Robert Featherston, AIA

I have always had a need to create; an inherent curiosity to understand how materials come together to make beautiful, functional, detailed and finely crafted objects and spaces. I use my hands to understand my surroundings, to find the potential of materials, and to design, draw and build elegant and concise art, products and furniture.

My fascination drove me to Architecture and I graduated from Mississippi State University in 2012. I began my career at a small, award winning firm specializing in historic renovations and rehabilitations. After two years developing a sensitivity to historic details and proportion, my wife and I packed our bags to become Austinites and with great excitement I joined Cuppett Kilpatrick Architects in April 2014.

After hours, my wife and I enjoy taking our dog around town, going to the Green Belt and Zilker park and attending as many exciting Austin events as possible. I never stop designing and continue to create furniture and other pieces with my growing collection of tools.
