Erik Tolley and his colleagues have a keen understanding and great appreciation for the vernacular of historic homes in the setting of the small coastal Cape Cod community where we spend our summers.

Aware of this, my husband and I approached Erik to talk about our home which was in need of some TLC and updating for our expanding family. Erik was enthusiastic, listened attentively to our needs and style preferences, and during our meeting came up with a plan that we had never considered but which was genius, marrying old with new.

Without altering our 1890 house, he designed a beautiful new addition that sits on the same footprint of an old dysfunctional addition. This new space includes a new kitchen and family room with a master bedroom and bath on the second floor, connecting to an office space over the garage via a glass bridge.

Erik and his team were easy to work with, met deadines, and we really appreciated the open lines of communication with them. The team works to understand your style and design priorities and then works with you to find pieces that you love and which work in your space.

I would recommend them to anyone for an architectural or design project, whether small or large.
