Michael Hall, Founder
Having graduated from The Maryland Institute, (MICA), Michael worked for two local design firms before co-founding Swann/Hall Associates, in 1983, a residential and commercial design firm, where his projects included primary and secondary residences, commercial (banks, law firms), hospitality (hotels, restaurants) and golf clubs. In 2006, he established Hall & Co., Inc.
In addition to a depth of knowledge in Interior Design, through study, experience, and travel, Michael had a strong background in construction and building techniques and had a rapport in the field with architects, builders and other trades on projects ranging from new construction to complex renovations, both residential and commercial.
With an easy-going affable manner, Michael's design approach to each project was to interpret a client's aesthetic and personal style, rather than to impose a formulaic "look". His approach always resulted in an interior which was authentic and unique to each client - whether contemporary, transitional, or traditional, always with the goal of creating a comfortable, livable and unimposing interior.
Michael's comfortable manner and unique approach to each client is the foundation for which the agency was built and carries on today. His legacy lives on through the countless interiors he has touched, the knowledge he has passed onto the design community, including the team that represents Hall & Co. today.
