Giants in the Dirt

NYC Architect + Interior Designer


Giants in the Dirt is the Architecture and Design office of Elizabeth Hardwick, RA. For the past 18 years we have had the privilege of working on an array of residential and commercial projects in the New York Metropolitan area. Giants in the Dirt has experience designing Yoga Centers, restaurants, nightclubs, retail establishments, residences, and commercial and residential buildings.

We develop each project with imaginative use of spatial organization, innovative materials and a sense of artistry to compliment and create lifestyle. We treat our clients with the utmost care and synthesize solutions by listening carefully to our clients’ needs and wishes. As urban designers, we appreciate the melding of energies in the city and look to special creative efforts in a variety of areas as sources of inspiration. Our philosophy embraces a myriad of cultural stimuli including: fine food and wine, art and music, nature and the built environment.

Elizabeth is a student of yoga, and has been featured in Yoga Journal magazine. Her interest in body, mind, and the delight of the senses informs her architecture practice. Our office is home to two tangerine canaries and one white dove. These mascots invite laughter and levity to our days and the experience of our clients.
