ABOUT OUR FIRM
Demetriades + Walker

Demetriades + Walker is located in the Northwest hills of Connecticut. The work is primarily residential, spirited by an innovative approach to modernism and site integration. A site and client responsive methodology is fundamental to all projects. Stylistically, our work embraces modernism, as well as the vernacular tradition; we believe the choreography of light, volume and spatial progression transgresses stylistic labels. We research and select materials for sustainability and to harmonize with our architectural objectives, balancing dynamic and contemplative aspects.
