About David Sharff Architect, PC

My philosophy is that building or transforming your home should be a collaborative process and deliver a personal design solution tailored to your unique needs.

Since 1995, David Sharff Architect has been implementing this approach in partnership with our clients to deliver timeless, award-winning designs for new homes, whole house renovations, additions, and interiors.

Through the thoughtful integration of beauty and function, form, space and material, we instill the feeling that, while fresh, beautiful and new, antique or modern, "this feels like it has been here forever."

An early interest in art, history and construction led me into the field of architecture. I launched my practice in 1995 with a focus on detail-oriented residential design and home renovation. Today my award-winning firm's designs can be seen enhancing neighborhoods throughout Greater Boston, Cape Cod and New England.

I have both a BA and a MA of Architecture (1988) from Tulane University, and have instructed design classes at the Boston Architectural Center. David is a registered architect in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).

"I am so grateful to have had David working on my house renovation and can’t recommend them enough. David was patient with us as listened to what we wanted and designed several (all creative!) well-thought-out plans for our entire first floor and basement/Office renovation. He has a great working relationship with the talented GCs he recommends and will oversee the project from start to finish. He designs beautiful spaces and homes."

"We absolutely recommend working with David Sharff Architect, PC. They are professional, talented, smart, nice and above all else...patient. This project was our first addition/renovation so we were nervous and needed a lot of hand holding throughout the process. Right from the beginning, David listened and gave us incredible plans that fit our needs and wants. David's plans made the most of the space and budget we had to work with. The revision process was easy and we had plans ready to go in a timely manner. He was always available by phone, email and accommodating to meet around our schedules. He worked closely with our contractor which made the process run smoothly."

"David Sharff designs homes that reflect the owner’s dreams, and then exceeds their expectations with his creativity and comfortable work style. As designers ourselves, we respect and value David’s attention not only to design excellence but details, large and small. We love his work and his work style, and provides service and advice with a high degree of professionalism, taking into account the clients’ goals and budget. Working with them is a true pleasure and we recommend them without hesitation - they brought our dreams to life!"
