About Elizabeth Hurtado:
Owner & Lead Designer, Assoc. AIA

Greetings! 

Welcome to a space where innovation, sustainability, and natural aesthetics converge to redefine the way we experience the places we call home.

 

HISTORY:

My journey began with a Master of Fine Arts from The University of North Texas in 2005, and for the next 17 years, I shared my love for art and design as a dedicated adjunct college professor. Driven by curiosity and a commitment to producing environmentally beneficial work, I eagerly embarked on a fresh chapter as my time in higher education neared its end. In 2017, I earned a Master of Architecture from The University of Texas at Arlington, equipping myself with the skills to bring artistic visions to life in three dimensions.

MISSION:

Today, my mission is clear: to craft non-toxic, earth-friendly, and carbon-smart custom homes for a diverse and eco-minded clientele. I believe in the power of design to enhance lives and respect the environment simultaneously. The homes I design are not just structures; they are reflections of a sustainable, aesthetic lifestyle.

My design philosophy is rooted in the belief that a home should not only be a sanctuary but also a harmonious extension of its natural surroundings. With this in mind, I focus on incorporating natural building materials that positively impact physical well-being, creating spaces that are not only visually appealing but also nurturing for the soul and body.

X-FACTOR:

As both an artist and an architectural designer, I bring a unique perspective to every project. It's not just about structures; it's about telling a story through design, capturing the essence of individuality, and creating homes that resonate with the people who inhabit them.

I invite you to explore the world of environmentally conscious and artistically inspired design with me. Let's embark on a journey to create spaces that not only stand the test of time but also contribute positively to the world we live in.

I look forward to hearing from you!
