dEmios Architects

At dEmios Architects, our mission is to help people with their home renovations and additions.  We do this through traditional architectural services, design consultation, home renovation coaching packages, our podcast Talking Home Renovations with the House Maven, and through Home Renovation zoom classes.  At the moment we are offering all of our services online, mostly via zoom.

Let's talk about how we can help with your upcoming project.



Are you putting of starting your home renovation because you’re feeling overwhelmed, not sure how to start, how to find a contractor, if you need a design professional, whether you can even afford to renovate right now?  In this pay-what-you-like seminar, the home renovation process will be laid out from start to finish by an architect who has been working on home renovations in Massachusetts for 20+ years.  

Are you planning a renovation and interested in keeping the environment in mind?


Sorting through all the information out there about environmentally friendly practices can be overwhelming. In this guide your options are laid out for you along with links to relevant articles.

I hope this helps get the conversation started. This is intended to be an ever-evolving document, please send me feedback, questions and suggestions.

Submit your email to be part of our mailing list which will include updates to the guide as well as virtual events we are planning throughout 2020.  Keep an eye on your inbox for the guide.  Thanks!

Art and Community

Return of dEmios as a community space- reimagined

Back in the early 2000s, we had a storefront in Cushing Square, Belmont MA.  We hosted art shows, readings, installations, a bus stop design competition.  We loved being part of the community and exploring ideas publicly.  When we left that space, we lost that connection. The silver lining in this present crisis is that we are all far more open to the possibilities of virtual connection than we were even one month ago.  For now, we will need to meet online, in the future we could continue with in-person events in local venues.  The possibilities are endless,  but we are beginning with the following:
