Firm Background

Our mission is to create true sustainability.

Environmental and social sustainability inspire us every day to create thoughtful designs that respond to people and place, and to work with design teams to shape buildings and systems that tread lightly and work smoothly.

Whether consulting on a project or leading the design, we push for ambitious possibilities while remaining rooted in the demands of construction.

15 years of approachable design.

James Carr architecture + design was founded in 2004 with a dedication to developing beautiful and effective design solutions. Our firm practices a wide range of work, including residential, municipal, commercial, historic, educational, renewable energy, and social service projects in Massachusetts, New York, and California.

Since 2010 we have provided sustainability consulting services for 20+ LEED and CHPS projects throughout Massachusetts, with a focus on public educational facilities.
