About William Lee Architect & Associates

At William Lee Architect & Associates, we believe thoughtful analysis and creative talent are essential elements for great design. We believe that complex program challenges are solved by the collaborative process which results in elegant and inspired design. And we believe that the successful building form has the ability to delight the senses and resonate with the human spirit.

We bring extensive design experience to each project while acknowledging the architectural heritage of each building's context. We work to create spaces that are dramatic and those that are intimate. We investigate spatial adjacencies and hierarchies as they relate to form, function and beauty. Our goal is to create thoughtful and inspired design through the built form.

William Lee Architect and Associates was established in 1990. Bill Lee is a registered architect, a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the Boston Society of Architects (BSA) and is a certificate holder of the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB).

William Lee Architect & Associates has extensive experience with custom residential architecture in the Boston Metropolitan Area, South Shore, Cape and the Islands. Our firm offers a comprehensive source of design and technical service and will guide the client through the design and construction process. Services include new construction, additions to existing buildings, renovations and restorations. We work with professional engineers to bring a full spectrum of professional talent to each project.

"Bill and his team designed a lake house for us in 2019. They listened closely to what was important to us and provided multiple design options. Once we landed on a base design they kept working with to refine and and improve the plan based on our input. Throughout construction Bill was always available for consultations and direct communication with our builder. Their work is exceptional. The results stunning. The carpenters working on our project have independently told me how much they like Bill's design. We could not be happier. It's worth noting that Bill is a very nice person, and it has been a pleasure to work with him and his team on this project."
—Client testimonial on Houzz

"Architect Bill Lee provided me with an inspired design for my new home that was unique, functional and beautiful to look at. The challenges involved were many. It had to be built upon an existing underground home's complicated foundation footprint, as it existed, due to strict coastal bank restrictions. I wanted a building that was different than anything else yet one that did not look out of place. Bill and his great staff of architects were as enthusiastic as I was throughout the entire process and I couldn't be happier with the result."
—Client testimonial on Houzz

"Bill Lee and his team totally transformed and expanded an existing shingle style house we purchased into a more classic coastal home well suited for our lifestyle. Upon visiting the site, Bill understood the opportunity to take advantage of the amazing location by adding outdoor living spaces and bringing the extraordinary ocean views indoors with innovative floor plans and by incorporating transom windows throughout the house. Bill and his team identified and leveraged some of the finer details of the original structure but with their inspirational designs, use of clean lines, thoughtful planning and collaborative approach they significantly enhanced the look and usefulness of the entire property. They shaped the design to capture the character of the area and created a house that looks like it could have existed in an earlier time, while giving us a comfortable, warm and welcoming home that we love. Bill and his team are professional, attentive, creative, diligent, imaginative, responsive, collaborative, enthusiastic, fair, trustworthy, and delightful to work with. We highly recommend Bill and his team."
