About Us

Hord Coplan Macht is an integrated firm offering planning, architecture, landscape architecture, interior design and historic preservation services, with offices in Baltimore, Denver and Alexandria. We combine the goals of creating functional yet inspiring spaces with the principles of innovation, thoughtful design, technical strength, collaboration and financial responsibility to uphold our clients’ best interests and deliver high performing environments for the future. We are an award-winning design firm priding ourselves on leading a collaborative programming and design process that results in beautiful, environmentally responsible, user-friendly spaces. Our process is guided by the belief that all successful projects start by listening (and hearing) to what users and stakeholders really need and ultimately desire.


Creative. Entrepreneurial. Responsible. Sensitive. We’re all about trying to achieve something special here. We don’t over plan, we look for opportunities. We’re flexible and we care about helping people realize their potential. We do much more as team than simply design together, we also volunteer at schools in our communities, play softball, plant trees, climb mountains, prepare meals for families at local children’s hospitals, and much more. HCMers are not just co-workers, we are family.

Together, we learn about and study what works the best and develop Insights into best practices.
