"DeStefano Maugel Architects, with great pride and care, renovated our space to reinforce the culture and brand of our establishment. They paid particular attention to preserve the historic nature of the space while helping to bring our design vision and requirements to fruition. With the help of DMA, we were able to maintain the exterior charm of our historic building and incorporate it on the inside while creating a functional modern workspace for our employees."

New England Architects Historic Bank Renovation
"When our 140 year old organization was planning a total renovation, we engaged a number of local architects for proposals and concept drawings. In the end, DeStefano Maugel Architects provided us with concepts that reflected a true understanding of our history and corporate culture. They took the time to understand what’s important to us to produce the best possible product." Historic Bank Renovation Richard

"DeStefano Maugel Architects is hands down “the best." They’ve earned many accolades, but most importantly they've earned our trust. When my wife and I tried to pull off the impossible; converting a multi-family apartment into a dream home in the city's historic district, on federally-protected waterfront, with improper zoning and other major hurdles, we were told to go with DMA — they are “the best.” After a thorough evaluation process, we chose the DMA team. What we got was everything we wanted and more. They were resourceful and unrelenting in their pursuit of our dream. They made everything happen, and we are lucky enough to live in the work they did every day. From design, to permitting, to management, they are the most talented, process-oriented and professional architects out there." Historic Residential Renovation Zac

"As we have a substantial history of collaborating with DeStefano Maugel Architects on commercial projects, they were our natural go-to architect for our residential addition. The firm’s experience with historically-sensitive design fit our project perfectly. Our home’s enhancement was in the best hands while DMA navigated and served as our advocates during the city's Historic District Commission approvals process. We are as pleased with the results of our residential project as we always have been while working on commercial projects. I highly recommend their services." Historic Residential Renovation Alison
New England Architects Residential Client and Commercial Consultant
"DeStefano Maugel Architects has been a valued partner for over 20 years on dozens of very successful private and public projects. Before starting an assignment they take the proper time to understand the project goals , deliverable expectations, client budgets and assemble the proper team. It has been a pleasure to be part of the positive team environment they create on every project. I am so impressed with their communication skills, creativity, problem solving and overall project delivery that we have trusted them with working on renovations to our personal residence we recently purchased. DMA plans maintained the character of our 1920’s beach cottage, while bringing it up to today’s building and energy codes." Residential Client and Commercial Consultant Gregg

"DeStefano Maugel Architects was wonderful in helping us develop a design that met the needs for our property, specifically to accommodate our growing family. DMA professionally orchestrated a large team of consultants to seamlessly result in a residence that is "ours". The design team adhered to our specific wishes for the existing property and provided the much-needed detailing and open family spaces we desired. We look forward to calling on the DMA team in the future and recommending the firm to our friends." Residential Addition and Renovation Michael
New England Architects Historic Church Renovation and Preservation
"DeStefano Maugel Architects has been, and will remain, one of the most important and valued professional resources in the restoration and preservation efforts at the historic Middle Street Baptist Church and attached Peirce Mansion in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. For decades, DMA has provided seemingly limitless experience, skill, dedication and knowledge of all aspects of historic preservation design work. We have found their advocacy efforts on behalf of the church's Board of Trustees extremely valuable. The firm's personal commitment and involvement with our cause truly sets them apart. Specific restorations directly attributed to DMA have won recognition by the local Historical Society. We are blessed to have DeStefano Maugel Architects as part of the ongoing story of our historic property." Historic Church Renovation and Preservation Tom
New England Architects Commercial Development
"I have had the pleasure of working with DeStefano Maugel Architects on multiple high-profile commercial design projects. All projects have been complex and architecturally diverse in their own way. I have formed a very trusting and valuable working relationship with the DMA team and have come to rely on their integrity and professionalism while providing design services and construction oversight. As evident by decades in business, DeStefano Maugel pays special attention to the final product and the integrity of work done in their name. As a Capital Projects Director, I am very selective. I can, without reservation, recommend DMA for your design needs." Commercial Development Robert

"Why would one choose an architect not once, but twice? Because they are excellent listeners, very creative and superb collaborators. These attributes are the bedrock for a superior project outcome which occurred in both our projects. Our first project was to modernize our beach house. After many years of active use, we wanted to re-purpose some space and create new space, all while retaining the warmth of memories from a three-generation family. Our second project was a new townhouse construction--two completely different projects. What they had in common was our request to mesh creativity, functionality and "pretty" into wonderful living spaces. DMA guided us throughout the process. We thank the entire team for the beautiful work, a wonderful sense of our desires and needs, and a great team effort." Residential Remodel / New Reconstruction Joan & John
It started as a dream home filled with natural light, coastal, and modern. "Bring the outside in with a Cape Vernacular style. We would even love to view the moon from our loft," was what we requested. As I walk around the home, I find myself smiling. Thank you to all at DeStefano Maugel Architects.

“DeStefano Maugel Architects knew the way to navigate quickly through the complicated city permitting process, allowing us to open quickly so we could start serving customers and get our business back up and running.” Commercial Renovation/Client Advocation Eli
Following a disappointing experience with a local contractor, my sister and I met with DeStefano Maugel Architects to discuss the issues. We left the meeting feeling a huge weight had been lifted. They produced a schematic design in a weeks time. The team completed more in a month than the previous contractor had completed in five months. DMA is so talented. We were immediately impressed by the firm’s professional approach, ideas, and support for our project. We are also impressed with the overall service, transparency and accuracy of costs, and a willingness to work with us to achieve our goal of opening a family business. With their consistently high standards of service and quality, we would highly recommend Destefano Maugel Architects – you won’t be let down. Business Client Cindy & Sallyann
