Goldreyer Architects is a design firm with extensive
experience in custom residential projects. HGA was founded
in 1991 when Deborah Goldreyer and Bart Hamlin formalized
a working relationship that started in 1975 when they
were in the same Masters of Architecture program at
Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture
and quality design are the two fundamentals of HGA’s
philosophy. While justifiably proud of their design
achievements, it is the client's satisfaction that is
the key to HGA’s continued success. A recent client
remarked on what makes Hamlin Goldreyer Architects different
from their competition: “Deborah and Bart treated
our project like it was their own home.”
satisfaction starts with listening. The entire schematic
design phase is all about understanding the client’s
desires and creating an appropriate design solution.
Each iteration of design will create a client response
and each response will help develop the design to meet
the client’s aesthetic and programmatic needs.
It is HGA’s goal that every client feels that
their house is a reflection of their own aesthetics
and life style. They will be proud to call it home.
satisfaction continues with excellent documentation.
HGA values good project documents because they are the
technical representation of quality service and design.
Good drawings and specifications must do many things:
They must represent the design intent at a very refined
level; They must help the builder understand how to
price the project and how to build it and; They must
be the basis for ongoing review of project progress
during the construction phase. HGA firmly believes that
excellent documentation produces excellent homes.
satisfaction remains the objective throughout construction.
HGA maintains a high level of involvement during the
building process in order to confirm the project is
being produced according to the homeowner approved design.
Steady involvement by HGA will help the project continue
on schedule, help resolve unanticipated problems and
help maintain the aesthetic integrity of the project.
An ongoing, positive relationship amongst designer,
builder and homeowner assures that the project team
will work well together to a successful conclusion.
Deborah and Bart are involved in the design and production
of every project, from initial design through construction.
Their passion and constant involvement ensures a high
level of service and design quality. The results are
great homes and, most importantly, happy clients.
