Couture Design Associates
Architects and Building Designers in Providence, RI
"Couture Design Associates was contracted to design a bungalow in the East Greenwich historic district, with the proviso that it appear as if it was built in 1910. JP Couture was creative with the limited space available for the project as well as the overall design. He took time to learn how we live, what we were seeking, and prepared an elegant design that included what we wanted and is perfect for our lifestyle. He participated in the entire process, from approvals to interior design, serving as a terrific negotiator, mediator, and advocate. We found it a pleasure to work with JP and all of the staff at Couture Design Associates, and would highly recommend them for any project!"

Mark Lawton Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Providence, RI
"We hired Lawton Design Studio to renovate a house we had just bought. Mark designed my dream kitchen and turned a crummy in-law apartment into an upscale master suite - walk in closet and fabulous bathroom included. It's now almost two years later and we're still thrilled with the work. The kitchen is perfect for both intimate family dinners and large scale entertaining. And our master suite is a blessed oasis to which we happily retire every night. In fact, I don't like to travel as often as I used to because the accommodations rarely compare with what we have at home! Perhaps most importantly, however, is that we stayed on budget and fantastically on schedule - I gave no wiggle room on the end date and, impressively, everything was finished the day before. Moving and renovating a house is typically not fun or easy, but working with LDS was great. I completely trusted LDS to do the work well and give us a great finished product and we were not disappointed."

Andreozzi Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Providence, RI
"With the Andreozzi team on board, our renovations were beyond what we could have imagined - our space was opened up, more natrual light was brought in, and the updated kitchen and master bath shine. If experience, design thinking, attention to detail, and close coordination with your project are what you are looking for, give them a call!"

David Sisson Architecture PC

Foley Fiore Architecture

"We worked with Foley Fiore Architects on a custom home in a suburb west of Boston. As the general contractor's site supervisor I worked very closely with them and can attest that their approach is collaborative, solutions oriented and client driven. Their staff is highly professional and pays tremendous attention to detail and client service. We look forward to working with them again."

Patrick Ahearn Architect
Architects and Building Designers in Providence, RI
"Before we hired Patrick Ahearn Architects to design the renovations for our historic home in Edgartown (Martha's Vineyard), we did a lot of research about who we should hire. We chose PA Architects because of their previous work on the island and with historic homes. We had no idea that we would get personalized service from Patrick Ahearn himself and that he would be so responsive and available during the entire process. Their designs were thoughtful, functional and beautiful. The firm was very professional in their execution of the work and gave us all of the deliverables on time. Patrick's handling of the historic district approvals, coastal commission approvals and zoning approvals was nothing short of mastery!! Don't consider anyone else!!"
- dbreier
Hammer Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Providence, RI
"Mark Hammer and Don DiRocco (Hammer Architects) listen for what their clients seem to want - and then deliver - responsively, but boldly. I wanted a great big, airy, open style living, kitchen dining area - for a house where we would entertain. What I had was a house with low ceilings, tired finishes and no front door. Mark put pencil to paper and in very short order, opened up the space, raised the ceiling, added beams and pendant lights, and designed an inviting and exciting entryway that sparks a "Whoa!" and a "Wow" from everyone who gets through the front door. Don designed the kitchen and bathrooms, helped us choose and place all fixtures, paid attention to the smallest details, and made no mistakes. Our house got built on time and on budget. We're thrilled."

How do I find the best Providence architect for my home design project?


It is best to hire a home architect who will be involved in all phases of the design process, from the initial concept to the completed construction. The architect is often the first person you will hire for your project. If necessary, they might also help you select and hire Rhode Island subcontractors, which can include the builders, engineers and landscaper. Interior architects are also involved in negotiating contracts for all involved participants. It is for these reasons that it is extremely important for you to have a good relationship with the Providence residential architect you hire. He or she can be the tie-breaking vote between you and the general contractor and can be your biggest advocate during the construction process. Different architecture firms in Providence, RI provide different services, so the scope of the work can span from pre-design environmental impact studies to selecting furniture and finishes, depending on what your specific needs are.

What sort of process can I expect from a residential architect?


As far as the process goes, the architecture firm or individual that you choose will start with concept drawings and finish with construction drawings and documents. Some firms even design with 3D renderings and videos, but that should not be assumed. There should be plenty of meetings between you and your building designer until you have agreed upon a design that you are completely happy with. Always keep in mind that the designer will have building codes to follow, and likely pre-existing design limitations when dealing with a remodel, so while they might not be able to execute your exact ideas they always have your safety and aesthetics in mind. One of the most important duties of a residential architect is to serve as managers and supervise most aspects of construction, as well as facilitate communication between all other contractors, so you can expect them to be present throughout the entire building process to ensure everything is executed as planned.

It is very important to hire the right professional for the job. Remember that the most well-known or established designer might not provide the best architectural services for your needs. It all comes down to the individual project. Research and ask people whose work you like for recommendations. It's important to have somewhat of an idea of the style of house architecture that you prefer, as well as the amount you would like to spend. Residential architects in Providence, RI are natural problem solvers. They will assess the entire situation and help you to solve your problems too. Don't settle for a single company too early. Call and interview a few. Make sure that you feel like your personalities will mesh well and that you like their professional perspective.

Questions to ask prospective Providence interior architects:


  • What is your fee structure?
  • What does the cost include?
  • Do you have professional liability insurance?
  • Can you handle my special requests (ADA, LEED etc.)?
  • What types of renderings (3D, video, illustrative) will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When do you expect to start and be finished with the project?
  • What do your services include? (It's best that the services are until construction is completed.)
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Would you say your work has a defining style? (This is important in case the architect's personal style will interfere with your vision.)
  • Will you help with hiring a general contractor and subcontractors?
  • What do you estimate the cost will be?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any complications you foresee with this project?
