The company:

Centerbrook is a nationally recognized architecture firm and recipient of the prestigious AIA Firm Award.  We work from our place in Centerbrook, Connecticut but our clients and projects are located across the country.  Our community-oriented office strives to advance American place making and the craft of building. From the beginning, our work has spanned from urban design to small architectural details that make buildings memorable.

The firm’s nineteenth-century compound of mill buildings, a former wood boring bit factory, is both the firm’s home and its vital center of experimentation where many streams of influence enrich the design. An in-house theater hosts lectures and symposia on many topics, including how to make places distinct and how to perfect the craft of building.

A collaborative firm with an exceptional history of building, Centerbrook performs many other services such as project management, planning, interior design, sculpture, landscape and site design, industrial design, furniture and lighting design, fund raising, and graphic design.

Our staff participates in the full duration of projects, from concept design to completion. We have a full wood shop and maker lab to encourage digital and hands-on fabrication. Our campus of mill buildings is powered using hydro and solar energy, read more about us here:
