About Nicholaeff Architecture & Design

Nicholaeff Architecture + Design, founded by Doreve Nicholaeff, takes a holistic approach to architecture and specializes in distinctive new homes, additions, and renovations in both modern and classical styles. "We have found that clients are putting considerable thought into creating homes that are both comfortable and familiar. Abstracting clients' memories and enthusiasms is our role as architects. We collaborate with the client to create their spoken and sometimes unspoken dreams by incorporating our knowledge of history, the local vernacular, and the latest technology into a warm and inviting sanctuary."

Ms. Nicholaeff is a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB), the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), and the Boston Society of Architects. Nicholaeff Architecture + Design is regularly featured in both regional and national home and design publications, including New England Home, Modern Luxury Interiors, Fine Homebuilding, Kitchen & Baths, Renovation Style, Florida Design, Boston Common, New England Home Cape & Islands, Better Homes & Gardens, Beautiful Baths and the Boston Globe Magazine, among others.
