Charles Hilton Architects is a 19-person design firm, based in Greenwich, Conn., and specializing in the finest quality custom residential architecture, sustainable design and waterfront projects.
Over the past 26 years, Charles Hilton’s name has become synonymous with the highest quality design and exceptional personal service.
The firm has earned a reputation for producing traditionally inspired residences, landscape features and architectural interiors that are beautiful, practical and fit harmoniously in their environment.
The firm has never sought to develop a signature style, choosing rather to pursue a more pluralistic approach to design.
Project designs build on a deep knowledge and appreciation of the traditional architectural principals and the use of well-crafted materials while seamlessly integrating the modern technologies today’s sophisticated clients expect.
Charles Hilton Architects’ designs reflect the unique personalities of their owners, the attributes of their specific setting and the historical context in which they are based.
The results are designs that are simultaneously responsive to their place and time and that will serve their inhabitants for generations to come. The firm’s work has been recognized by numerous award committees, peer groups and both regional and national publications.
Hilton’s work spans the United States, although its concentration has always been on high-end residential projects in Fairfield County, Conn., and Westchester County, New York.
His work has been recognized with professional, trade association and shelter publication design awards. His homes are published regularly in regional and national publications focusing on such topics as traditional residential design, waterfront homes, green design and historic preservation.
Hilton is also a lecturer and has been featured in recent years in two TV series. Hilton holds NCARB accreditation, is a licensed Interior Designer, and is a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the Institute of Classical Architecture & Classical America.
