dEmios Architects specializes in transforming the older homes so prevalent in Massachusetts, bringing them to the next level without sacrificing their character- or completely changing their character, whichever is more appropriate.

We encourage people to incorporate environmentally friendly building practices, materials and design principles into their projects.  Our upcoming guide, Renovating in Climate Crisis, is going to be available for download in October.
