Vermont's Innovative Architects and Building Designers
The buildings of Turner Brooks Architect are known for their successful response to different site conditions, programs, and budgets. The emphasis is on innovative design, ecological, and economically sound solutions. The work has been widely featured in both books and architectural journals here and abroad. In 1995 Princeton Architectural Press published the monograph: Turner Brooks: Work. Several houses have been published in Architectural Record magazine’s annual “Record Houses” issue. Many of the institutional projects, including the Gilder Boathouse for Yale University, were won in invited architectural competitions. Turner has lectured on his work throughout the United States and abroad. With each new project, we come prepared to listen to the client with an attitude of discovering the possibilities that are offered by the program and site. More often than not it is the friction between program and site that makes a design begin to ‘percolate’ and take form. The realities of budget and time almost always enter in as ‘referees’ to this friction. In the initial stages of a design project, we explore several different design alternatives with the client. We believe this is the best way to develop the most appropriate response to a given program. In the design process, we generate a series of physical models to clearly communicate both inside space and exterior form. We take pride in our thorough construction drawings and specifications as well as in the careful management and supervision of the construction process. Through careful siting, selection of appropriate and sustainable materials and systems, our buildings strive to tread lightly on the planet.

Turner Brooks is an artist whose medium is livable, affordable, and accessible architecture. Only choose Brooks for your project if you want an architect who has an exceptional eye for light and space; loves stairs; is not afraid to push you a little; and chooses solutions that rely on design rather than high end finishes and current expensive gimmicks. Brooks has been designing and building homes in the NE for 40 years; they are sound, functional structures, adapted to the needs and requirements of the environment, landscape, owners and their families. I have a Turner Brooks home in the Adirondacks; it is stunning, comfortable, and easy to live in. I enthusiastically endorse and recommend Turner.
