Greg Dutton, Assoc. AIA

With projects throughout the United States, from New York and Los Angeles to the rural Midwest, Greg is equally at home designing in open green spaces and dense urban areas.

His work has been featured in publications such as Dwell, Wallpaper*, New York Magazine, and GQ; as well as showcased on Discovery’s Building Off the Grid and HGTV’s Restored by the Fords. Midland’s projects have been recognized through numerous awards by institutions such as the AIA and periodicals such as Architect Magazine.
