Established in 1885

What drives us


Our mission at HLW is to question the norm, design with passion, and build what’s next. We were established in 1885 and have continuously evolved to stay at the forefront of architecture and design. From designing the first dedicated telephone building in New York City to our current work with mega tech companies, HLW has a legacy of combining elegant aesthetics with innovative technologies.

What we do best


We like to say at HLW that our work tells your story. With this in mind, we avoid a ‘one size fits all’ approach. We believe that by developing a deep knowledge of your organization and where it aims to be in the future, we can deliver a space that reflects your mission, culture, and values.

Who we are

Meet The Team
