About Us

Christopher Arelt's practice involves collaboration and interpretation, with each design evolving in its own way in response to the site, context and client. Arelt's work is seen as a continuation of, but also a response to Modernism; or, more specifically, a return to regionalism and artistry, where clients' projects are developed with the "heads, hearts and hands" of all those involved. All of our buildings explore the use of natural light, reveal the inherent beauty of the materials being used, and bring the outdoors in. Two Office locations: Southport and Old Lyme serving Darien, Fairfield, Greenwich, New Canaan, Norwalk, Rowayton, Southport, Stamford, Westport, Lyme, Old Lyme, Essex, Mystic and all of New England, Connecticut, Hamptons Long Island, Rhode Island, New York and the Tri State area. Specializing in Contemporary, Modern and Coastal Residential Designs for all of New England. "Chris was terrific! I needed help in creating a fresh identity for our 1986 contemporary home. This was an extremely small project which Chris treated with the same respect, attention to detail, and design excellence as he would a much larger project." - A satisfied client
