With Philip Johnson in the Glass House
New Canaan, Connecticut 1979
In addition to being a builder, Mr. Hunter is also a furniture designer with an extensive wood and metal shop. Although this shop is purely for self-indulgence, each project has informed his understanding of the proper use and application of materials, tools, finishes, and joinery, which is reflected in our construction documents and ability to manage projects.
Finally Mr. Hunter has immense respect for the artisans that fabricate his designs. "you can learn something from just about everyone on the job site if you take the time to listen and discuss" This appreciation has provided an ongoing education that is also reflected in our designs and management style.

Mr. Hunter established and has maintained Keith Hunter & Associates, Architect since 1986 after being mentored by several of America's finest architects including Philip Johnson. Throughout the years Mr. Hunter has had the opportunity to work on just about every building type ranging in scale from the United Bank Center (now Wells Fargo Bank) in Denver, Colorado, a 52 story Office Building with a glass enclosed Winter Garden (at the time, the largest glass enclosed structure in the world) to a fairly unique Garden Shed in Ashland, Virginia, and complexity from sophisticated medical facilities that include MRI, CT Scans, and X-ray Fluoroscopy technology to a simple layout for a doctor's office. He has designed over a hundred residential projects including new homes, renovations, additions, and outbuildings, many having been featured in magazines, most recently in Boomer Magazine and Better Homes and Gardens.
Each of these unique projects is approached with a deliberate creative and pragmatic personal design process that yields functional architecture, and carefully addresses existing conditions, budgetary constraints, and aesthetics. The individual requirements of each project has brought insight to the next, for example, his involvement in the acoustic design of Wolf Trap Performing Arts Center has given him a better understanding for the application of acoustic design principles to all of his projects.
Mr. Hunter is "hands on"; he is a Class 'A' Licensed General Contractor and President of England Street Construction whose work is featured on this website. His experience as a builder provides valuable insight to the complex requirements and difficulties experienced by contractors both residential and commercial. This understanding allows Keith Hunter & Associates, Architect to provide the highest quality architectural services to our clients and their builders, helping to keep projects on schedule, on budget, and built to the highest standards.
