James Hardy’s philosophy is very simple – no dogma, pure instinct.
JHA’s talents and skills combine to create designs that are a collaboration of what nature gives of the land, the client’s dreams and desires, and the unique view corridors and micro-climates present.  Hardy’s portfolio of projects are characterized by innovative, high quality architecture blending local vernacular designs and natural elements with contemporary influences.
James Hardy Architects is a firm committed to innovative sustainable design, while designing sophisticated Western architecture inspired by the land and its surrounds.  Clean modern lines, contemporary Western influence, and a respect for nature create a home that is a work of art for generations to come.

“My two primary considerations are the client and the site.  It is important to fit the house into the landscape, with the shape of the house moving with the views.”
