HALL ARCHITECTS is a multi-disciplinary architecture and planning firm specializing in creative solutions which contributes to our community's rich cultural heritage; helps to foster business growth; and enhances our clients' passions to live, work, and play. We believe design excellence arises from a gauged response to every factor affecting development including: physical, social, environmental, regulatory, and financial considerations. Mastering these elements inspires project-specific solutions for distinctive architecture that celebrates the art and craft of design and construction regardless of scale.
HALL ARCHITECTS provides design services for clients from the private and public sectors. The firm has rich and varied experience with all types of public and private sector projects.
Gregory Hall, AIA started the firm in the fall of 2003 after a career in medium and large multi-disciplinary offices in northeast and southwest Florida.

During this period he worked on a full range of project types for public and private sector clients on projects that include custom residential, museums, international airports, festival marketplaces, educational facilities, university buildings, town centers, medium-rise commercial towers, and corporate campuses. Over 50 of these projects have received awards for their design.
Prior to relocating to Sarasota, Mr. Hall held faculty positions at the University of Florida’s College of Design, Construction, and Planning as well as the Preservation Institute: Nantucket where he taught courses in architecture, interior design and historic preservation. He was twice recognized as the College’s Teacher of the Year.
As a professional Architect, Mr. Hall had experience in all phases of the building and design process; from space-need determination and site evaluation, to planning, design, contract document preparation, and construction administration.
