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.

Welcome to the world as seen through our eyes... A world where “what is” is easily replaced with “what could be”, where the interior mingles generously with the exterior, where light & air rule the day while cozy is persuaded to play nicely with spacious. We are as interested in the people and lifestyles that our designs shelter as the structures themselves. We believe that your space should adapt to your life, not the other way around. Home-Place-Making is our passion. It’s what we do. Our job is to take your dreams of home and create them, better than you ever thought possible. Architect Mollie Ackner graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1999 with a Masters in Architecture. SoliDeo Design Studio PLLC, founded in 2003, is a full-service Residential Architecture firm based in North Carolina, with experience in the design of Custom Homes, Passive Solar Techniques, Green Building technologies, Additions, Renovations, & Interior Design.

Barbara Richter, AIA established Richter-Norton Architecture, PLLC in January of 2009, which has focused primarily on residential renovation and additions. “Bloom where you’re planted comes to mind when I think about renovation. In your home, you know how you live; you’ve placed your furniture and then you work around your house or work against your house. How your house could work much better for you is where your architect comes in. Architects are uniquely trained to translate design issues issues into form." Barbara takes pride in solving problems and finding a beautiful solution. Her ultimate goal is to get at the heart of the home. Barbara enjoys working with and getting to know her clients, listening to their concerns, thinking “outside the box” and working closely with the client and the contractor to create architectural solutions.

A North Carolina-based, Sustainable Design/Builder for all your quality, custom-home remodeling needs. Expert builders and fine artist team performing innovative, energy efficient, and affordable Green Construction for over 25 years. Solar Wind Designs (SWD) specifies green/sustainable, energy efficient building techniques in the design phase of each project. The basic requirement for any device or building technique has been that any additional cost above standard construction must be paid back in a period of 4-5 years or less. SWD has been involved in building and installing these devices and techniques from the business’ inception, over 20 years ago. Specifications are optimized for low toxicity, sustainability, lifecycle costs, recycled content, local source of origin, and inherent energy efficiency. We use “closed loop: sustainable building practices. The ideal is to create a near zero-waste supply chain that completely reuses, recycles, or composts all materials. Materials salvaged during the demolition phase are routinely recycled back into new construction whenever possible. Water based low toxin finishes, caulks, adhesives, paints and stains are used routinely by SWD in all phases of construction. Veneered plywoods are green or sustainably sourced to avoid toxic outgassing and ensure products come from verified sustainable forests. SWD strives to ensure that its products and projects have the lowest environmental impact possible. When selecting materials for SWD’s cabinet shop, the “greenest” products are always prioritized. SWD performs high end residential remodeling and built-in cabinetry for mid-range prices. We now also specialize in furniture restoration, custom furniture design and fabrication, and fine furniture finishes. SWD’s clients are always impressed by the superior quality they receive for the cost.

Founded in 1999, Ellen Cassilly Architect is an architectural design firm specializing in intelligent design that fosters vibrant urban communities. Our design work includes renovation, new construction, adaptive reuse (upfitting older buildings for new uses), and urban infill (new building design that compliments surrounding architecture). We believe that smart urban design should focus on individual buildings and spaces and the impact each has on the surrounding community. We design to inspire connections between people, community and the environment. We place a high priority on creating walk-able urban neighborhoods that minimize sprawl, preserve natural open spaces and attract lifelong residents while simultaneously protecting the environment. Whenever possible, we use recycled or low embodied energy materials and reuse buildings with existing connections to the urban infrastructure. Abundant natural light, sight lines through rooms and views outside are hallmarks of our designs. Good site planning allows us to create buildings that are climatically comfortable as well as energy efficient. Our goal is to help our clients transform their creative vision into homes, buildings and landscapes they love to live in. We welcome your ideas and input throughout the design process.
