SIDNEY D. HAYNES
PRESIDENT / DESIGNER
Sidney grew up in Macon, Georgia which is also where his love for historic buildings and art began as a young boy. He moved to Savannah, Georgia and obtained a degree in Architecture and Interior Design with emphasis on Historic Preservation from Savannah College of Art and Design in 1986. During his senior year at Savannah College of Art and Design he studied in Italy which continues to be reflected in his design work today. After college he returned to Macon and worked for a local interior designer for a year, spent another two years specializing in lighting design with an engineering firm, and then worked for five years with a local architecture firm before starting SDH Design Solutions in 1992. Sidney proudly brings 27 years of design experience to his projects which now have been completed in Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Utah.
Sidney is an avid cyclist and loves the outdoors. He spends his free time in North Georgia with his family at his mountain cabin in the woods.
