Getting to Know Chris Claus
Chris’ knack for design goes back to his family roots. Being raised by a large artistic family, his passion for architecture and design was constantly supported and fueled by his family. He has earned degrees in Architecture, Planning & Design and also Interior Design from UMKC and Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design.
With more than 16 years of experience in the industry, Chris specializes in public K-12 education. His daily inspiration? His two kiddos, one of which is on the autistic spectrum. Chris thrives knowing that he serves as their voice in creating innovative environments conducive to learning and accelerating their creativity, paralleling exactly what Hollis + Miller strives for in each project.
When he’s not in the office, Chris does what any Coloradan would do — heads to the mountains. Whether it’s hiking, camping, biking or maintaining the ranch, he and his kids can be found enjoying the great outdoors.
