My family contracted with Dave Hart when we decided to put an addition on our lakefront home. We had a general idea of what we were looking to do, and Dave incorporated our ideas into our dream home. He was very thorough, professional in his approach, and presented a variety of options for us to consider from concept to construction drawings and through the bidding process. We did not use his services for project management of the construction phase (we had construction folks in our family), but that didn’t stop Dave from coming to the job site anyway just to check on “his” project.

As a lakefront property, there were the expected regulations, high water setback restrictions, and expansion limitations. Dave was on the front lines with the town’s code enforcement officer to address these regulations while minimizing the impact to the overall project.

In all, I would absolutely recommend Dave and would use him again if I had another construction project.

Hiring the right architect to design our dream master addition was critical to making it a reality. David Hart worked closely with us to ensure that all of our wishes were incorporated into the plan and partnered with us through to completion. We especially valued David's review of the progress and the way he worked closely with our contractor. The final result has exceeded our high expectations!

I just wanted to tell you how much Randi and I enjoyed working with you on our recent basement renovation project. The drawings you provided were right on in terms of what we wanted as a final product maximizing every available square foot of space in our basement.

To be a good architect, it takes not only strong technical skills but also the ability to listen to the client and capture customer requirements on paper. Both my wife and I can testify that Fish Street Design and its principal David Hart provided both the technical prowess and the ability to determine and exceed customer requirements. It was a great pleasure working with David Hart and Fish Street Design.

We are so pleased that we chose Fish Street Design for our lake house renovation project. Dave’s design expertise allowed us to transform a “ho hum” cottage into the house of our dreams! His creativity, attention to our needs as well as good architectural design, and his commitment to the project from start to finish was invaluable. Like many renovation projects, there were significant challenges and they would have been insurmountable without Dave’s help. Finally, and by no means least, Dave’s engaging good-nature made the whole process a lot of fun.

My wife and I have worked with multiple architects over the years including several residential projects , in both Maine and an NH with Dave Hart. Communication between client and architect is about as critical as any conversation you can have, because when you’re talking about building a house, you’re talking about your dreams, the dynamics of people, their interaction with spaces and environmental condition. David excels at bringing all aspects of this process to a project while exhibiting a balance between listening, recommending and professionalism. David Hart, from Fish Street Design, comes with our highest recommendation.
