James Coate




James set forth from the swamplands to get to the mountains, and he loves Chattanooga for its rock climbing and accessibility to the great outdoors. James is a graduate of Louisiana State University (including one year at Washington-Alexandria Architecture Center) where he received his Bachelor of Architecture. James is an adaptive renovation devotee, and his favorite projects are exactly the types that HK is known for — repurposing old, often industrial buildings into something unexpected. In addition to being a full-time architect, James is a part-time vegetarian, limiting meat eating to just a few times a week.
