A Legacy of Excellence
With 81 years of built projects in our portfolio, it's safe to say classic design will never go out of style.
The Macewen Group, Inc.
Harry A. “Bo” MacEwen, the founder of The MacEwen Group, Inc. decided to become an architect at the age of nine, when he began art lessons. During the ensuing years, he pursued this ambition by continuing art studies through grade school, high school, and college, including engineering construction and architectural design.
During MacEwen’s high school and early college years, he had the privilege of working with one of the South’s outstanding classicist architects - W. Elliott Dunwody, Jr. His education in classic architecture combined with exposure to traditional studies under Dunwody’s guidance and tutelage prepared him to formulate the basis for Hafner | Ferlita Architects’ range of architectural styles - from classic architectural treatment to contemporary designs.
Creative experience was the driving force behind the continuing architectural career of Harry A. MacEwen until his death in 2002. His enduring professional drive spanned more than 54 years and now is characterizes in a firm that truly enjoys the practice of architecture.
Today, the emphasis of Hafner Architects in Tampa remains the same as the philosophy of the young firm established in 1936…to provide an exceptional product and impeccable service combined with a reverence for budgetary, environmental, and regulatory considerations.
