Stephen L. Reilly, AIA – Principal

Before stepping out on his own, Stephen spent time at several of Boston’s top architectural firms, including prestigious  Massachusetts firm Elkus/Manfredi Architects, Ltd for nearly 10 years. He received both his undergraduate degree and Master of Architecture degree from Northeastern University.

Stephen has completed a wide variety of high end residential projects in and around Boston and the immediate suburbs. His commercial experience is also extensive and includes a multi-family residential building for Avalon Bay Communities in Newton, a large office building for Harvard Pilgrim Health Care in Quincy, a bio-tech building for Millennium Pharmaceuticals in Cambridge, and a mixed use New Urbanism project in Colorado.

Stephen lives with his wife and three children in Newton, Massachusetts.



I am delighted to recommend Stephen as an architect. We have used him for renovations to our home and we have been very pleased. He listened carefully to our needs and worked collaboratively in developing the plans for our projects. His conceptual and analytic skills are outstanding and he is very creative in addressing challenging design issues. He is prompt, reliable, and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him and would definitely use his services again in the future.

Stephen consulted with us on an addition to our home. For the home owner, Stephen is the only architect with whom you should speak. He is a listener by personality type - I felt that he had complete comprehension of what I wanted to do. He is an expert by trade - he was thorough in his recommendations while educating me as to the code requirements I had to meet.
He is naturally creative - his concepts solved my challenge while staying within the constraints of the project. He offered several suggestions as to how I could maximize the opportunity both from a cost perspective and how I could enjoy the improvement in future years.
If you are considering an architect, put Steve on your short list. I’ve spoken with plenty of his competitors and he’s the real deal; grounded, understanding, and results oriented.
