Leaf Design Associates
About Us
Leaf Design Associates specializes in residential architecture, with an emphasis on additions and renovations to older New England houses, mostly in and around the Boston metro area, and also in South County Rhode Island. As a husband and wife team, we combine creative solutions and practical ideas, with an emphasis on understanding how families really use their homes. We design every project uniquely to complement the style of the existing house, and balance the needs of our clients; their wishes, tastes, and budgets.

Since the mid-1990’s, we have designed hundreds of attractive additions and new homes. Our work is spread throughout the Boston metro area suburbs and South Country, Rhode Island.
