As a team, we provide excellent and unique design solutions, management, communications skills and in-depth understanding of building technologies. We are equipped to handle projects of varying scale and complexity. Our expertise enables us to provide design leadership and manage the planning and construction process while remaining responsive to the needs of our clients.

HMD New York seeks to deliver a unique design aesthetic that employs design and materials in creative, efficient and high-performing ways. We define good design of any scale as a product of collaboration and innovation - two forces which, along with our drive for excellence, stand as the basis of our design philosophy. Even though design and aesthetics are always on our minds, our design approach reaches beyond formalistic dogma and into the real matter of the built environment to explore human occupancy and comfort, cultural sensitivity, contextual harmony and environmental responsiveness. Understanding the clients vision, needs and constraints are most important to us at the outset of a project to accomplish a successful completion. Our design responds to the needs and aspirations of our clients and communities.
Through novel organizational strategies, we produce lasting cultural and interpersonal values, improving communities and fostering a high degree of environmental stewardship.
By connecting people and ideas with spaces and places, we create unique and complex environments whose qualities exceed our clients’ requirements and expand their imaginations.
