and aesthetically pleasing design. Always happy to offer advice, Hutch makes sure he’s meeting the goals of his client rather than his own.

While the majority of work he does is in North Carolina, Hutch has also worked on many projects up and down the east coast, from Florida to the coast of Maine. He’s always willing to work on projects at any location, on any terrain — from the mountains to the coast and the flatland in between.

Custom-tailored residential design of utmost quality. Projects of all sizes from small to large scale new construction, additions, and renovations.
