Founded in Friendship

October 28th, 2014

A friendship that has endured more than three decades now serves as the foundation of one of the region’s brightest design practices. Dennis Humphries, AIA, and Joseph Poli, AIA first met as fraternity brothers at the University of Illinois, Champaign in the early 1970’s. Their lives have been intertwined ever since. Aspiring to create a practice of their own, in 1994 Humphries Poli Architects, P.C. (HPA) was formed by setting community commitment through design excellence as the cornerstone. The firm has grown steadily since.

As a firm, we still believe in friendship and community as the basis for a great architecture practice. Our office regularly participates in activities and events, both in and out of the office, to further bolster those relationships. You will see us taking building tours together around the city, hitting the slopes at Winter Park, cheering on the Rockies, or just biking around to work and job sites.
