Every Lab Needs



HFR Design began in 1910 in Nashville, TN when a young architect named Russell Hart left New York for Nashville to oversee the construction of the Hermitage Hotel. Nearly a decade after Hart’s arrival, he joined forces with engineers F. Eugene Freeland and Martin S. Roberts to form Nashville’s first major architectural and engineering firm. Our founders set the precedent for the values we hold true today – innovative design, strong client relationships, and collaborative processes that foster truly great results.


At HFR, we believe that our history is bridged with our future through communication, adaptability, technology, and integrity. We have the rare privilege of welcoming innovation and retaining the best of our distinguished history through our work with clients across the country.
