Michael McHugh

Project Architect

Michael McHugh joined Davis Square Architects in 2012. As a Project Manager, he is the resident sustainability expert, and imparts this attention to numerous renovations projects. 

Michael worked on Rosemont Square Apartments, located in Randolph, Massachusetts. The project scope consisted of the construction of three four-story wood frame residential buildings in an existing development. 

Michael brings over 10 years of sustainable design and planning experience on large-scale cultural facilities incorporating assembly, restaurant, classroom, retail, storage, and attendant back-of-house support spaces (Green Square Raleigh, Tampa Bay History Museum, and the Tubman African American Museum). His experience also includes decades of working with non-profit organizations on cafés, offices, and training centers (More Than Words Bookstore & Café, Fresh Truck, Irish International Immigrant Center, and Bridge Over Troubled Waters). Michael joined the BSA’s Taskforce to End Homelessness in 1989 and became a co-chair in 2000.

In 2004 he co-founded the Architecture for Humanity Boston (AfHB) Chapter, and in 2005 merged the Taskforce and AfHB. He has chaired it ever since, reflecting thousands of hours of volunteer work.
