Great architecture is not about the architect. It is about, and in honor of, the patron.
Commissions exist throughout New England to the Bahamian Islands. The firm’s unique team of design-oriented architects is driven by a passion to create elegant architectural solutions in ways that are innovative, respectful of tradition and craft, yet also respect budgets. The size of a project or cost per square foot is irrelevant to our quest to produce successful projects and happy clients.
Everyone at Andreozzi Architects works in small groups partnering directly with David throughout all phases of the architectural process. David’s hand is in every aspect of every project, from the overall proportions of the facades to the details of the moldings on the mantles. As a team, our goal is to organize and simplify the various aspects of design and construction administration, coordinate various consultants and ensure that the final project exceeds all of our client’s desires. Our homes are all individual objects set upon their own unique landscapes, but reflect the architecture and decoration of their patrons. The success of our approach can be seen in the history of repeat clients, awards of recognition, magazines publications, books, and television programs featuring our work.
David Andreozzi founded Andreozzi Architects in 1988 specializing in historic based archetypes with a concentration in the Neo-England vernacular. A typology that is truly idiosyncratic to its sense of place by using time tested building materials and construction methodologies. While his projects are mostly located throughout New England, he has drawn upon the lessons of New England vernacular to complete projects as far south as the Bahamian Islands by taking the principles we use to create regional architecture here, but then applying the rule set of a different vernacular. In addition to his professional work David has dedicated his career improving the design profession. As recent National Chair of CRAN, the AIA’s Custom Residential Architects Network David is personally spearheading CRANtv, an internet based series of viral videos that educate the public on the importance of good design and the role of the Architect, which is receiving national accolades.
David is current President of the New England Institute of Classical Architecture and Art.
- What’s your go-to classic color choice?
- Dark green on my shingle style house's trim, white on my bucks and wood rocker, robin's egg blue on the bead-board ceiling above, purple on my bow tie, deep red in my wine glass, and a gold band on my Cuban Romeo Y Juleita Churchill. All classic!
- Is there a hotel that’s most inspired your work while traveling?
- The Rome Cavalieri. The inspiration is not in the hotel itself, which is very nice, but the setting... high on a hill looking down on Rome. The beauty looking down upon the glowing architecture at night is simply breathtaking, to the core of one's soul.
- Which pieces of technology do you use to document design inspiration?
- Pencil and paper with a true understanding of the history that you are about to reproduce or reinterpret.
- Where do you go to spot new style?
- In a history book. This may sound anachronistic, but lead, don't follow.
- Do you have a favorite restaurant (for the design and the food, of course)?
- Del Posto, New York City
- What’s your favorite small museum in the world?
- RISD Museum, Providence, Rhode Island
- How do you usually start your weekend?
- A very dirty martini and oysters.
- Who or what is your biggest design influence?
- History. It's like a free drug. The more you absorb, the smarter you become, the better you feel... and you can't overdose. Just don't read and drive!
- How do you keep it all together?
- Family is that glue for me!
- Design a garden: groomed or freestyle?
- I love a garden by her roses, the rest is superficial.
