firm profile

Derby Square Architects Inc. provides personalized design services for each project. With our design philosophy, we focus on the client and not ourselves. We take the time to learn about our clients and perform thorough research for each project to ensure we offer nothing but thoughtful and effective design proposals built on a foundation of the client’s expectations and the characteristics of the end user and project site.

 

As planners and architects, we offer consultation services for single and multi-family homes as well as commercial interiors for small businesses such as restaurants, retail, and professional services. We specialize in adaptive reuse and urban design, and we have deep experience in historic preservation, resilient design practices, and planning skills often integral for an adaptive reuse project
