About Tektoniks Architects

hired 1 time on Thumbtack

There is no task more personal and more important than designing your own home or workplace.

Engaging with an architect who listens is critical for a successful project.

We collaborate with our clients to create successful projects tailored to their specific needs and desires.

We offer the full range of architectural and interior design services for projects large and small. We specialize in custom residential design (new homes, additions, renovations, "makeovers," and interior design), custom commercial and mixed-use buildings, institutional + civic buildings, and master planning/urban design.

We are also professionally licensed, NCARB certified, and LEED accredited for "green" building design.

Most importantly, we specialize in understanding you, our clients, and we utilize our experience and expertise to make your dreams a reality.

We were recently named "Best of Houzz 2015 - Design."

    Ernie offered invaluable assistance with our project. He was very patient and thorough in going over schematics and making sure all aspects of the project were considered. He was particularly helpful in considering traffic flow and handicap accessibility issues which were a top priority. A few years later when we wanted to do an expansion he was there offering great suggestions and smart designs.

    Ernie's professionalism and creativity on my municipal construction project was matched by his willingness to work with the ideas and expertise that we brought to the enterprise. Tektonics involvement , I felt, enhanced the dynamic synergy that was so prevalent on this project.

Question and answer

Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

A. Continuing education is required by the State of Massachusetts in order to maintain Professional Licensure. Continuing Ed is also required by the US Green Building Council to maintain our LEED green design status. As a firm whose Principal is a professionally-licensed Architect, continuing education is not only a requirement but an essential ingredient to ensure quality designs and performance.

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. We're very fortunate to have worked on a variety of project types. Our most common types of jobs, however, are custom residential projects. These consist of new custom homes on the one hand, and home additions/renovations/restorations on the other.

New home projects are wonderful because we have the opportunity to give our clients exactly what they are seeking, and build their dreams from the ground-up. But additions/renovations/restorations are also rewarding because we have the chance to take our client's beloved homes and breathe new life and energy into them. Oftentimes more difficult to design than a completely new home, renovation projects are challenging and highly rewarding - especially when we see the look in our client's eyes when they see something great happening to their house.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. Your home or business is your most valuable and treasured asset - make sure that you entrust your most valuable asset to professionals who will protect your interests and provide you with exceptional service. There is a vast difference between a non-professional who draws measured drawings for your project vs. the design services offered by an experienced, qualified, licensed professional. Once the damage is done, there is no way to justify the savings that can be done to your home or business by an under-qualified individual who claims to provide the same service as a qualified, professional design firm - its just not worth the risk.

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. The quality of our work directly impacts the user's quality of life and well-being. Architectural designs by quality-minded professionals enhance the everyday experiences of those who use these spaces and buildings.
