Hammer Design is a Boston-based, full-service landscape architectural firm established by Nelson R. Hammer, ASLA in 1992. The firm is dedicated to providing its clients with high quality, cost-effective landscape architectural services and maximum responsiveness to clients' wishes.

Prior to the formation of Hammer Design, Mr. Hammer spent 23 years with Boston area-based multi-disciplinary design firms. Virtually all that experience has been in support of architects, collaborating on the site planning of commercial, institutional, and educational facilities of all sizes. During this long association with architects, several areas of specialization have arisen:
· Educational facilities have been an important part of Mr. Hammer's work prior to the establishment of Hammer Design, from public elementary schools to individual university buildings and collegiate master plans.

· Health care facilities site planning, including nursing homes and assisted living facilities, have provided a significant portion of Mr. Hammer's practice over the years. He was the project manager for a number of major hospital projects while with The Architects Collaborative from 1969 to 1985, and has also undertaken landscape design services for more than a dozen elder care projects since establishing his own practice.

· Interior landscape design is a field in which Mr. Hammer has gained a national reputation through his design work, teaching, writing, and lecturing. He has written two books and more than 50 articles on the subject in national trade publications, and has lectured throughout the United States, in Canada, and in Australia.
The addition of a full-time staff member in the spring of 1998 has greatly increased the flexibility and productivity of our work, including the ability to prepare documents on CAD. Hammer Design offers clients a level of project expertise typically found only in larger firms, yet it delivers this expertise with the personal commitment and enthusiasm of a small firm. With an experienced principal involved in all aspects of the project, the potential success of each project is greatly enhanced.
