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


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



In 2005, I earned a Master of Fine Arts from The University of North Texas. Subsequently, I dedicated myself to teaching art and design as an adjunct college professor. Driven by my passion for environmentally conscious work, I decided to pursue a new direction. In 2017, I obtained 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.


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. 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.


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!
