Since its inception, H+A has designed distinctive single-family homes, lofts, and apartments throughout the United States, and we are proud to have cultivated relationships with an extraordinary network of individuals that we think of as collaborators as much as clients. Our work is rooted in ‘concept-driven design’ and aims to celebrate the inherent qualities and character of a site as well as the unique aspirations of the people who will inhabit it. For our private clients, H+A’s interdisciplinary team works together to create architecture, interior design, and personalized graphic expression to meet their highest design standards and exceed expectations. Our residential design team has received honors from every major awards program in the industry and our work has been widely published many times over to a growing, global audience.Residential Portfolio
Hacin Corporate Hero.
Working with entrepreneurs, creative companies, non-profit organizations, and seasoned developers, our commercial buildings and interiors have been praised for their thoughtful designs and are often respected as neighborhood landmarks. Much of our work has been considered catalytic in the realm of housing and neighborhood redevelopment, impacting the trajectory of entire communities and the city at large. H+A’s experience creating dynamic workspaces for advertising agencies, design consultancies, beauty product laboratories, and real estate agencies and investors, further illustrates the range and influence of our broad commercial practice. The work we do supports our belief in the impact of ‘incremental urbanism’ — the notion that small actions can add up to big changes in our community over time — and is well demonstrated through our extensive body work throughout the Boston area.Commercial Portfolio
H+A has cultivated a distinct portfolio of retail, hotel, and restaurant work throughout the Greater Boston area and around the world. We firmly believe that a strong design identity is integral to the success of any brand or venture. Reflecting our range of top tier retail and hospitality clients, our team’s design expertise is similarly diverse and far-reaching: We have, over time, created a series of clean, modern trademark designs for a global beauty brand, conceived a top rated contemporary hotel that honors the character of a historic neighborhood, and contributed to the success of a number of recognized restaurateurs and celebrity chefs. Collaborating with local, national, and international clients, H+A’s award-winning projects have been widely featured in the commercial and fashion press, recognized with top industry awards, and embraced by enthusiastic audiences everywhere we go.Retail + Hospitality Portfolio
Over three decades, H+A has built a reputation for work that celebrates our collective history. In the traditional sense, our work in architectural preservation has involved protecting historic structures from adverse change, either by restoration, careful intervention, or by avoiding intervention altogether to maintain a project’s cultural integrity. H+A also embraces a broader definition of preservation that includes adapting historic buildings for modern use or constructing new buildings on historic sites that strengthen the character of an existing neighborhood or district. H+A is well-versed in identifying innovative solutions to meet the goals of preservation agencies, understanding the technical requirements of new and existing buildings, and always keeping the programmatic needs of our clients uppermost in our minds. Over the years, our work has been recognized by the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Boston Preservation Alliance, among others.Preservation + Reuse Portfolio
