The HFBT creative process stresses an open exchange of ideas both within the firm and more importantly, between the client and the firm, throughout the development of a project.  We also actively engage with other stakeholders


Through this process, we are able to ensure that the client’s needs and desires are addressed at all points in the life of a project.  Ideas are not submitted solely for approval or rejection, but rather for discussion with the hopes of spurring additional questions and ideas that will each help craft a complete solution.

A similar sentiment is central to the manner in which we weave our buildings into the environmental fabric. Each HFBT building has its own personality yet all HFBT buildings share a never-ending dedication to creating a dialogue with their surroundings.


Informed by the human scale, our buildings aim to make an important contribution to the environment in which they are situated and to provide an uplifting backdrop for all of society.


We understand and control the design and construction process, budget and programme; we see the big picture and commit to getting the detail right.  We try to go further, to exceed technical expectations and to delight with simplicity and quality.
