Fernau & Hartman Architects

Fernau & Hartman Architects
Fernau & Hartman Architects was founded in 1981 and almost immediately established a unique reputation for diversity and excellence in design. Based in Berkeley, California with a field office in Clyde Park, Montana, our work can be found in regions that range from the vineyards of California, to the ranchlands of Colorado, and to the picturesque hamlets of the Hudson Valley and Martha’s Vineyard. Our work combines an understanding of traditional and vernacular buildings with contemporary innovation and a special concern for sustainability. We seek to merge architecture with landscape, and indoors with outdoors, deepening the connection to climate and site. As early adopters of energy-conscious design, our approach always begins with the integration of passive systems, the “first principles” of architecture. Although our work is enriched through diverse interests and concerns, each project finds its point of departure in specific circumstances of the site and our client’s needs. Process is important to us; through collaboration and improvisation, site-walks and workshops, we work closely with our clients to discover and enhance the potential of the place.
