DHK Architects is an award-winning architecture and planning firm based in Boston, MA. For more than 40 years our successful designs have transformed communities and led innovation in multi-family housing, transportation, and public places and structures.


DHK Architects is dedicated to creating architecture that makes our cities better places in which to live and work. We design buildings and places that engage the public realm, revitalize neighborhoods, enhance the urban fabric and preserve its historic legacy.


We hold an unwavering commitment to our clients, to quality design, to cities and their diverse communities.

We have tremendous respect for the relationship between architect and client and the design process necessary to produce both a high quality design and meet the needs of the client. Many say this, but few achieve it.

We offer a steady, continually focused approach by professionals who bring a wealth of experience, and yet are inquisitive, open to listening and learning, and who never back down from a challenge.

Our team is comprised of smart, energetic professionals who are creative, yet detail oriented, efficient, and committed to delivering.

Our firm serves private and public clients. We design:

  • Multi-family housing including affordable housing, mixed-use and mixed-income developments, elderly and market rate housing as well as community planning.
  • Transportation projects including mass transit facilities tunnels, airports, intermodal stations, parking garages and maintenance facilities.
  • Public and community facilities for state, municipal and private clients. Much of this work involves the preservation of historic buildings that contribute to the lasting civic value of our cities.

DHK began as the Boston branch of a New York firm in 1978 and incorporated as a locally owned company in 1985. From its inception, DHK was associated with major transportation infrastructure projects including the historic preservation and reconstruction of South Station and the new Southwest Corridor Orange Line in Boston. In the following decades, DHK completed transportation projects in Maine, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York and San Juan, PR.

DHK’s dedication to affordable housing began with work in Boston’s minority neighborhoods and with local housing authorities in Massachusetts cities and towns. Over the years, DHK has prepared master plans and designed new and rehabilitated housing for communities in the Northeast, the Midwest and Puerto Rico.
