Beinfield Architecture has built an idea-driven architectural practice whose work is inspired by place, culture, and history. We are dedicated to solving architectural problems innovatively with environmentally sustainable solutions that are expressive of structure, and program. Our work is responsive and imaginative, modern, yet respectful of tradition and context.
As architects practicing in New England, our design is informed by vernacular traditions, and the timeless and essential meanings found in the stark, simple, patterned forms of early New England architecture. It is an architecture of distilled images, which bridges between the distant past and the present, exploring varying degrees of abstraction along the way. Our design process embraces our client’s dreams, enabling them to be realized in built form.
We take an alchemical approach to architecture, striving to transform the ordinary into the exceptional, and employing common materials towards uncommon ends. We use historical vernacular forms in search of meaningful symbols, imagery and experience, and ultimately judge our work based on the feelings it evokes, and its ability to resonate.
