At Brewster Thornton Group Architects, LLP (BTGA), design is a process where current conditions and existing constraints become opportunities. Design should create architecture that improves the quality of life and creates a sense of place. Each solution should be rooted in context, responsive to needs, functional, beautiful, and considerate of its place in the community.
Residential, Historic, Educational, Community, Planning, and Multi-Family practice groups form the basis of our firm. Throughout our practice, we create buildings that provide solutions while responding to program and place. We understand the inherent value of existing structures and recognize that sustainability must be integral to our design process and underlie our firm philosophy.
Centrally located in Rhode Island, we serve to clients throughout New England. Our work is supported by a committed and thoughtful team that works to craft buildings that are sustainable, memorable, meaningful, and beautiful.
