“We have been working with SDH from North Carolina. Stephanie and Cristina are talented, easy to work with and very reasonable in price. Although we like a contemporary look, we wanted something a little more farm/modern with contemporary elements. Stephanie seemed excited and ready for the challenge! She came straight away to NC to walk the lot and take pictures (this was all during Christmas vacation)! I am extremely picky so I definitely wasn’t her easiest client and not living in Fl made it somewhat challenging. None the less, they worked very hard at understanding our vision and drawing up a beautiful home for us! We look forward to seeing the final product! We thank you both very much”  Cindy Sokal

“Stephanie Halfen is an incredibly talented Architect and Interior Designer. 
The minute we saw the cover of Florida Design’s MIAMI Home and Decor (Spring/Summer 2015) we knew we would be working with her firm.
From our first meeting Stephanie understood what we were looking for and was able to translate it into a design that exceeded all our expectations.
The professionals at SDH were wonderful. They worked closely with us making sure every detail was taken care of.
We look forward to moving into our new home in 2018. Thank you SDH for making this process such and enjoyable experience. ”

“We have hired SDH studio to design a luxury 6500sf spec home. Stephanie, architect and owner, is a pleasure to work with. Extremely professional, understood exactly what we wanted, very communicative and doesn’t let anything in her way to deliver what we needed. Very pleasant, direct and honest.
Choosing the right architect for your project can be challenging. You want them to be available to answer your questions (and there are lots of them along the way). Stephanie always gets back within a timely manner. Having the right person on board makes the mission easier. Stephanie was the first of three architects we interviewed and we are extremely happy with her performance.”

“When you are building your home, it is really hard to find the right words to describe your needs, desires, and expectations because sometimes you don’t even know exactly. Stephanie has the talent and the sensitivity to bring all those words and ideas to life. We believe this stems from her characteristics as an individual and a professional that differentiate her from most architects. The humbleness in her personality, her high ethics and standards, her creativity, her empathetic style in understanding her client’s needs, and her genuine concern for what the client truly wants, have made it so easy for us to work with her. Stephanie will deliver the work effectively, professionally, and with something that we personally value the most: genuine and honest commitment and dedication..”
