Matthew Hufft is the President and Creative Director of Hufft Projects. The firm recently completed the renovation of the Grocer’s Warehouse, a 60,000 sq. ft.  warehouse that sits at the base of Roanoke Park near the intersection of Karnes Boulevard and Roanoke Road. Hufft’s multi-disciplinary design studio is the flagship tenant of the space. The Grocer’s Warehouse was built in 1949 by Kansas City grocer Fred Wolferman.

Hufft has also completed several rehabilitations along Armour Boulevard, including the Bellerive Hotel. In both his personal and professional practice Matthew believes in the importance of authenticity and keeping the fabric of the city intact.

A: My favorite building in Kansas City is the Nelson, because it is an exemplary example of how the historic and the modern coexist.
