Founded on the idea that there had to be a better way of practicing architecture, +HoyStarkHagan Architects (+HSHA) was started in 2006 with the fundamental belief that design is a service - a philosophy that can be found in everything we do.
We now employ 10 people - three licensed architects, a graduate in interior design pursuing a masters in architecture, a graduate architect pursuing registration, three students in architecture, an office controller and a student working his way through college in pursuit of a literary degree. It is an office of professionals and that is by no accident – Principals Pat, Monty, and Erika recognized that employing very smart and very talented people would make them a stronger firm. Everyone employed at +HSHA has the opportunity to one day own part of the company. As an all-inclusive practice, all employees have a seat at the table.
The American Institute of Architects Florida (AIA Florida) recognized +HSHA as the Firm of the Year in 2017. The selecting jury commented that +HoyStarkHagan "embodies design, community services, education, and service to AIA in a very strong manner...[the firm] is always there when there is a need for advocacy and their involvement in the community is very strong.”
