Domestic Architecture
6 Reviews
We are a nationally recognized boutique, full-service architecture firm with a unique point of view. Our aesthetic approach is guided by memory and iconic forms, resulting in structures that are at once familiar and reassuring yet challenging to place within any one particular style or period. Founding Principal, artist Roy McMakin, a self trained designer, is known for his innovative blurring of art, furniture, and architecture. For us, our client's personalities and needs, as well as the project site, are what fuel our idea development. Over the years we have been featured in: The New York Times, The LA Times, Architectural Digest, Dwell and Wallpaper.

Commented: I'm curious about the door sculpture. I love it! Roy designed the bronze door fountain piece specifically for this water feature. It is slowly turning a deep green patina which is exciting. Time is tough to design in!

Commented: Love the combination of styles...beautiful! What was the inspiration? We love studying forms and historic styles and then mixing them up - a little. It makes one question when exactly the building was constructed.
