From the Heart

For us, design is personal. We view each project as being entrusted to us by our clients and we take the role of designer to heart. Buildings touch lives, they do far more than provide shelter; they provide context for living. There is a feeling we want you to experience in each space. Something we cannot express with words, so we express it with passion. From our hearts to yours, we invite you to walk in and experience the spaces we create.

Our Clients.

Hartman Design Group has been a trusted partner for us on several large projects and on each occasion has provided a timeless design and memorable spaces for our residents. The Hartman team’s grasp of innovative design solutions, ever-changing amenity trends, and willingness to think outside of the box when approaching a project makes them a critical member of our project teams, leading to numerous design awards and more importantly amenity spaces that we are all proud of.

Hartman Design Group has the capability to deliver first-class results. Paradigm Management Company has undertaken several renovation projects (and several more planned) with HDG and we have been extremely pleased with the finished product. Their attention to detail in every area, from design drawings to furniture selection, reflects a level of experience and capability not found with other design organizations.

Alice Barrett, Vice President
Paradigm Management

When SJG Properties began to assemble a top-notch team to join us in restoring The Woodward Building in Washington, DC, the clear choice for an interior design firm was HDG. Known for their high standards and meticulous attention to detail while holding true to a client's vision and budget constraints, HDG worked seamlessly with the entire renovation team of architects, engineers, and contractors to reincarnate The Woodward Building from a nearly 20th-century office building to luxurious apartments. We can't wait to work with the HDG team again on a future projects.

Paradigm has partnered with HDG for over 15 years & the trust established during those years has led to a distinct design aesthetic & product branding that brings out the best in each property. HDG is dedicated to creating, renewing and transforming amenity areas to bring a dramatic effect to each space through their effective use of color, materials & design elements. As always, the collaborative efforts of HDG & Paradigm produce well-executed projects that consistently exceed our expectations & sets a new level of standards.

HDG's design aesthetic consistently elevates the caliber of community enjoyed by our residents while consciously contributing to creating healthy, beautiful and affordable amenity spaces that contribute to the greening of our planet. Always keeping an eye on the bottom line, The Galaxy Apartments are equally attractive to both new and existing residents; and the happiness of our staff has increased with their improved surroundings. Another successful HDG collaboration.

We partnered with Hartman Design Group to transform an existing, 20-year-old multifamily building to a Class A apartment community that competes with new product. They exceeded our expectations. The space is now a stunning urban living experience with all of the amenities that today's resident demands including multiple co-working spaces, a dramatic lobby, a sports bar and a brand new state of the art fitness center. The feedback from residents and our investment team has been overwhelmingly positive.

There is a reason why Hartman Design Group is considered among the best. Phyllis Hartman's vision is just beyond. The company's attention to detail is top-notch and they were very easy to work with throughout the process. Phyllis' staff was there every step of the way and showed great professionalism. They provided a high-quality product. Very happy with the outcome!
