Christopher G. Hancock, Intern Architect

Service to others is the core of his work ethic. Christopher holds a Masters Degree in Architecture from Montana State University; pursued a degree in geography from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec; and maintains a ministerial degree that led to missionary work in Germany and Holland. Christopher also holds a LEED Green Associate credential. He joined Hawtin Jorgensen Architects in 2010 after winning both the AIA Henry Adams Medal and the Tau Sigma Delta Bronze Medal.

Christopher has worked both sides of the building equation, working as a carpenter in Jackson since 1991, and now as an architect. He greatly appreciates the collaborative nature of work at Hawtin Jorgensen Architects and feels that the integrated workshop approach to each of their projects fosters strong connections with the client and a better product when the process is complete.

Architecture is a practice, Christopher notes, “ . . . with unlimited possibilities. There is great satisfaction in being of service to the client. My goal, in all aspects of life, is to leave a place in better condition than when I found it.” As such, he believes that open communication between all the principal parties is critical to the success of any design/build enterprise.

In addition to his work at Hawtin Jorgensen Architects, Christopher practices yoga and enjoys photography, playing music, skiing and woodworking. He loves the Jackson Hole outdoor lifestyle in all its guises, which he shares with his wife and their black Labrador named China, who “. . . throws a tennis ball as well as retrieving it. Seriously! I should post it on YouTube.”
