Halflants + Pichette holds state licenses for both architecture and construction. On select projects, we perform both design and construction services. As architects and builders, we bring to the construction site our design background and a holistic approach to solving construction related issues.

While most design-build firms are led by contractors, Halflants + Pichette is centered on design. All of our design-build projects are overseen by architects allowing us to maintain management continuity and design oversight throughout the project phases. At every phase of design and construction, we seek feedback directly from our on-site staff and subcontractors and can make informed aesthetic and cost-conscious decisions on the project.

Modifying the predictable approach of an all-white modern space, he suggested that we paint the core of the unit a bold color. Most significantly, he didn't push this idea but rather showed us examples... Full review ›

Michael Halflants and John Pichette draw upon precedents of significant modern icons of the Sarasota School and bring to the work a broader international sensibility. This can clearly be seen in the award winning Solstice House. Full review ›
