Harboe Architects
Historic view of the Haskell/Barker Building


Harboe Architects, PC was started in March 2006 by T. Gunny Harboe, AIA. Previous to starting his own firm, Mr. Harboe spent over seventeen years at McClier (which became Austin/AECOM) where he gained a national reputation for his dedication to preservation ideals along with his ability to find appropriate solutions to design and technical challenges related to preserving our cultural heritage. Key Harboe Architect staff members, Bob Score, AIA, and Mark Kasprzyk worked with Mr. Harboe for a number of years before joining him in the new firm. Our restoration work has been recognized with over two dozen awards, including several awards from the National AIA, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. We have completed significant restoration projects on over a half dozen National Historic Landmarks as well as numerous other local landmarks and National Register Properties.

Whether a historic resource requires preservation, restoration, rehabilitation or adaptive reuse, we approach the problem with the highest level of appreciation for the historic resource and the needs of the building owner to attain a renewed usefulness of the structure. It is our ability to balance the retention and enhancement of what is significant about a historic building with need to allow it to be used to its full potential that has brought us recognition from the profession and loyalty from our clients.
