O'Brien Architecture is a residential firm based in Westchester for over 20 years. With a local viewpoint and an international scope, this custom design firm has developed a broad word of mouth reputation for homes built with clarity, partnership and a calm elegance.
When you build a renovation, addition or a new home you stand at a crossroads. You are faced with countless choices; you are consulting with an array of "experts" and you are weighing solutions based on aesthetics, budget, codes and technologies.
It's easy to get lost. Building is a personal journey filled with decisions and challenges and that initial leap to actually build will be challenged and tested. It is our job to keep you on track.
My associates and I translate the language of designers, technical consultants, contractors, and municipal officials. We are the bridge from concept through drawings, construction through completion.
With clear communications, we support you to build with understanding, confidence and excitement.
Successful design solutions are shaped by the input of three "players"; you the client and your wishes, the architect's vision and then what is "right" in response to the existing building or site.
You bring a lifetime of special memories drawn from homes you've known, novels, movies...
The architect's job is to listen carefully, present interesting options, and guide you to an inspiring and buildable solution.
We are your partner through each step of the design building process through completion.
The homes we build are to inspire while they have a calm elegance. They are custom made, designed from your needs and dreams.
The home is a stage for us to live out the scenes of our lives. These are the deeply important places where many of our most memorable moments will be experienced.
Beyond comfort and shelter, a home provides a sense of romance and meaning and they should have a timeless quality and a seamless balance in their surroundings.
Our intent is to have our projects feel as if they have always been there and could be nowhere else so comfortably.
The home we create with you will forever celebrate our collaboration and will be a gift to future generations.
