Overseeing the partnership of form and function, Gary Justiss serves as the lead Hampstead Town Architect, helping to guide the review of homes and town center buildings as the community takes shape.
Gary works alongside Andrés Duany of DPZ and Hampstead's Architectural Review Committee (ARC) to ensure the continued growth of Hampstead compliments the long-term master plan of the community and the existing structures.
Hampstead has a list of Approved Architects whose work and standards are of proven long-term value for both the community and building owners. A prospective homebuyer using an approved architect may submit plans to the ARC for expedited review.
Residents and homebuyers may request an architect not on the approved list be considered for approval. However, the ARC makes final determination of approval based on an architect's portfolio of work, and dependent on the compatibility and experience of the architect with the Hampstead vision and New Urbanist design form.
Architects can submit to the ARC for inclusion in the list. Submissions should include contact information, resumé, visual examples of residential or commercial work, website, and experience within New Urbanist and traditional urban settings. Submissions should be emailed to the Hampstead ARC by clicking here.
