HUNTER PAUL COFFEY - AIA, NCARB

Hunter is a native of Boone, North Carolina. He received his undergraduate degree in Design from Clemson University, where he participated in the CAC program in Charleston, South Carolina and graduated with Senior Departmental Honors. His graduate work, culminating in the design of a Center for Appalachian Culture, earned Hunter a professional degree in Architecture from North Carolina State University.

His interest in design and travel led Hunter to pursue his architectural career in various places. Among those were architectural firms in London, England and Laufen, Switzerland. While living and working abroad, he traveled and studied architecture throughout Western Europe.

In 1995, Hunter moved to the North Carolina coast. He spent eleven years there, contributing to the growth and success of Wilmington-based Kersting Architecture and developing a portfolio of work focused on highly-crafted, custom residential and commercial design.

In 2006 Hunter returned to the North Carolina High Country to open a branch office and, in 2008, he purchased the office to establish Hunter Paul Coffey Architecture, PLLC. In addition to directing the architectural firm, Hunter also serves as an Adjunct Instructor in the Department of Sustainable Technology and the Built Environment at Appalachian State University, a community Architectural Review Board Consultant, and a volunteer with Watauga County Habitat for Humanity.

PHILOSOPHY 

Our firm’s primary mission is the pursuit of "good design.

Good design improves peoples’ lives.

 

Design’s fundamental responsibility is to provide solutions to problems. Good design provides meaningful solutions. It may offer a better way to do something. It may conserve resources. It may add tangible value, or it may solve a problem in a “poetic” way. Whatever our clients’ aspirations happen to be, we take great care to understand them and create designs that are specifically tailored to them.

Good design should be accessible.

 

Good design should not just be a luxury item. Rather, it should create the greatest value, given the resources available. As a result, we try to offer good design to the broadest audience possible, by making or services available to clients possessing varying degrees of resources and by seeking to, positively, influence our built environment both directly and indirectly.

Good design requires extra care.

 

We are fortunate to work with many clients who value good design and allow us to create exceptional pieces of architecture for them. To meet the desires of discerning clients, we take great care in our work. To fully develop our designs, we pursue a high level of detail and quality in our work. To ensure that our attention to quality and detail is successfully applied, we offer attentive service to our clients from project inception through the completion of construction.

Good design should shape as much of our environment as possible.

 

Our work doesn’t stop at the front door. While architecture is the foundation and focus of our practice, we see it as part of a broad spectrum of design opportunities. Therefore, we concern ourselves not just with our buildings but, also, the things that influence the use and experience of them. In addition to creating, what is traditionally considered, “architecture”, we offer a variety of services that are “related to architecture”.
