Located in the Upper Valley region of Vermont and New Hampshire, Haynes & Garthwaite Architects is a five person office that was formed in 1995 by Byron Haynes and Andrew Garthwaite. Our firm combines decades of experience with talent, energy and the specialized skills of our consultants. We work with our clients to achieve their goals in a thorough and timely fashion. Working together with clients and consultants, we create architectural solutions appropriate to the requirements and opportunities of site, program, context, schedule, environment and budget. We have kept our firm small to maintain a high level of involvement by the principals in all phases of our projects.
Our designs work well and are built well. We value clear, well detailed and beautiful design solutions that engage the past and imply connections to the future. We enjoy the process of creating a building and believe that well designed buildings are a positive addition to the community. In our experience, the most successful projects result from a collaborative approach to problem solving with client, architect, consultants, and contractor, each bringing an important perspective and making a creative contribution. The key to the success of this collaboration is communication. We see our role as facilitator, reconciling the demands of program, budget and aesthetics while providing leadership and coordination for the project. We include sustainable and energy efficient principles in every project.
