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).

Knickerbocker Group offers comprehensive architecture, interior design, woodworking, and construction management services for residential buildings and commercial spaces. We approach each project individually, customizing our services to best fit our client’s needs. You can engage us for any one, or all, of our offered services and benefit from our understanding of the entire process from inception to occupancy. Together, we are a group of inspired collaborators who contribute their diverse talents to the design-build process. Good design starts with caring, thoughtfulness, and attentive listening. We create client-driven designs that reflect our practice at listening. Our work is custom, because our clients are as diverse as the houses we build for them. Our houses are deeply personal to our clients and as such, our relationships with our clients are close and personal as well. Equally as important is the energy and excitement for the vision we create together, and being able to articulate that vision from the first program meeting to the last day on the construction site The natural outcome of attracting a great group of Maine talent has been the growth and evolution of our original business, Boothbay Home Builders, founded by Steve Malcom in 1978. With the addition of woodworking services in 1985, architecture and design expertise in 1990 and more recently the incorporation of care taking services and offices in Portland, Knickerbocker Group was formed. Over the past three decades, we have built relationships with a diverse network of artisans and craftspeople throughout the state, both in-house and freelance professionals. Our work is underscored by process-driven delivery—40 years and each time we strive to do it better. We guide our clients from start to finish, and find the best way to succeed is with frequent and effective communication. We like to tell our clients what we are going to do before we do it, so they are aware and as involved as they would like to be. While we value process, we will never compromise quality.

Carol began Residential Design Studio as a sole proprietor in 2010. It quickly became evident that RDS was going to be larger than one person! Given the economic climate of 2010, many of her wonderfully talented colleagues were also “on their own” and of a similar mindset that working together was the key to both financial and personal success. RDS quickly gained a reputation for pulling teams of highly qualified professionals together for a wide variety of commercial and residential projects. By 2011, it was clear that this model of working together was going to be successful and RDS needed to grow to support it—and her first employee was hired. . .then the second. . . then the third. . . Today, Carol remains sole owner of the Studio and is supported by a wonderfully talented staff. RDS still partners with their colleagues who are “on their own” and with large firms, so that we can meet any challenge set forth, with the best possible professional fit for our clients. Carol is the lead designer of the Studio and remains involved with her clients throughout the entire design and construction process—even when another member of RDS manages the project, Carol’s is the face you will see at every design meeting.

At LBD I strive to create beautiful, contextual buildings in a clean and modern way. This is done by paying close attention to the building’s surroundings and by working very closely with my clients to listen to, and understand, their needs. At the end of the day, a beautiful building must be more than simply aesthetically pleasing. A beautiful building must also speak to the people who live, work and spend their time there. Such a building supports and adds to ones life in a joyful way. A beautiful building is a backdrop to your life that takes little and gives much in return. About Leslie: After growing up in the Midwest and spending my architecture school years on the West Coast, I made the shift to the Northeast to explore another region of the country and get some much desired hands on experience building a small, naturally built, timber frame house. Portland and Maine were totally unknown to me then, and I couldn’t have been happier when I realized that there was a vibrant architectural community at my doorstep. I immersed myself in it, spending five years working at Scott Simons Architects before branching out on my own. In my own practice, I really love being involved in every stage of the design process. This allows me to get to know my clients very well and to feel a strong connection to both the process and the outcome. Seeing a project through from conception to construction is a very gratifying and exciting experience. DREAM - DESIGN - BUILD - LIVE - LOVE
