If your house didn’t have an address, would people still know it was yours?

We’re Hart Wright Architects. We know the key to a great project is listening to you.

A space built around who you are develops over many conversations. It leads to work, play, and relaxation that each feel incredibly fulfilling.

From the first drawing to the last nail, we’re site-sensitive, ego-free, and hands-on.

We don’t just design houses, we make you feel at home.

A roadmap for our collaboration

01. Programming

This is where we define the project; two meetings with plenty of brainstorming and dreaming-out-loud to establish what works in your current home and/or what you hope for.

02. Schematic Design

The next two times we meet are all about developing a concept. We’ll discuss forms, materials, styles, and solutions. By the end of this phase, we have a floor plan and elevations.

03. Design Development

This is where 2D drawings are transformed into 3D models and databases. An engineer weighs in on buildability, and real costs start to be defined.

04. Construction Documentation

Here’s where we iron-out every single detail of the vision, down to doorknobs and screw sizes. The documents we generate allow builders and craftsmen to do their jobs quickly, efficiently, and as accurately as possible.

05. Construction Administration

New discoveries always happen when paper becomes 2x4s and drywall. We collaborate closely with contractors to fulfill the intent of the project, approving decisions and being on-hand for opportunities you can’t see until the walls go up.

We look forward to

meeting you.
