Since its founding in 1996 by Ken Hayes, AIA, Hayes Group Architects has distinguished itself as a diverse design practice dedicated to solving client problems with innovative but practical architectural solutions.

At Hayes Group Architects, we believe design is an iterative process, ensuring that the solutions we create will accurately reflect our client’s core values, goals, and mission. Our architectural style is circumstantial, not predetermined, and responds to the nature of the site, the social and physical context, and to our client’s lifestyle, work style, and aesthetic disposition.

While this philosophy has earned us awards from the design community, its true value is in how it enables us to create solutions that are as diverse in physical response as they are in purpose, and that reflect each client’s personality. And because we believe the best solutions are custom-tailored to our client’s needs, we rigorously manage the size of our firm to provide a personal but scalable experience to all of our clients, no matter how large – or small – their projects may be. Not only does this make it possible for one of the principals to be involved in every project we undertake, but it also leverages the depth and breadth of our staff’s experience and vision, yielding designs of uncompromising quality.

Our services are tailored to each of our client’s needs and reflect a broad range of expertise in project programming and needs analysis, environmental site analysis, zoning analysis, feasibility studies, architectural design and navigating the planning entitlement process.  Throughout our client relationship we engage with other design professionals, makers and builders who bring their expertise to bear on each and every project to ensure success from initial problem seeking, through construction and to project occupancy.  We employ different methods of project delivery including traditional design – bid – build, design – build, pricing and early contractor selection as well as others so that when the project is ready for construction it is.

Our interior design studios provide comprehensive services for buildings we and others have designed including visioning, space planning, interior architectural design, furniture selection and procurement to creatively integrate the interior environment with our client’s needs and the building’s attributes and amenities.

Opportunities are frequently changing and we’re always interested in hearing from you.
