HMH Architecture + Interiors celebrates its 35th anniversary this year and we’re incredibly grateful to our incredibly dedicated staff, open-minded clients, expert consultants, high-caliber contractors and many others that made our firm what it is today. To commemorate this milestone we sat down with Harvey to talk about the firm’s past, present, and future. Check out the timeline below to get a glimpse of the firm’s 35-year history.

In the spring of 1989, Harvey Hine – with great hesitation – left his job at W.C. Muchow and Partners and hung out his shingle for the first time as head of his own firm. That year, movies like Honey, I Shrunk the Kids were playing in theaters, while “Cheers” was one of the most popular TV shows and songs like U2’s “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” ruled the radio waves. Thankfully Harvey found what he was looking for. He built his firm to last, and befitting the jeweler he is on weekends, over time he started adding gems, joined by Leah Civiok and Stephanie Bingham and recently Lindsay Beukhof, Kristin Nothwehr and Lauren Folkerts.

Half of all American small businesses, including architecture firms, do not survive five years. Starting a firm coming out of the early-Eighties recession, without a big network of contacts, Harvey’s odds might have been even greater. Yet, the studio has spent three and a half decades designing homes and commercial buildings with timeless aesthetics and happy occupants. That the firm is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year is the ultimate testament. To Harvey and HMH, cheers are indeed in order, as well as a look back.


HMH Founded

Harvey M. Hine founds an architecture firm in Boulder, Colorado and calls it “Harvey M. Hine Architects”

Lindrose Residence

The Lindrose Residence was job number 001. The project was a poptop of a house built (not very well) over many years by vocational students. Our job was to unify a disjointed building.

Eating Salad Was A Lot Cooler In The ’80s

HMH designed a chain of seven Salad Company restaurants. The chain specialized in a build-your-own salad bar, along with a soup buffet. Looking back, most fun of all is the Miami Vice color scheme, using a combination of bright and muted pastels with added pops of pink!


White Residence

The White Residence was the first job designed using CADD. It was also the first large job taken by the firm. The 15,000 square foot house was designed using local materials and has a timeless quality. Thirty years later the house is as beautiful as when it was built.

15th Street Office Building

The 15th Street Office Building was HMH’s first venture into larger commercial projects. The 30,000 square foot building was custom designed for a Law Firm who owned the building.


Award Winner

Design Concepts

A mixed use building in a vernacular style, this building won the local newspaper’s People’s Choice Award. One resident claimed that the building had been there for many years prior and should not be getting the award.

Jessor / Menken Residence

When Dick Jessor approached HMH to build his home, he requested a Richard Meier-style house. In the same way that Richard Meier did his interpretation of modernism, this is the Harvey Hine version.


Award Winner

Pearl Street Lofts

This mixed-use, urban infill project included the addition of eight residential lofts above remodeled commercial space on the ground level in downtown Boulder, Colorado.

Lodo Optical

Located in an old industrial urban “loft” in Denver, the interiors were designed with an industrial modern aesthetic, which blends with the building and surrounding neighborhood.


Rosenthal / Friedlander Home

When HMH was hired to design this home, Diane Rosenthal quoted Phillip Johnson’s definition of good architecture: ‘Does it make me cry when I step in?’ That’s how we approached the design.


AIA Architect of the Year

Harvey Hine was awarded the “Architect of the year, 2006” by the American Institute of Architects, Colorado North Chapter. The award was presented October 6th at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park during the AIA North Chapter Award’s Gala.

IIDA Rocky Mountain Pret-a-Porter

The event pairs design firm teams with product manufacturers, who are tasked with creating a couture ensemble for a runway fashion show.

Sie Residence

Sie Residence was HMH’s first and last venture into the Super Mansion. This 28,000 square foot house took seven years to design and build. It boosted every possible luxury including a 100 foot long fountain.


By now, the firm has created a name for itself in residential architecture, having designed a number of award winning houses.

  • Cherie Goff joins the firm.
  • Kate Dixon is hired as the firm’s first interior designer, changing the name to “HMH Architecture + Interiors”.
  • Harvey serves as president of the American Institute of Architects, Colorado North Chapter.

Onyx Building

The ONYX is a mixed use building located in Downtown Boulder. The project consists of over 4000 sq. ft. of ground floor retail space and six residential lofts located on the second and third floors.

Move to Onyx

Twenty two years after flipping on its first light switch, HMH outfitted a bright and airy space of its own in the Onyx.

Award Winner

Modern Stair

Staircases can be much more than a route to other levels. They can also ‘wow’ as a design feature and add a strong architectural statement within a home.

Design Studio Annex

As the interior design side of the practice expands, HMH found a space in the neighborhood that could house both our design studio and a showroom.

CU Boulder, ENVD Distinguished Alumni Award

Harvey selected as the recipient of the first-ever Distinguished Alumni Award, recognizing his community leadership and significant contributions to design.


Award Winner

Vail Family Condo

This retro family condo received a radical refresh for the next generation. The aesthetics are comfortable and bright with a big connection to the outdoors – and not too cliché with the skiing motif.
