Introducing Hopkins Clegg Architects

And our Founder—Kristin Hopkins-Clegg

About Us

Hopkins Clegg Architects is a full-service architecture firm founded on a deep understanding of what makes a home sustainable, personal, and exceptional.

From historic homes with a rich and layered past to modern custom homes, we specialize in personalization and collaboration—with exceptional support and communication from the pre-planning stage to the final touches. We offer an insider’s attention to detail, two decades of experience, and close connections to local historic preservation commissions, zoning, and building departments.

We often work at the intersection of a delicate balance: crafting sustainable spaces within the boundaries of historic preservation or creating new homes that elevate their environments. New or old, your home’s history is only one part of its story–you get to craft its future.

Founder Kristin Hopkins Clegg was educated at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design and Certified by Cornell’s Sustainable Preservation program—bringing best-in-class theory and practice to every project.

“Kristin took the time to understand what was most important to us and was very intentional with making sure those items were delivered.”
