Our Firm The firm was founded in 1978 by Tom Hatch, FAIA, with a commitment to help build strong, vibrant communities.
It has evolved over several decades from its sole-
proprietorship beginnings to its current partnership structure when, in 2006, Erik Ulland and Randall Owen joined him as partners. Our keen sense of community values has inspired a wide range of distinctive projects including: 65 Whole Foods Markets across the country, including the original Corporate Headquarters at 6th Lamar; The Crossings (now Travaasa Experiential Resort and Spa); Threadgill’s; Thundercloud Subs; Twin Oaks Library; McKinney Roughs Nature Park; Mueller Community Homes; and most recently Antone’s, Homestead Oaks Apartments and Learning Center, The Groves Information Center and Oak Point Park Nature and Retreat Center. Whether public or private, we favor timeless projects designed with an eye, not on the latest architectural trend or signature style, but on the special needs of our clients and the community at large. As active members of Austin’s “Green Building” program, we are keenly aware of environmental issues and strive to create buildings that enhance the health and well being of both the earth and its inhabitants. We were the architects for Austin’s first large scale, commercial “green” building – the first Whole Foods Market and Corporate Headquarters at 6th and Lamar. All of our projects are guided by the ethical and far-reaching applications of sustainability. The images in this book demonstrate an abbreviated look at some of our projects, in particular, restaurants, bars, cafes and a few photos of the some of the 66 Whole Foods Markets we have designed nationwide.
INTERIOR DESIGN Creating space is about balance. By balancing the needs of the client with the requirements of the building, we can craft environments that respect both the desired aesthetic vision and functional needs. We approach each project with a fresh perspective, yet we draw from a broad base of experience and recognition founded in respecting our clients’ objectives, schedule and budget as well as the environment. Whether our clients are commercial office tenants, local restaurateurs or retailers, we create environments that embody their individual brand.
CREATING THE RIGHT ‘FEEL’ FOR YOUR RESTAURANT, BAR, OR CAFÉ All of the elements of the design and layout should represent the goals and concept of the business. Because the menu, clientele, and price points should all support the layout of the restaurant to create a single concept, designing restaurant spaces requires a strong collaboration between the architect and the client. h+uo makes every effort to listen and fully understand our client’s needs before interpreting and bringing these ideas to life. With this approach, we have not only built restaurants and bars of which we are proud to have been a part, but we have also built long term relationships. Our list of repeat clients includes restaurateurs and business owners connected with local establishments like Threadgill’s, Thundercloud Subs, J. Black’s and Whole Foods. Other restaurants and bars include: Scholz Garten, Wahoo’s on South Congress, Sampaio’s, Lakeside Pizza & Grill, Club One15, Proof, Fuego, and Hardtails Bar & Grill. Our most recent projects include a tenant improvement for the second location of Houndstooth Coffee in the Frost Bank Tower on Congress Avenue; a complete interior and exterior renovation of a 6,000 square-foot former Bennigan’s Restaurant into a new urban dining and cocktail lounge, Foxhole Culinary Tavern; a renovation of Verde's Round Rock, and the design/build for the Austin icon, Antone's. h+uo architects has developed our business around client-focused, responsible design. Let us bring our history and dedication to your next project.
