Erin supports the team at Robert Hidey Associates from concept through construction. “Trends toward multi-generational design are holding strong in the industry,” said Erin. “We are currently designing optional living suites, “lock-offs” and extra bedrooms. For young homebuyers, the trend is toward loft-style living and higher density developments with walkability and a variety of amenities.”

“I think the future of architecture will always respond to the cultural and global issues we are facing,” said Erin. “Our designs will continue to utilize new technologies in green efficiency and work with “smart” systems to integrate the architecture with indoor environmental controls, security and entertainment.”

Raised in Orange County, Erin earned her Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Design from the University of Colorado, Boulder.
