PROJECT APPROACH

At Hambly Homes, we like to keep things simple.

We are strong believers that great design should enhance our quality of life. We are passionate and determined at what we do. We know that your home should be a strong refection of you, and should take special consideration of the surroundings and natural lighting. We put an emphasis on collaboration, and good communication. We are strong believers in great design for everyone.

With Hambly Homes, home becomes a simpler way of living; home becomes an asset; home becomes a place to thrive.

We’ll take care of the design. You’ll be free to do you.

Our design values are modern with a focus on meeting the needs of the contemporary lifestyle, elegance in beautifully tuned detailing, and form that allows the inhabitants to thrive. The result is an architecture that is current but timeless. We work closely with our clients to achieve the appropriately rooted concepts and goals as established for each project. We are a small and growing firm – and will lead your project throughout the design process.

We believe that good design should enhance our quality of life and great design should pay special attention to details, lighting and spatial flow. We are fascinated with the science and psychology behind how light filled spaces influence healthier homes and happier occupants. We believe that a strong sense of place and siting of each building is also fundamental for its realization. We put a strong emphasis on successful collaboration – with our clients, with local jurisdictions, with consultants and with contractors.
