Since the mid-1980s, HLR Architects has created an abundance of spaces where children and adults love to learn.  We understand the unique aspects involved in school design, and have formed countless long-term relationships with many public school districts and private school communities as a result of that.

Institutional design can be an interesting challenge, since the projects are always in the public eye. At HLR, we provide excellent designs that meet our clients’ budget and timeline, while meeting their constituents’ needs.
