What are SKA's most noteworthy services?
SKA is an award-winning residential architecture firm with offices in Cambridge, MA, and Sandwich, NH. Our wide-ranging portfolio includes new builds, renovations, and additions, with a focus on bridging the design gap between historic homes and modern-day living.
What makes SKA stand out?
SKA has been recognized by New England Home, the Boston Globe, Boston Globe Magazine, Houzz, and Boston Home as one of the leading residential architects in the Greater Boston area. We combine our passion for design with a background in construction management, a rare combination that leads to a distinctive design process and end product that are aesthetically and intellectually rigorous, as well as financially informed. Our values are rooted in New England pragmatism: efficiency, logic, beauty, honest expression of materials, and clean lines and forms that allow the architecture itself—the space, light, materials, spatial relationships—and inhabitants to thrive. The result is an architecture that is current but timeless, functional yet warm, and universally rational while also being uniquely reflective of the values and characters of our clients.
What regions do you serve?
Primarily Massachusetts and New Hampshire; we have a second office in the
Squam Lake region of Sandwich, NH.
What's a unique fact about SKA?
We use virtual reality with all our clients, employing the latest technology to offer our clients a virtual walk through their spaces before committing to a design.
