Building An Architectural Legacy.

David C. Hovey, FAIA & DAVID HOVEY, JR., AIA

Founded by David Hovey in 1978, Optima’s very name summarizes Hovey’s intentions and achievements — to reinvent residential housing by optimizing development, design and construction. Attentive to the smallest details of his craft, Hovey has created award-winning communities — including four in Arizona — that have been recognized time and again for their cutting-edge aesthetic and integration with their respective locations. Hovey works together with his son, David Hovey, Jr. who carries on his father’s legacy as he continues to refine Optima’s visionary approach, innovative technology and progressive environmental standards.
