Design Associates has been providing comprehensive architectural services for new construction, renovation and restoration projects throughout New England since 1979. Long considered the preeminent architectural firm on Nantucket Island, in 1983 Design Associates established a second office in Cambridge, Massachusetts and began exporting its refined expertise beyond Nantucket.

Whether new construction, historic restoration, or renovation/adaptive reuse, Design Associates’ approach frees each client and project from dogmatic formulas. 

Design Associates’ portfolio includes hundreds of well-designed, custom single-family homes, as well as hospitality, commercial, and mixed-use projects; all with the firm’s distinctive, classic, New England style – a signature that deftly balances history, architecture, and modern living.
