Diego Gutierrez works collaboratively with his clients to understand and bring alive their ultimate architectural vision for living and work spaces. To each of his projects, he brings the principles of sustainable design, green construction and environmental awareness, and the results of his work are found throughout the Berkshires and Great Barrington, Mass., nearby New York state, and Northwestern Connecticut.
Born in Bogota, Colombia, he immigrated to New York City at age of nine, attended high school in Manhattan, and graduated in 1987 from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY, with a Bachelor in Architecture. He worked for various architectural firms in New York until moving to the Berkshires in 2000. Now in his own practice, he works on a wide range of residential and commercial projects in the tri-state area.
Diego’s love of architecture extends to education: he teaches children about the art and science of architecture through various design workshops at local schools, libraries and community centers. His workshops have been funded partly through grants from the Berkshire Taconic Foundation and the Boston Foundation for Architecture. He is also on staff at Flying Cloud Institute, a year-round educational arts and sciences camp serving children and teens.
Diego lives in Housatonic, Massachusetts, a village in the Town of Great Barrington. He has been a member of various local committees, including the Energy Committee, which was instrumental in gaining state designation for Great Barrington as a “Green Community.” He has been a member of the Steering Committee of Friends of the Great Barrington Libraries, an all volunteer group dedicated to supporting and promoting the libraries in Great Barrington. He is assisting the Parks Committee of Great Barrington in developing a Master Plan for the Housatonic Village Green.
