Preserve. Innovate.

We create with passion architecture design that has great impact.

Since our founding thirty one years ago, HH Fremer Architects has provided conscientious solutions to our clients’ architectural and planning efforts.  Led by founding Principal Hal Fremer, our team of programmers, architects, designers, project managers, and technical consultants consistently delivers exceptional results which arise from careful consideration of our clients’ aspirations.

HHFA operates on the belief that the nature of architecture is in its details. The success of our approach is evident in our innovative designs and our strong reputation for quality renovation. Where practical elements are paramount, we must pay special attention to creating spaces where function can coexist with inspiration. Details can elevate a project’s architectural impact – while never sacrificing comfort and accessibility – and address how the built environment can enrich the experience of its occupants, its surroundings, and its ecosystem as a whole.

At Fremer Architects, we believe that every architectural project is a unique journey, and we are committed to guiding our clients through a seamless and collaborative process from concept to completion. Our approach is structured into four distinct phases, each carefully designed to ensure your vision becomes a reality:

Pre-Design Phase: This is where our journey begins. We’ll start by understanding your goals, needs, and dreams. We’ll assess the site, zoning requirements, and budget constraints, setting the foundation for a successful project.

Design Phase: In this phase, we’ll harness our creativity and expertise to craft a unique design tailored to your specific requirements. We’ll work closely with you to develop concepts and refine them into a cohesive architectural vision that reflects your style and functional needs.

Construction Document Phase: With the design locked in, we’ll create detailed, comprehensive plans and specifications. These documents serve as the roadmap for builders and contractors, ensuring that your project is executed accurately, on time, and within budget.

Construction Administration Phase: As construction begins, we’ll continue to be your trusted partner. Our team will oversee the construction process, maintaining quality control, addressing issues that may arise, and ensuring that the final result matches the original design.

Throughout the entire journey, we prioritize open communication, transparency, and collaboration. Our goal is to make the process as stress-free as possible while delivering a design that exceeds your expectations.

Your vision is our inspiration, and we are committed to transforming it into reality. Let Fremer Architects be your guide on this exciting architectural journey.
