HTK Architects, founded in 1958, remains one of the best architecture firms in the region due in large part to our clients and our culture. We have learned over many years that culture matters as it’s the “Lifeline of the Company.” It has become the foundation of our Practice. “Culture” is the beliefs, behaviors, objects, and characteristics that our People share. These values, core principles, and ideals are why our entire organization and family of staff exist.

Integrity, Intentional, and Impact and their associated meanings have become the framework and language we use as a filter for essential decisions and solutions to challenges.  Our Core Values are Integrity, Intentional, and Impact.

It benefits our People by:

  • Attracting Better Talent
  • Retaining Talent with Long-term team members
  • Company Loyalty

As a company, they serve as:

  • Identity + Recognition
  • Strong Chemistry
  • Sense of Belonging
  • Clear Beliefs + Values

The HTK family embarked on a workshop + team building day to explore our culture and define our beliefs and ideals representing our “Core Values.”  They are vital to us and explain who we are and what we are about.  HTK Architects are thrilled to share these with you, and we expect everyone to hold us accountable to our culture as these are the principles and priorities to the foundation of our Practice.

Reach out to us and experience the Integrity, Intentionality, and Impact that we bring to every client, opportunity, and challenge we take on.
