Hal is a registered architect and head of Shelter’s Eau Claire office. With over 20 years of commercial experience Hal relishes bringing clients, coworkers, collaborators, designers, consultants, and contractors together to find creative design solutions. With a BA from the University of Minnesota and a Master of Architecture from Arizona State University, a large part of Hal’s passion for architecture is centered around bringing together the many talented and diverse people he is privileged to work with. He also has a passion for building local entrepreneurship and community arts and can regularly be found working in support of Eau Claire’s flourishing art and cultural scene. Hal’s interest in the intersection of culture and architecture is broad based. His extensive travel and, at times, residence in Central and South America have given him a global perspective on the impact that our individual actions as designers have on the greater society.
