Philosophy

Patrick Ahearn, AIA, specializes in historically motivated architecture and interior design. Over the past 38 years, his volume of finely crafted and detailed residential work spans a multitude of classic styles of architecture from City Town Houses to Island Homes. With offices in both the Historic Back Bay neighborhood of Boston and on the island of Martha's Vineyard, these environments provide a rich and fertile background for the creation of classical timeless architecture, appropriate and in scale to each locale.

The firm's work covers a broad spectrum of projects in the United States including master planning, new construction, historic renovation and restoration. To each of his projects, Mr. Ahearn and his team of architects and designers bring a highly educated and schooled knowledge of classic architecture coupled with a keen sense of how people live today, which in turn produces homes that are timeless and responsive to the needs of today's lifestyles.
