Jim Hill of Urban Pioneering is fantastic! Lots of great, creative ideas that work here in NYC, and specializes in "green", sustainable  architecture.

We found Jim Hill and Urban Pioneering off Freelancer's Union website in 2007 and after interviewing a few people I chose him for an apartment reno and was so glad I did. He is intelligent, conscientious an has a fine aesthetic sense. He is also scrupulous with structural details. He was fair in his pricing and actually charged me less than our contract when he did less. The job came out well and Jim was a pleasure to work with at all moments. I highly recommend him.

From our first meeting, it was clear that Jim would put his all into our job. Throughout a long design and build time frame he never flagged. I'm sure we weren't the easiest clients--- lots of opinions, evolving needs, impatient with delays, heavily involved. His good humor and steady guidance under pressure were greatly appreciated. Renovating any 120 year old building is full of surprises--- our project certainly had its share of twists and turns. JIm anticipated many potential problems and the issues he couldn't have seen coming, he handled admirably. One example— during he course of construction Jim discovered a potentially unsafe structural condition that could have cost a fortune to correct if the most obvious solution were pursued. Instead, he and his engineering team came up with a brilliantly simple alternate approach that corrected the irregularity for a marginal cost. Jim was able to work well with the tradesman, insisting on professionalism without getting into ego games, confident in his knowledge and still open to alternate solutions. He is thoroughly versed in the intricacies of the applicable building codes, skilled in the various crafts, resourceful and professional. What was most gratifying is that he clearly took a personal stake in the success of the project. Late hours, early mornings, many site visits and trips to the D.O.B.; without his dedication, we would not have the home we have today.

Sarah Hill is an extremely creative, resourceful and responsive interior designer. She gets your taste. One instance -- I had a beautiful old Chinese lantern and rather than buying a new silk Italian replica, she recommended and found a specialty lamp shade maker who electrified the lantern and inserted a silk cylindrical shade, It is gorgeous and means a lot to me as I love antiques. She also finds fantastic fabrics that surprise you and works well with upholsterers and carpenters. Whether you know your taste or not, she is a great sounding board, open to trying different materials and exploring different options. I love slate floors and mine in the kitchen was getting really worn. She found a mineral tile that had all the richness and natural look of slate yet is durable and looks great. She also found a countertop that transformed the kitchen and is skilled at working with what you have and love and integrating it with other elements that make the room work. She has great taste and knows every resource. And if she doesn't she'll find it. And she is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her.

Jim is a talented architect and a trusted resource in the renovation process. We reached out to Jim when we were considering a bid on our current home. We knew that it would need a comprehensive renovation, so before making a bid we needed to take that into account. Without being a client of his, Jim took the time out to meet with us and provide his thoughts on scope and pricing, which allowed us to move quickly on the bid and ultimately close on the house. We engaged Jim for the project and found his work to be detailed and thorough, and always open to our feedback on the design and budget. Jim also works with a number of contractors, which made the bid process for the renovation work a straightforward process. He guided us on that decision as well. In the end, we are so pleased with how our house has turned out, and while a renovation is never without its ups and downs, we were able to rely on Jim throughout.


WHY US

Q. Why does your work stand out from others?
A. We approach every project as an opportunity to create a unique design, specifically tailored to the clients' needs and desires.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. Treating each project as a one of a kind design makes every project an interesting and exciting opportunity for new, creative designs.
Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.
A. Most of our work is custom residential design. Being located in New York means that most of those projects are additions to and gut renovations of Manhattan and Brooklyn brownstones or row houses.
Q. What is your greatest strength?
A. Our greatest strength is our approach to design. We recognize that each project is a unique reflection of the homeowner, and each homeowner has their own style. We help the homeowner determine their own style and work to bring that out in the design.
Q. Do you do anything to stay up on the latest developments in your field?
A. We are constantly researching building products and technologies. I have been a LEED accredited professional for years and have been developing knowledge and use of Passive Haus technologies to provide extremely energy efficient construction in a cost effective methodology.
Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.
A. We have recently completed a new 5,000 square foot home in a landmarked area of Brooklyn, as well as several other major gut renovations and additions to residences in Brooklyn.
Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?
A. I fell in love with architecture early in high school and have never looked back. It's my passion and I cannot imagine doing anything else.
