Whitten Architects

Since 1986, Whitten Architects has been designing thoughtfully considered homes in New England. With a focus exclusively on residential design, we are experts in a variety of project types—from camps to cottages, new homes to historic renovations. Our work has won a number of awards over the years and has been extensively published in a variety of residential home design books and magazines.

Our like-minded team of five architects and three designers collectively offer decades of hands-on residential design and construction experience, as well as a common ethos: we believe a home should reflect its occupants, and its design should develop from an appreciation for and an understanding of its site. Using an efficient combination of hand-drawing and our office’s state-of-the-art software, we help our clients envision their home even before construction begins.

Note: We're finding that current home construction costs run $350-500 per square foot to achieve the results you see in our portfolio. This range is for the finished building only and is exclusive of design fees, site development, landscaping, furnishings, and soft costs (fees and permits).

Commented: Amazing house. Well done. How do you clean transom glass behind siding Good question. What appears to be glass in these photos is actually insect screening for the screen porches. The screens can be cleaned from the inside.
