KATIE HASTINGS, AIA
RESIDENTIAL ARCHITECT BASED IN AUSTIN, TEXAS
Born in New Orleans, LA and raised amongst the live oak trees, eclectic culture and historic architecture, Katie Giles Hastings brings a unique perspective to her work. She attended The University of Texas at Austin where she received a Bachelor of Architecture Degree. Katie's career began in commercial interior architecture and design, working for award-winning firms in both Austin, TX and Seattle, WA. Upon her return to Austin, TX in 2011, Katie shifted more into residential work and found her passion for working directly with homeowners to create homes and spaces that worked better for their needs. Katie Hastings Design was formed in 2013 doing both architecture and interior design and in 2023 was relaunched as Katie Hastings Architecture focusing primarily on residential architectural projects of all types and sizes.
Katie prides herself on being a good listener, realizing the importance of hearing a client's needs and coming up with solutions that are both functional and beautiful. She also realizes the importance of strong relationships and good communication between the owner, architect, and builder to achieve a successful project. And natural light is never a bad idea!
Katie lives in Austin TX with her husband Jeff and 2 active, sporty children who keep her busy outside of work. And she makes time for family, friends, and travel as often as possible.
Katie Hastings AIA is a sole-practitioner licensed architect providing a full range of architectural services for residential projects of all types and sizes in and around Austin, TX.
She typically begins by discussing the overall project goals with a client, and if needed can help determine the feasibility of a project on a certain property. She can then take a project from schematic design through the development of drawings for pricing, permitting, and construction. During construction, she can also act as the liaison between the client and their selected builder to see the project through construction successfully.
She has an appreciation for many different styles of architecture, but her favorite projects incorporate both modern architectural details and styling with more classic elements to create warm, interesting spaces in which to live, whether it is a remodel or a new build.
HOME DESIGN & DECOR AUSTIN - SAN ANTONIO, DECEMBER 2021 / JANUARY 2022
Katie's exceptional knowledge and expertise of building within one of the city's oldest neighborhoods is unparalleled. Working within a tight, tree-protected, historically-preserved footprint, Katie was able to create the perfect home for our family with every request factored into the design. In the midst of a pandemic, Katie was our advocate with the City of Austin and had excellent communication with our interior design and building teams. We can't wait to work with her on another project in the future!
