Professional Profile

Hans D. Strauch, AIA, President, has more than 40 years of experience in the planning, design, and construction of major residential and commercial projects in the United States and Europe. During that time he has been recognized for his ability to merge aesthetic sensibilities, economic realities, and client needs into buildings of distinction and lasting value.

At HDS, the international architectural design firm he founded in 1989, Hans leads a distinguished team of architects, designer, illustrators, and technology specialists. His building designs include affordable housing developments, corporate and commercial headquarters, mixed-use urban developments, multi-family residences, luxury estates, retail destinations, and waterfront marketplaces. His design work has been featured in World Architecture, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, Architecture Boston, Urban Land, The Irish Times, The Boston Business Journal, and The Berliner Morgenpost.

Prior to the formation of HDS, Hans was a principal with Benjamin Thompson & Associates (BTA), where he was the executive designer of several award-winning projects, including Miami Bayside in Miami, Florida; The Ordway Music Theater in St. Paul, Minnesota; and the Custom House Docks mixed-use development in Dublin, Ireland. In 1987, he was part of the BTA team that won prestigious America Institute of Architects Firm of the Year Award.
