      Q&A with David Hacin

      Where do you find design inspiration?
      As a Boston-based firm, we draw inspiration from both contemporary and historic sources. We enjoy the contrasts between those resources, that can highlight the best of each one.

      How do you approach the design process?
      The design process is very intimate with our clients. We begin with careful analysis of their needs. As architects and interior designers we collaborate to ensure that our clients’ needs, both functional and artistic, are met.

      How does your aesthetic stand out amongst other designers/architects?
      Our work shows our interest in expressing a contemporary identity, and the seamless aesthetic between the architecture and interior design speaks to the collaboration between the integrated architecture and interior design teams at H+A.

      What is the greatest value you provide your client?
      We listen.

      What is your biggest challenge as a designer/architect?
      The biggest challenge we have as a design firm of integrated disciplines is creating a modern casual flow within historic homes while still preserving their integrity.

      What does the Sub-Zero and Wolf Kitchen Design Contest mean to you?
      We believe Sub-Zero and Wolf represent the finest in functionality in kitchen appliances and we are proud to be recognized by companies we admire and respect.

      Where do you see kitchen design going in the next 5 years?
      Kitchen cabinetry as furniture is going to continue to be developed and expanded as a concept, until the separation between kitchen and the rest of the house feels seamless.
