Shutze was born in Columbus, Georgia to Sarah Lee (née Erwin) and Phillip Trammell Shutze.[1] He graduated with a B.S. in architecture from Georgia Tech in 1912, and Bachelor of Architecture from Columbia University in 1913.[2] After winning the Rome Prize in 1915 he spent several years in Europe studying European architecture before returning to Atlanta to work for the architectural firm of Hentz, Reid and Adler.[3] Shutze thereafter designed many well-known buildings in the Atlanta area, becoming a partner of the company in 1927. He was a Fellow of the American Academy in Rome. Shutze died in Atlanta on October 17, 1982.

He "was also known for his important collection of porcelain, silver, furniture, rugs, and paintings", which is on display in the Swan House of the Atlanta History Center. He is the subject of a signature, permanent exhibit at the Atlanta History Center.[4][5]

Several of Shutze's works are listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.[6]
