A registered architect since 1986, Harrison Gill grew up in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Son and Grandson of architects, he co-founded the Norwalk-based architecture and design firm, GILL & GILL ARCHITECTS with his wife, Patricia K Gill, AIA in 1990. The firm has designed hundreds of residential projects in Connecticut and throughout the northeast. In 1997 the couple formed a second design venture, Gill, Ackermann and Associates, specializing in corporate interiors, commercial buildings and institutional design. Mr. Gill received his Bachelors Degree in Architecture from the University of Virginia in 1982. He also studied Architecture at the Architectural Association in London and the Parsons School of Design in New York, settling in Norwalk in 1988 after working for several years in Stamford, Connecticut and New York City.

Mr. Gill recently designed the award winning Levy-Gall Building in South Norwalk, Connecticut, the first important new office building and urban infill project to be erected in this vibrant area in decades. The building has won praise from many, including the Norwalk Redevelopment Commission and the Greater Norwalk Chamber of Commerce for its bold interpretation of traditional urban architectural elements. Mr. Gill has designed dozens of new houses in Connecticut and elsewhere. He has received seven separate awards from the Connecticut Association of Home Builders since 1997, including a special citation in 2002 for the Salvatore Residence, a 13,000 square foot custom home in New Canaan. His work has been featured repeatedly on the Curb Appeal program broadcast nationally on the HGTV Network. His work has been published in several books, including Suburban Renewal (2000) and Updating Ranches (2003). His work has appeared frequently in the regional press and professional journals.

Mr. Gill is registered to practice architecture in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. He is also a registered Interior Designer in Connecticut. He is a member of the American Institute of Architects, AIA Connecticut and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. His distinguished residential work has gained wide-spread praise in the communities of Greenwich, Darien, New Canaan, Westport and Weston. His projects have been featured prominently on recent open-house tours in Darien, Westport and New Canaan. GILL & GILL ARCHITECTS has become noted in recent years for the design of fine Shingle Style residences that draw inspiration from the traditional American residences of northeastern coastal communities like Newport, Watch Hill, Greenwich, and East Hampton.

Active in the Norwalk Community, the Gills have five children, the oldest of whom is a Midshipman at the U.S. Naval Academy and a noted sailboat racer. Mr. Gill served as a trustee with the Unitarian Universalist Society of Stamford before joining the First Congregational Church of Norwalk where he served on the church council and as a deacon. An avid sailor, Mr. Gill is a longstanding member of the Cedar Point Yacht Club in Westport, Connecticut, recognized as one of the finest sailboat racing clubs on the East Coast.

With a current staff of eight, GILL & GILL ARCHITECTS has had offices on Wall Street in the traditional heart of Norwalk, Connecticut since 1993. Mr. Gill has a passionate interest in the redevelopment of Norwalk with a particular emphasis on the urban waterfront neighborhoods along the Norwalk River and the Wall Street district.
