Interview with the Architects

1. What’s the first step of the architectural design process?

Designing you into your home is our first consideration as well as our most important goal. We’re “listeners.” We listen to your thoughts, we understand your priorities and budget, and we see your vision. We value your input every step of the way as we design your home around your life.

2. Why the emphasis on “authenticity”?

As in every aspect of life, authenticity in architectural design is unmistakable. Whether our client’s intention is to create a unique environment or reference a specific style, the importance of authenticity—in concept, materials and details —is critical. It is the difference between excellence and mediocrity.

3. What is the Herscoe Hajjar philosophy?

We are passionate, we are client-focused, we are hands-on. When clients hire Herscoe Hajjar Architects, they hire Rob Herscoe and Michael Hajjar.  The firm is structured to be accessible and approachable with-in all disciplines.  We view architecture as an intellectual pursuit and as a craft, and we strive to benefit our clients with our expertise and personal service.
