Why I do what I do…

Hi, I’m Harriet Lammin. I am passionate about buildings and have always loved engaging with the world of materials, space and light.

I like using my knowledge and creativity to give my clients freedom to express their ideas without dictating what they should like. Ive been an architect for 25 years and I know you can always get a great result if you think clearly about design.

Most people think budget is their biggest limiting factor, but usually its not. Using a fraction of the budget to create and plan a design that fits your exact specifications, is really the only way to get enduring quality on budget.

What I like to do is work with smart people to figure out perfect-fit designs. It is so satisfying to pull all those strands together and deliver real value every time.

How I do it …

I take my responsibilities very seriously and feel personally invested in each project. I know what it takes to get it right which is why I see myself as a partner for my clients and part of their team.

I work with my in-house team to do the building design, drafting and documentation, and gather and manage other specialists according to the specific needs of each project.

That is why Ive built such a strong network of stakeholders: structural engineers, traffic engineers, town planners, interior and landscape designers, and other consultants. Every project presents a unique set of requirements and its part of my job to call on people who have proven their ability to give sound advice and for-see issues that might arise.

Our Track Record:

In recent years we have completed more than 50 projects with a current market value well over $100,000,000.
