In addition to offering full architectural services, Helen Hald Architecture is distinguished by also providing the following:

Hardscape design

Interior design

Lighting design

Green design

Critical areas design

Universal design

These additional disciplines mean that we design projects as a complete environment, which means that architecture, interiors, and landscape are all part of the same design solution. Landscape design services mean that the architecture does not end at the walls but actively incorporates outdoor living spaces and views. Interior architecture services mean that the project is aesthetically coordinated down to the most detailed finish and fitting. Clients do not have to hire separate interior or landscape professionals, and the result is a fully integrated design solution.

The firm has extensive experience with complex land use and environmental issues such as steep slope, wetlands, and shoreline environments. To deal with these and other complex issues, Helen Hald has established relationships with specialty consultants such as structural, mechanical, electrical, geotechnical, civil, waterproofing, acoustical, lighting, alternative energy, and third-party green verification. Highly coordinated involvement with these specialists means that their work is seamlessly integrated into the project process and outcome. The firm is fluent with permitting requirements in all local jurisdictions.

Helen Hald designs with an understanding of the dynamic element of architecture and its ability to enhance life over the course of a day or a decade. Client and architect work together to optimize the functional performance of every space as well as the sense of order and joy that should be experienced when inhabiting it. The firm’s objective is to provide design solutions that elevate daily living to the sense of life lived well, and their skills include specialized kitchen, bath, universal, and age-in-place design expertise, as well as a forward-thinking approach to maintenance and life-cycle costs.

Helen Hald sets sustainability goals with every client, focusing on appropriate solutions for each project.
