Our little firm was founded in 1992 by Julia Caswell Daitch, and since that time it has completed many projects in the mid-Atlantic region. In 1995 the National Association of the Remodeling Industry awarded us best renovation-specialty remodeling for the Southeast USA. Since that time we have been published in the Washington Post, Better Homes and Gardens, and Fine Homebuilding. Throughout the years a mantra has developed within our design style; to create personal sanctuaries as an expression of self. At Caswell Daitch Architects we believe that Architecture is much more than building. As Frank Lloyd Wright once said “I believe a house is more a home by being a work of art.” It is this artful shaping of space, not merely the materialization of a structure, that we pride ourselves in. We believe that good architecture has the potential to lighten our environment and better our lives. Our attention to detail allows us to create homes that are both personal sanctuaries and a reflection of the client upon the world.

Frederick Taylor, the owner and principal creative designer has over 30 years in the field of architecture. Mr. Taylor received his bachelor or Environmental Design in Architecture from North Carolina State University in 1984, and began his internship at Clark, Tribble, Harris, and Li in Charlotte, NC. He went on to earn a Master of Architecture at Yale in 1989 and worked for Hartman-Cox Architects in Washington until establishing Frederick Taylor, AIA in 1998. We build on the foundation of the past. My experience in the practice of architecture has given me both a deep appreciation for and a solid grounding in traditional design, particularly in styles of classical origin. Accordingly, my work is shaped by historical precedent, whether the immediate precedent of an existing structure or the larger precedent of the architectural canon. I strive not to “invent” new details or to create a signature style, but rather to assemble and adapt motifs that are familiar and recognizable in a manner that is aesthetically pleasing, functional, and responsive to context. An addition to a 1930’s Dutch Colonial may not replicate every detail of the original, however it will be “of a piece” with it. Modern design has its own canon of precedents however, and it too should be respected when that is the context. Considerably more freedom exists when designing an entirely new structure. A new house can – and should – reflect the values and tastes of the age in which it was created, and may draw its inspiration from a variety of sources, both traditional and contemporary. Nevertheless, the new structure still bears an obligation to respect the larger context of its neighborhood and region.

Broadhurst Architects, Inc. was established in 2001 as a full service architectural firm with a major focus on high quality residential projects of various scales and programs. Broadhurst Architects has gained a reputation for assisting their clients to achieve well developed, functional, and comfortable spaces that add to their enjoyment of their homes and add pleasure to their lives. Upon receipt of his Masters Degree from the University of Maryland in 1985, Jeffery Broadhurst continued his practical education and development in the office of his Masters Thesis advisor, Stephen Muse, FAIA, and also profited from his association with Gregory Wiedemann, AIA, during their years of partnership. Mr. Broadhurst served as an associate in the firm and benefited from fourteen years of exceptional experience on a multitude of often published and award winning projects. The design philosophy of Broadhurst Architects, Inc. is that all work should be thoughtfully considered, and that the projects should be designed so that they are respectful of their surroundings. Thoughtful consideration includes several aspects. Foremost, an effective architect must be a good listener. Thoughtful design starts with a clear understanding of the client’s concerns, lifestyle, and goals. Successful projects are generated from an open, honest, and collaborative relationship between the owner, the architect, and eventually the contractor. Thoughtful design often means considering various ways that the client’s goals can be achieved. These options are then discussed and the discussions guide the project in the most appropriate direction. Thoughtful design also means careful, realistic consideration of the project relative to the project budget. Broadhurst Architects, Inc. believes that projects should be respectful of their surroundings and context. For some projects, such as an addition to a fine old home, this might mean that the addition is designed to be respectful to the original residence. Building materials, roof shapes, connections, etc., are thoughtfully considered to achieve an appropriate, integrated, and often seamless whole. Projects should also be respectful of their sites, their adjacent neighbors, and the community. Residential additions and new homes should be thoughtfully designed to respond appropriately to the land on which they sit, and to be good neighbors to those around them.
