About Coldham&Hartman Architects

Coldham&Hartman Architects is a full service architectural practice designing residential, commercial, and institutional buildings for public, private, and non-profit entities.

We have a passion for and professional commitment to fine architecture, and specifically to elevating "green" design to a high order of aesthetic refinement. "We want our buildings to be green and graceful" says founding principal Bruce Coldham.

We undertake building rehabilitation because we believe that revitalization of old buildings is key to keeping our cities and towns alive, and to solving the planet’s energy puzzle.

Our institutional work underscores our belief that the infrastructure of our common future must be thoughtful, enjoyable, and productive, so that it can outlast those who helped to build it.

We believe in the creative potential of a well-coordinated, mutually respectful team. Though we are a small office, our reach is wide.Our network of consultants includes some of the most accomplished systems designers and building analysts in North America.
