Our Firm

Founded in 1992, LDa has provided award-winning design solutions for a wide range of clients throughout New England, practicing in the residential, interior design, commercial, cultural and academic sectors.

Whether guiding a homeowner through the complex design and construction process, or managing a large-scale commercial project, our work does not represent a definable style; rather it represents a consistent and definable approach that embraces user needs, context and technology. We follow a philosophy of finding balance between the often conflicting goals that shape the architectural design and construction process. We believe that by working to understand both the opportunities and risks embodied in each project, we discover the best solutions for our clients and capture that critical balance between design, craft and cost.

LDa offers sustainable architecture and interior design services for new builds and renovations of all sizes. As our clients increasingly desire more energy and resource efficient design, we have successfully demonstrated that we can create cost effective and elegant solutions that balance your design goals with the larger environment. We are committed to sustainable design and have completed over a dozen projects to LEED standards, with many of our employees being LEED Accredited Professionals.

Our residential work encompasses all types of projects, from conceptual design exercises, single room renovations, to gut-rehabs, new construction, estate-style residences and developer properties. We work throughout New England and the Cape, and have extended our reach to select projects across the country.

Similarly, our non-residential work spans a multitude of client types and project scopes, including schools, ecclesiastical facilities, multi-family and affordable housing, recreational facilities, office environments, restaurant/hospitality, commercial enterprises, historic preservation, and planning studies.

Our private sector work includes projects for the Appalachian Mountain Club, Museum of Science Boston, The Trustees of Reservations, Boston College, Harvard University, MIT, Foley & Lardner, LLP, Barkan Property Management and Jounce Therapeutics. Public Sector clients include Bridgewater State University, Springfield Technical Community College, the Cities of Cambridge, Boston and Salem, and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.
