Define Your Own Sense of Home

Custom Residential

Custom residential design is our passion. Regardless of a new home, addition or renovation, we will design in a variety of architectural styles to meet the desires of our homeowners. . “Design Your Own Sense of Home” is our philosophy in the design of a custom home, and our attention to detail is what sets us apart from the standard. Details are also what turn a house into the place that you will call home. A custom home should be a reflection of the people who will live there.

Design + Build

By utilizing a design+build process led by architects, we can help simplify the construction process for our clients. We understand the wishes and desires of our clients from the beginning of the design to the end of construction. “We have the design perspective of the architect and the attention to detail and the construction quality of a craftsman builder.” The construction budget is a priority from day one. Our firm will undertake construction projects within the firm’s geographic area for clients and will also collaborate with selected builders when your project is out of our construction area.


Studio21 Architects provides design services for a range of commercial projects, from relatively small projects such as tenant plans to more complex projects, such as restaurants, auto dealerships, ice arenas and multi-story office buildings. Our experienced staff allows us to provide the optimum solution for your commercial projects. We start with understanding your project requirements and then prepare design solutions. Since our commercial work is typically for small business owners, we have a sensitivity to providing cost effective solutions.

We had a fantastic experience working with the staff of Studio21 Architects. We had a bit of a more challenging job, because we were building a home out of state, but there was nothing difficult about working with this firm. We took our time and were never rushed in the extensive planning of our “dream home” and it showed with the completion of our home.

The entire process was very enjoyable and we would and have recommended Studio21 Architects.

We first met with Bill, Studio21 Architects, in January to discuss plans for putting an addition on our 1928 Cape Cod. We love our house, and have made many improvements in the 12 years we have lived in it. We love our neighborhood too. We were struggling with the limitations of the small rooms in our house. We reluctantly started our search for a new house. While looking at homes for sale in our neighborhood, we fell in love with an addition they did on one of the homes we viewed.

At our initial meeting with Bill we knew that he was someone we would enjoy working with on this project. Studio21 Architects did the plans for our addition. During the process we developed a great relationship with Bill and decided to have them do the build too. Bill was our GC (general contractor) and we could not have been happier with the process or the end result.

Bill is very knowledgeable, professional, personable, and fair. He respected our budget and worked hard to stay within it…The trades that Bill brought into our home were also professional, prompt, conscientious and skilled. There was an obvious mutual respect and friendship between Bill and the trades he hired. We lived in our house through the construction and when the project was complete it was hard to say goodbye to some of the people who had been with us for months – especially Bill!

Our project was a 1000 ft. addition. We added a master bedroom and bath, large family room with fireplace off of our kitchen, and basement with 9 ft. ceilings. The entire house was resided with (James) Hardie board. The addition is seamless and we still receive compliments two years later on how beautiful our addition looks. Our family enjoys being together in our new large rooms. Entertaining is functional and fun and possible!
I highly recommend Studio21 Architects for design and/or build services.

We had the pleasure of working with Bill when we built our first home. What we thought would be a stressful and daunting process was an absolutely pleasurable experience. They listened to us with great attention and did not miss any details that we wanted included. It was amazing to see how they pulled our idea of an ideal home from our minds and conceptually put them on drawings. We also outsourced the construction progress supervision to them, and they managed the process from start to finish for us.

Their ownership of the process was amazing; supervising the project as if it were their own home. They gave us input and suggestions as construction commenced, most of which we incorporated, and the end result was stunning. We have lived in this home for 5 years, and we are very pleased with the layout, openness, aesthetics and functionality. Studio21 keeps in touch with us, asking for feedback as we continue to dwell in the house. Studio21 Architects is not just an architectural firm, but a firm with vision, creativity and engineering elements all rolled into one. Above all else, the firm has a great team of individuals who aims to please their customers.
