At BLOOM Architecture, we are passionate about design. We pursue this passion with curiosity and experimentation, backed with technical expertise and a dedication to collaboration. We explore the details of architecture: space, light, materiality, form, and context. In all projects, we encourage a consciousness of the impact of design, construction, and future use on the environment. We are inspired by challenges, and we seek to design buildings, furniture, and objects that accommodate the human need for inspiration, comfort, beauty and health. Looking beyond convention and style, we believe in the power of design to inspire, and to create environments that give us space to enjoy the moment.

My husband and I had a fantastic experience working with Derek this year and would highly recommend Derek Bloom Architects for your next project! We purchased an outdated/1990s house on the Northshore that needed to be updated and reconfigured to more optimally utilize its 4000sqft. The extent of the project included a brand new kitchen, new master bathroom, relocation of the laundry area upstairs, new master closet and reconfigured master bedroom, remodel of the guest bathroom. We interviewed several architects and were more than impressed by Derek, his detail oriented approach, his ability to see the big picture (everything from the future potential of our yard, to the third floor staircase, to a more effective reconfiguration of the kitchen). We really liked Derek’s practical yet very creative/unique vision, his well balanced aesthetic and flexibility when it came to incorporating our ideas and needs for the space. He thought about everything - from what we and our child like to do today to what we might want from our house several years into the future. His design was an original, out of the box, very elegant solution for how to optimize our space while really showcasing the house in all of its beauty. He is also very cost conscientious and helped us visualize various options and their impact on our budget early on in the process (really helped us not to get ahead of ourselves with costs!). He is also very connected and introduced us to an excellent contractor. They worked seamlessly together and executed incredibly well on some of the more challenging parts of the projects. We both work in very time consuming jobs and relied on Derek to help us make small and big decisions (from the type of tile to the configuration of our master bathroom and completely reworked kitchen). We were blown away with the results. We keep saying that we feel like we built our own home because it looks so fresh, modern and yet it is so us. We definitely believe that Derek's design and our contractor’s flawless execution has helped enhance the value of our home. It goes without saying that Derek has an excelling work ethic and will move mountains to help you create your dream home. We would absolutely work with Derek again in the future.

Derek Bloom Architects provided full service design for our new home. It was a 100% custom design. Derek Bloom Architects also provided construction oversight throughout the entire build process to ensure that the design on paper became a reality. Bloom has an amazing attention for detail and creativity. He is a true student of all categories of architecture and attacked our project for a Georgian Colonial residence with a commitment to be true to the period, while juggling our desires for a modern family home. He did an incredible job with a focus on symmetry, proportion, function and style. Bloom also designed the perfect floor plan, with spacious room, yet not too big; perfect for entertaining small or large groups and for daily family life. The finished details make this home a true piece of architectural art. The custom designed moldings, fireplaces, coffered ceilings, exposed beams, curved walls, plaster moldings, unique hardware, etc...left no room untouched with special details. You should not miss the hidden bar in the family room - tucked under the main stairs. The bar hides behind panels that open for entertaining, but close when not in use, disguising the opening as a wall of panels. In summary, Bloom designed a dream home that incorporates everything we wanted in our home. We asked him to design a new home that looked like it was 200 years old, yet functioned for our busy modern family. He hit a home run. You just must see this house. It is perfect in every way.
