Gail Hallock Cyr

Owner/Principal – Gail Hallock Architect, Inc.


Some people dream about the perfect home – and some people dream, put pen to paper, and create it. Gall Hallock Cyr, an architect in Wickford Village, makes dream homes a reality. Her business, Gail Hallock Architect, specializes in elegant, modern home designs in coastal and inland Rhode Island. “I’m proud that I have satisfied clients who feel that their homes are beautiful, and easy to live in and love,” Gail says.

For Gail, who graduated from RISD with degrees in Architecture and Fine Arts, constructing spaces was always in the family. “I became an architect because my father was an architect,” she says. When he retired, she started her own successful, women-run firm. All that experience means that clients find Gail easy to work with, responsive to their needs and in possession of a huge network of resources to help get projects completed. Currently, her firm is designing two net-zero houses (meaning that the houses rely on renewable energy created on-site, rather than pulling energy from the grid) and several properties being built in the flood zones along the coast of Rhode Island that will be well integrated into the landscape and neighborhood. “I love the ability to see what I’ve designed come to fruition,” Gail says. “I can actually drive by what I drew on the computer, and have it built, and be beautiful.”
