Coldham & Hartman Architects designs for a resilient and renewable future. For us, the context of architecture is bounded by sun, wind, water, and soil. We achieve our clients’ aesthetic and design goals through careful listening, thoughtful process, and quality assurance during the construction process.

We specialize in the renovation of obsolete houses, those built in a fossil fuel economy. We transform them into comfortable, efficient, effective and beautiful homes. We site new buildings to maximize their solar orientation and create elegant architecture that seamlessly integrates into the natural landscape. Our portfolio includes both new and renovated net-zero energy homes.

c&h: design for the next hundred years.

Miller Pollin Architecture

2017-03-27T18:53:49+00:00

The built environment has great potential for bettering the quaility of our everyday lives, including the way we work, learn and enjoy life. Undergirding all of the work that Miller Pollin produces is the notion that interpretive, contemporary design should be democratic; it should belong to all people who experience the built environment in all its forms, from housing to educational, public and institutional facilities.

The studio’s principal is Sigrid Miller Pollin, FAIA, Professor of Architecture and Design at the University of Massaschusetts, Amherst. She believes that effective design at any scale, from spoons to skyscrapers evolves from a creative synthesis of information and inclusive behavior toward everyone involved in the design and production process — clients, contractors, engineers, planners and landscape architects. Needless to say budget reality is also always a key part of this synthesis.
