Architectural Services

Whether you’re adding an addition to your summer home in Sea Girt, building a new house in Belmar, or hoping to make interior renovations to the ground floor of your home in Bradley Beach, our team can help.

Our scope of work covers zoning review, programming, schematic design, preliminary design, construction/permit drawings, and construction administration. A thorough outline and direction give our clients the attention, guidance, and support they need to make their home project a success.

Successful architecture, pride of place, comes about by way of good communication, knowledge of the locale, and getting to know what makes our clients tick. There, too, is joy in the unexpected creation of components yet to be determined – an added special something that wasn’t in the program.

I feel we’ve done our job well when clients invite us to their homes once they’ve settled in to share in their happiness of living in the spaces we’ve created together. Most of our clients have become friends. For this, I am grateful. Their homes are part of us: Belmar, Avon, Spring Lake, Bradley, Sea Girt, Manasquan, Wall – this is home.

I am blessed to have taken part in the local renaissance of my community. This stretch of the Jersey Shore is unique and special. We are lucky to be stewards of it.

New Homes

M.B. Hearn Architecture specializes in designing stunning new homes for our clients. Our listen-first approach and our encouragement of client collaboration ensure that the most vital details and the key features you’re most excited about are acknowledged and are incorporated into your project. The result is a home that reflects your vision and meets, or hopefully exceeds, your expectations.

Additions and Alterations

If your current home or a residence you purchased has features worth preserving, you may consider adding an addition or altering the home to better suit your needs and goals rather than building a brand-new house.
