We’re thrilled to share the news that we’ve been recognized as one of the Top 50 Coastal Architects in the United States by Ocean Home magazine for the 6th year running! Ocean Home’s annual collection of the best residential coastal architecture firms in the US celebrates the art, science, and spectacle created by designers developing exclusive waterfront residences.
Sun-drenched shorelines, gentle breezes, and breathtaking coastal views serve as a constant source of inspiration to SDH’s team. Our passion for creating spaces that integrate seamlessly with coastal environments has not only caught the eye of clients and design enthusiasts but has also garnered recognition from Ocean Magazine, earning a spot in their list of Top Coastal Architects for 2023.
Coastal living embodies a lifestyle that naturally fuses indoor and outdoor spaces while embracing the beauty and serenity of the waterfront. It requires a unique combination of design skills, experience and sensibilities to design and build custom homes close to one of the most beautiful (and unforgiving) forces of nature on Earth—the ocean. SDH are committed to capturing the essence of coastal living while mastering the art of crafting homes that celebrate such a unique way of life.
The secret to our success lies in our meticulous attention to detail, innovative use of materials, and a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities that coastal living presents. From stunning beachfront residences to serene homes on intracoastal waterways, our studio continues to demonstrate a unique ability to create architecture that evokes a sense of wonderment.
“We’re honored to be recognized once again by Ocean Magazine as one of the country’s top coastal architects,” says Stephanie Halfen, SDH’s visionary founder. “Our team works incredibly hard to craft designs that not only reflect the natural beauty of the coast but also enhance the quality of life for those fortunate enough to experience them.”
With new homes underway along the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean sea, and the Gulf of Mexico, SDH are looking forward to pushing the boundaries of design, innovation and sustainability in coastal communities into 2024 and beyond.
