Review this Business/Team

Richard Hughes ArchitectRichard Hughes knows that every project is unique. He works closely with clients to interpret their personal needs in order to maximize the features of each site. His carefully considered designs integrate traditional architectural principles with modern innovations to accommodate contemporary lifestyles. From simple to major architectural projects, his goal is to create functional and beautiful living spaces, both indoors and out. Richard graduated from the Roger Williams School of Architecture and launched his career on the east coast before beginning his post-professional degree program at the University of Texas at Austin. He started his own Austin firm in 2001 after working with several local architects and actively participates in the city's Green Builder Program.

In 2011 Richard along with four other Austin architects formed a new practice calling itself Element 5 Architects. Richard will continue to work on similar projects as in the past but now will also be able to take on larger projects.

Richard did a wonderful job designing a remodel for our little Hyde Park area house that was built in 1939. When we bought the place, it truly was falling apart. People thought we were crazy to remodel, but with Richard's design we were able to save it and make it livable, cute and comfortable. He also designed an addition to the house which took into account two large pecan trees and the flood plain. On both the remodel and the addition, he designed within our budget and made it possible to get a more high-end look and feel within our constraints. He really listened to what we wanted and needed. Also, Richard was super knowledgeable about the city of Austin building code restrictions and even brought an arborist out early on so we knew exactly what we needed to do with regard to the trees on our property. So five stars for a great experience that ended with us getting exactly what we needed and wanted.
