Laura Davis is a registered architect and interior designer in the state of Texas and a founding member of hpd architecture + interiors. Laura has a range of experience that includes residential as well as commercial, retail, and historical projects.
As a certificate holder in Historic Preservation, Laura enjoys working with existing spaces to bring new life to older properties. She is energized by the character of older homes and the stories of those who have lived there. Responding to the needs of the current owner, while also honoring the personality of the original home is a delicate process to be enjoyed.
Laura’s passion is discovering her clients’ personal wants and needs, as well as the “why” behind their wish list. The details of their lifestyle, the daily activities of their family members, and learning what gets them up in the morning all help shape the design that makes a house their home.

We would all like to think we are not getting older. And no one wants to admit they don’t bound up stairs quite as quickly as they used to.
As residential architects and interior designers, we have the opportunity to develop long-term relationships with many clients, with some relationships spanning over 25 years. We have the privilege of watching families grow and assisting with their changing needs.
In a recent meeting with one long-term client who happens to be living with a degenerative illness, the discussion about their master bath renovation became about not just making the space beautiful but also accessible. We were with them as their children grew up and left home, and now we have the opportunity to assist them in their next phase of life.
In 2010, hpd architecture + interiors came together to discuss our vision for the next 10 years. We quickly realized that as architects we would soon start seeing the need for more accessible living environments. We saw an opportunity to talk with current and future clients about how to make the most of where they live.
We decided to create an avenue where we could focus attention on design, renovation, and construction of homes that were accessible for all clients-from young couples looking for their first home to people needing a place that works with their disabilities to empty-nesters who enjoy their home but need more functionality as they grow older.
