OUR APPROACH

We do more than design, build and renovate houses.  We create your lifestyle

A home is a sanctuary, a safe haven, a living organism with heart and soul through which energy travels, room to room.  It is a place your family blooms, it is the incarnation of your lifestyle, and it is the manifestation of your dreams.

Your home is a reflection of you and the life you are meant to live.  LIVE BRILLIANTLY! 

Design & Construction

From detailed designing, estimating and scheduling, to seasoned project management, HammerSmith has always been known for its unparalleled design and construction abilities.  HammerSmith builds its own designs, thus minimizing misunderstandings and finger-pointing during construction.  Our design team is in constant contact with your project manager, working in unison with your interests at the forefront.

Design-build

Imagine the results if Picasso designed his works in his imagination and then bid out the implementation of his ideas to several different painters or designers.  True design-build is not a new idea; in fact it has been used for centuries, with most European cathedrals and important architectural masterpieces being designed and built by the same entity.  Cohesive design and implemetation is essential to successful projects, and leads to quicker, less painful and more cost-effective results.

New Construction

Some of Atlanta's most impressive homes have been designed and built by HammerSmith.  We specialize in creating dramatic life-time homes.  We employ the same design philosophies on new homes as we do our renovations: every space is essential and intentional.  As you walk through a HammerSmith home, you will experience layers of surprise and delight.  You should interact with every room of your home everyday.

Kitchens and Bathrooms

No one can think of the best kitchens and bathrooms in Atlanta without recognizing HammerSmith.  For seventeen consecutive years a HammerSmith kitchen selected by the Junior League Tour of Kitchens has been a prominent feature of their tour.  HammerSmith kitchens and baths have been featured in over 150 publications, articles and awards.

Interiors, Furnishings and Custom Furniture

We believe that a home is not complete until everything is in its place and there is a place for everything.  Building with your lifestyle in mind also means surrounding you with just the right textures, fabrics, colors and furnishings that bring a sense of peace and inner happiness to your life.  We design and build custom furniture, beds, lights, metal work, barn doors--where there is a unique need, we are on it.

Green Building

Many companies have jumped on the green bandwagon in the past decade acting as though it were a new trend.  HammerSmith, since its inception in 1991, has taken the environment seriously.  We have always had recycling containers on our job sites, have hired only non-smoking employees, have been a leader in green building designs--we even helped write the EarthCraft Renovation guidelines.  Most companies think green building is about products; while they are important, HammerSmith knows that the most effective solution is to design the appropriate green building techniques into the project from the start.  A timeless HammerSmith kitchen will always be better on the environment than a poorly designed kitchen packed with the latest eco products and green technology that is ripped out after five frustrating years.

Universal Design

Whether you think of handicapped, accessible, or aging in place, all of our designs take into consideration universal design elements that will insure ease of use and lasting value for your investment.  We all get older every day, and in the meantime we may find ourselves with temporary ailments and disabilities, or have a 2 year-old in the house.  We believe universal design should be considered and stylishly integrated into the overall design where appropriate--better lighting, zero-entry showers, wider doors and halls, etc.

Service

Many people think HammerSmith is only about high design and major undertakings.  Our clients still have small projects and special needs that have to be addressed, so our service department is here to help.  Whether our clients need a shower pan replacement, a playhouse, a new garage or they just need their gutters cleaned, we are there!

Maintenance

Many of our clients lead busy lives with pressures from work, family and travel, and prefer to leave the hassles of home maintenance to HammerSmith.  Let us custom design a cost-effective monthly, quarterly or annual program to proactively address your home's needs while you focus on the things that matter to you the most.
