Battle Associates, Architects
11 Reviews
At Battle Associates, we specialize in inspired design. We translate your dreams to create a space in sync with your sense of beauty and needs for functionality, while maintaining your site’s sense of place. Whether we are designing an addition, renovation or new construction for a private residence or an educational institution, we transform your vision into reality.

PHILOSOPHY
We are dedicated to design and client service, balancing our commitment to unique design with our commitment to accommodating each client’s lifestyle and needs.

Our designs grow from a specific sense of place. Organizing each project to celebrate the strengths of its site, ranging from sun exposure, to views, to water’s edge, we develop our architecture to capitalize on these assets, while creating inside spaces that are comfortable yet exceptional experiences for our clients. We consider ourselves to be problem-solvers, reconciling the constraints of lifestyle, budget and site, while staying true to our design
philosophy.

Our client service reflects our commitment to give each client particular attention. We are committed to listen and to respond, throughout the design process, and beyond.

EXPERIENCE
In our thirty years of practice, we have designed residential and academic work throughout New England, as well projects ranging from Florida to Canada. Our specialty has been creating exciting design work in an historic vocabulary, with many projects in Historic Districts throughout New England.

Principal John Battle is a graduate of the Harvard Graduate School of Design. His designs have been widely featured in various magazines and television broadcasts.

STORIES
George, a client, really wanted to categorize me throughout the job— traditionalist, modernist, etc. At the end of the job, he declared me a Humanist. “You are always thinking about how it was to use the spaces”, where did you want to read the Sunday paper, what do the handrails feel like, how is this going to work for the family, etc. All that added up to the label of Humanist, which I graciously accept. Much better than a style label. They have hired us for 3 more projects over 15 years.
