“Make it Matter” — a principle HDG was founded on— this is how HDG approaches every client, every design decision, every meeting. Life is short and design matters too much.

Launched in 2010 by Josh Hissong and Armando Hurtado, a couple of guys with incredible design acumen and certain iconoclastic streaks, HDG is an architecture and design studio based in Spokane, WA that firmly believes the spaces people live and work in have the power to transform our experience.

They’ve since built it person by person with co-workers that have the same love for the craft into a firm that listens carefully to their clients and leads with invention and insight.

Frequently cited as an up-and-coming firm in the pacific northwest, their designs can be found in places like Seattle, Oahu, New York and Pennsylvania; to name a few. (and rural Washington and Idaho).

Great design is a product of deep insight and hard work -- and our team of architects, interior designers, graphic designers and branding experts are poised to take on your project.
