At Hamilton Snowber Architects, we view the design and construction process as a creative collaboration between client, architect and builder to create homes to meet your physical, aesthetic and financial needs. From establishing your design program all the way to moving into your finished home, we provide personal and professional services that make the experience efficient and enjoyable.

Cynthia Hamilton and Chris Snowber have worked with clients in the Washington metropolitan area, as well as other parts of the country (New England, Chesapeake Bay and Coastal Virginia, Midwest), to develop residential projects at a variety of scales and settings. With each project, we seek to develop solutions that respond to the specific needs of the client, site and surrounding context. To meet those needs, we employ the architectural language that is most appropriate, whether traditional, transitional, or more contemporary.

We consider understanding the landscape - the yard, the street, the community, the region - an integral part of any design solution. Throughout the day, through the seasons, a house should interact with its setting in ways that inspire and delight.

Environmentally responsible design leads us to seek solutions which limit a project’s impact through the use of green products and practices. In applying these principles, this means maximizing insulation and use of green materials, as well as seeking ways to employ alternative sources of energy, including geothermal, photovoltaic production of electricity and solar collectors for hot water.

Potential Clients: To discuss your project and how we might help, please call Chris Snowber or Cynthia Hamilton.

Commented: what is the size of the tub itself and the overall tub surround? I believe it is a 3'x6' tub, and the surround is 6" more at each end, 3" on one side and 6" on the other. So total space is 3'-9" x 7'-0".
