Gregory Alan Hall Obituary

Greg Hall

May 16, 1960 - June 29, 2019

SAF joins in expressing great sadness after hearing of the untimely death of Sarasota architect Greg Hall on June 29. Greg  was a passionate preservationist whose focus on Sarasota’s mid-century modern structures has helped ensure that this city’s rich architectural heritage will endure. He was a good friend to the organization and in turn made many friends through it. We will miss his wise counsel and support.

Gregory Alan Hall was born May 16, 1960, in Boston. From his earliest teen years, Greg held firm to his vision of becoming an architect. Graduating with a Masters in Architecture in 1986 from the University of Florida, with a focus on Historic Preservation and Restoration, he proceeded to fulfill his professional dream with over thirty years of successful architectural contributions, both in Florida and nationwide. Before starting his own design firm, Greg worked for several large and small architectural firms in Cape Canaveral, Jacksonville, and Sarasota Florida. In 2003 Greg founded Hall Architects where he served as President and Principal Architect. His work was founded on the belief that architects are stewards of the built environment, responsible for enriching the community through well-considered, creative, and dedicated work. This focus earned Greg and the team of architects at Hall Architects much professional acclaim.
