dEmios Architects

At dEmios Architects, our mission is to help people learn about, plan and complete their home renovations and additions.  We do this through traditional architectural services, Ask an Architect design help line, 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.

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:

Talking Art with Patricia Crotty

Wednesday,September 9, 7:30 to 8:30 PM Eastern

Reading with Architects

First meeting: Tuesday, April 28, 7:30 PM ET

First book- the Not So Big House by Sarah Susanka.

I've had this book for over 20 years and still haven't read it cover to cover.  I'd love to discuss it with others as I do so.  We will be reading the book in sections, meeting every other Tuesday evening starting on April 28. To join us, sign up here.

We are starting a second book in September- do you have a recommendation?
