Mr. Wentworth commenced his architectural practice in 1986, working from his home, with a focus on residential remodeling in the Capitol Hill historic district of Washington, DC.

By the early 1990s Mr. Wentworth joined with a local contractor/business partner and together they implemented the architect-led design/build concept. After more than a decade of partnership Mr. Wentworth set off on his own to found Wentworth, Inc.

Design is and has been the primary focus of this studio from its beginning over twenty years ago. With projects ranging from 14,000 square foot residential to 1 square inch adornment, our intention is that design should clarify. Whether the solution is timeless or time-sensitive, all aspects of the process and product strive to explain the intent. Designs are most successfully realized when there is full participation and communication from the Design Team- the Owner, the Builder, and the Architect. Each brings their own expertise to the project that helps shape the final product. Design can elevate awareness and appreciation of any space. This is our intention.

Inspired by a shared interest in sustainable design and artfully crafted buildings, we established our practice in 2003. We bring a detail-oriented approach to building design, developed over three decades of professional practice working on a range of projects from large scale commercial and institutional buildings to private homes in Washington DC and the surrounding region. The focus of our practice is residential architecture. Whether a project involves a renovation, an addition to an existing building or new construction, we offer full architectural services at a highly personalized level. Our clients are central to the design process and we keep them continuously involved. Our approach is to foster a team approach in which all team members including us — from energy modelers to engineers, contractors to owners — are encouraged to be involved from the very beginning in order to make critical decisions about the materials, systems, and building technologies that form the basis for the design. We believe that this approach creates architecture which is integrated, holistic and innovative, while at the same time considerate of its environmental impact. While our work is devoted to a concern for space, light, order, and craft, it is guided by our commitment to environmental stewardship through responsible, inventive design and professional leadership. Environmental issues and architecture are intrinsically linked at every level and we believe that, as architects, we are positioned to provide leadership in environmental responsibility. For these reasons we have continuously grown our interest and knowledge base in sustainable design. We view a sustainable design approach as not only productive and essential to our profession of designing buildings, but fundamentally important to us as we contemplate what kind of world we will leave to our children.

At Hamilton Snowber Architects, we view the design and construction process as a creative collaboration between client, architect and builder to create homes to meet your physical, aesthetic and financial needs. From establishing your design program all the way to moving into your finished home, we provide personal and professional services that make the experience efficient and enjoyable. Cynthia Hamilton and Chris Snowber have worked with clients in the Washington metropolitan area, as well as other parts of the country (New England, Chesapeake Bay and Coastal Virginia, Midwest), to develop residential projects at a variety of scales and settings. With each project, we seek to develop solutions that respond to the specific needs of the client, site and surrounding context. To meet those needs, we employ the architectural language that is most appropriate, whether traditional, transitional, or more contemporary. We consider understanding the landscape - the yard, the street, the community, the region - an integral part of any design solution. Throughout the day, through the seasons, a house should interact with its setting in ways that inspire and delight. Environmentally responsible design leads us to seek solutions which limit a project’s impact through the use of green products and practices. In applying these principles, this means maximizing insulation and use of green materials, as well as seeking ways to employ alternative sources of energy, including geothermal, photovoltaic production of electricity and solar collectors for hot water. Potential Clients: To discuss your project and how we might help, please call Chris Snowber or Cynthia Hamilton.
