Providing Excellence in Design with Exceptional Service!
HDG is excited to announce our 2023 submission to the Design Pittsburgh People’s Choice Awards through AIA. The People’s Choice Award provides the community with an opportunity to weigh in on designed spaces in our local community. HDG submitted the Meyer Farm project for the conceptual/unbuilt category since the project fit the category so well with it being designed to work with the existing site and native plants and wildlife and focuses on reusing the building materials when possible and sourcing sustainable building materials when needed to provide a living classroom experience for environmental education that harnesses sustainable practices and emphasizes nature in the suburban farm setting.
Please take a moment and vote for Meyer Farm under the Conceptual/Unbuilt category: https://aiapgh.org/events/design-pittsburgh/pca-design-pgh/meyer-farm/
Voting closes on Sunday, October 8th at midnight. Our thanks to all of you for supporting our firm!
About Us & Our Culture
Part of our passion for building strong communities is our dedication to giving back to the local community. Each year, HDG supports local nonprofits through community sponsorships, participation in community service projects, and matching employee donations to local non-profits. Whether it’s going the extra mile for a client or hosting a toy drive, the firm’s work reflects a sense of greater purpose to work together for the benefit of the community.
As part of this mission, each year we take the opportunity to showcase our profession and skills through helping to keep important local landmarks and architectural icons maintained. The firm’s Adopt-a-Landmark program is focused on the important role that the architectural profession can play in honoring local historic landmarks to ensure their upkeep and maintenance so everyone can continue to enjoy the rich local history and culture they provide!
3D Animated Architectural Renderings
The new, state-of-the-art Peters Township High School opened to students in January 2021. Watch this 3D video rendering to see what the students see as they enter the school each day!
This video is an example of HDG’s architectural rendering capabilities, and is a service we provide to more fully visualize a project’s conceptual design. An animated fly-through video rendering of this kind can be useful in assisting clients with building consensus for a project and/or with fundraising prior to the completion of final design.
