Laura Davis and Holly Hall podcasters

meet your co-hosts

The Architecture Happy Hour is an informal and entertaining podcast started in 2009 hosted by hpd architecture + interiors principals, Laura Davis and Holly Hall.

From the very beginning we wanted the podcast to feel like you were sitting down with friends to chat about architecture and home design.” shares Davis. “And if you happen to have a cocktail in your hand, even better.”

Davis and Hall enjoy interviewing special guests to share their thoughts and tips on architecture and interior design. Their intent is to help homeowners and those involved in home projects make decisions more easily.

We think of our listeners as friends, clients, and colleagues. Laura and I share our own experiences from real projects and pass on tips from lessons we’ve learned. We want to know what is important to our listeners so we can be a friendly resource.” says Hall.
