We offer a fresh approach to tradition.

Our work is inspired by the rich architectural history of New England and our desire to create living spaces which interact harmoniously with the natural world. Every project is as individual as each client and setting and provides comfortable, contemporary living in whatever style desired. 


  NEW CONSTRUCTION Over half of our work is new construction. Our close familiarity with the best of older buildings in the area gives us an enlightened perspective on the vernacular of the community. We design not only to reflect the needs and personality of the owners, but to compliment the natural environment and the built environment as well.

  PRESERVATION "Cultural heritage is not a renewable resource, so we must safeguard it in a sustainable manner, both on a local and global scale." - Stefan Simon, Yale University Due to our training in architectural history and our extensive experience in restoring the great cottages of Boston's North Shore area, we have established a strong reputation in preservation architecture. We are uniquely qualified to provide a complete range of services for all phases of preservation work and have been trusted with the restoration of many historically significant buildings throughout New England. Our philosophy is to go beyond bringing back the original by incorporating historically accurate and sensitive designs which will address an older structure's inefficiencies and revitalize it in keeping with today's lifestyles and conveniences.

  SMALL PROJECTS Small projects can be stand-alone buildings or a part of a larger architectural composition. There is a freedom in small projects that allows for design innovation and spontaneity. An inspired design can transform an average dwelling into one that is unified. We enjoy small projects because of the immediacy of their design and construction.

  INTERIOR DESIGN Our distinctive interiors complement our high level of architectural design and construction. All aspects of interior details, customization, and finishes are incorporated into the overall design. Throughout the process, we work to enhance what is most important to the home owner. Interior design is offered in collaboration with our architectural projects and as an independent service.

  RENOVATIONS Although renovations do not offer the freedom of new construction, we particularly enjoy these projects because they allow us to combine our extensive knowledge of historic architecture with the challenge of incorporating the best of today's comforts and conveniences into an appropriate solution to suit the family's lifestyle.

  LANDSCAPE DESIGN Creative site planning is the art of unification. It forms the exquisite link between architecture, the natural world and us. The relationship between architecture and its environment is fundamental to the success of each. Our sustainable designs consider the preservation of natural features and plantings to create harmony between architecture and landscape.
