We create places for people to thrive

Outpost Architects is a full-service, modern design practice that exists to help people thrive by driving a set of values that we collectively call C.R.A.F.T.

colorado architect values

These values reverberate through our culture and continually remind us why we do what we do. They also challenge us to always hold people, the pursuit of beauty, and the bottom line (both ours and our clients’) in the same hand.

But our values – as important as they are – are only part of what makes us who we are. We thrive when we are close to nature, and we are at our best as designers when given the freedom to meet the highest demands of our clients with solutions that are unencumbered by preconceptions. Of course, craft is also the skillful act of making things by hand, and the correlation between our value set and our profession is not incidental. Yes, we leverage digital technology at nearly every turn, but we also relish opportunities to step away from our computers. Hand sketches, physical models, material selections, and regular visits to our projects while under construction are all part of our practice.

Take a look around our website, learn more about Our Approach, and submit one of our forms if that’s convenient for you. If it isn’t, just give us a call.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Aaron Hunt
Founding Principal &
Chief Vision Officer

Aaron is a native Texan whose professional journey began at world-class design firms in New York (Deborah Berke Partners) and San Francisco (SOM). There he gained hands-on experience with steel fabrication, high-rise construction, and an approach to making buildings that reinforced his modern sensibilities. These formative years were followed by stints in Austin and then Denver where his design, technical, and management skills were honed through the delivery of public buildings, finely-detailed private estates, and large, mixed-use developments.

Then, in 2019, Aaron launched Outpost Architects with a vision to craft pioneering projects throughout the Mountain West. Today, he directs all aspects of the firm’s culture and activities toward the development of people and partnerships that make this possible.

Professional accomplishments and aspirations aside, Aaron loves God, his wife, their daughters, and life in the mountains.
