HOME-OFFICE is a research and design collaborative that explores the reciprocity between architectural types, their technical assemblies, and the environment. HOME-OFFICE was founded by Brittany Utting and Daniel Jacobs in 2017 and is based in Houston, Texas.

Brittany Utting is an Assistant Professor of Architecture at Rice University and co-founder of the research and design collaborative HOME-OFFICE. Her work examines the relationship between architecture, collective life, and environmental care. She is the editor of the book Architectures of Care: From the Intimate to the Common (Routledge, 2023), and co-editor of Log 60: The Sixth Sphere (Winter/Spring 2024). Brittany has been a MacDowell Fellow in Architecture, the Willard A. Oberdick Fellow at the University of Michigan’s Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, and her work has been supported by the Graham Foundation and the Buell Center. She holds a Master of Architecture from Yale University and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the Georgia Institute of Technology.

Brittany is a registered architect in New York, and prior to co-founding HOME-OFFICE she practiced at Thomas Phifer and Partners as project designer for the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw.​

Daniel Jacobs is an Instructional Assistant Professor in Architecture at the University of Houston and co-founder of HOME-OFFICE.
