Sam Kachmar Architects is a locally owned design-oriented architecture firm that is committed to excellence in custom architecture and design for residential buildings. We combine rigorous design with construction management experience - a rare combination that leads to a distinctive design process and end product that are aesthetically and intellectually rigorous as well as financially informed. Our design values are rooted in new England pragmaticism: efficiency, logic, beauty, honest expression of materials, and clean lines and forms that allow the architecture itself - the space, light, materials, spatial relationships - and inhabitants to thrive. The result is an architecture that is current but timeless, serene yet warm, and universally rational while also being uniquely reflective of the values and characters of our clients.
In addition to ground-up new construction homes, our firm has expertise in major modern renovations to important works of architecture by notable architects including Paul Rudolph. The firm's work has been published in Boston Magazine, Boston Voyager, Design New England, South Shore Living, and House Beautiful.
With our office in Cambridge MA, we are a locally rooted firm that focuses on projects in Huron Village, Avon Hill, Harvard Square, the Crown Marsh District, and Coolidge Hill, Belmont Hill, and Strawberry Hill. SKA has also done projects in Squam Lake NH, Duxbury, MA, Weston, MA, Dover MA, and in Aspen CO.
