Bruce A. Hawtin, FAIA / NCARB / Principal Architect

Bruce started his own office in 1971 in Jackson, Wyoming, following work experience that took him to the District of Colombia and overseas to Denmark. He completed twelve years as a member of the State Board of Architects and Landscape Architects, serving as president for five years. He is a past president of the Wyoming Chapter of the American Institute of Architects and was made a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects in 1998. He has won four recent AIA Merit Awards for projects completed at Hawtin Jorgensen Architects. Bruce has served on several nonprofit boards, including being elected to four terms as a trustee at St. John’s Medical Center. Bruce currently serves on the Board of Directors for Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance and recently has served with the Latino Resource Center (One 22), Center for the Arts, and Habitat for Humanity. He holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Oklahoma.

Bruce feels more connected to the valley than anywhere else he has been; nearly five decades of living in a place will do that. This sense of belonging translates to his relationship with clients as well. He takes tremendous pride in the projects that his firm has completed, feeling that each one has made a positive contribution to the fabric of the Jackson Hole community. “At our firm, we take the time to have detailed discussions and develop a well-thought-out plan before we ever embark on a project. Getting to know the client is the key element of developing a successful building.”

With strong roots in the community, Bruce and his wife often go for hikes in Grand Teton National Park and treasure the opportunity to visit Yellowstone. They work out at their gym, travel, read and visit with their grandchildren as well as play with their dog, Buji. Bruce maintains close ties to the University of Oklahoma, where he began his career in architecture after serving in the U.S. Army in the Korean War.
