Vincent Whitehurst founded his architectural practice in 2000 and has been designing and coordinating successful residential and commercial projects since. Amongst the many commissions he has been involved with, the repurposing of existing structures – commercial, industrial and historical – has been a focal point. He works with a team of talented consultants, has a good rapport with city inspections officials, and is always looking to maximize the potential of a structure and its site. Environmental and sustainable practice is paramount in any design, as well as respecting clients’ realistic budgets. Vincent has served 6 years as a volunteer on the City of Raleigh Appearance Commission and was also chair of the Pullen Park Neighborhood for many years. He lives in a house he has renovated, originally built in 1907, along with his wife and kids in downtown Raleigh.
