We believe good design is a collaborative process. Wonderful buildings spring from the hopes, dreams and aspirations of the people who use them, and architects help translate those visions into reality. Good buildings reflect the character of the people who use them and at the same time, are in balance with their surroundings, the environment, and the realities of budget. As your architect, we are your ally and your advocate. We listen carefully to what you want and need and help you build it. We strive to make the process rich, rewarding and fun!

Wyeth Architects LLC is a Connecticut-based architectural firm. We design for residential, institutional, and commercial clients. Our work has received numerous awards for design excellence. With decades of experience in new construction, renovation, and restoration, we know how to work within your budget to create designs that look good and feel right.

We offer complete architectural services, from design consultation to construction documents and construction administration, as well as specialty services: energy conservation, historic preservation, and help with municipal approval processes.

Our deep interest in sustainable design practices gives us experience with photovoltaics, low-head hydro, wind, passive solar, super insulation, ground source heat pumps, water sourced heat pumps, and alternative energy sources. To make buildings more efficient, we utilize all appropriate techniques and approaches including recycled materials, cradle-to-cradle strategies and strategic energy conservation and usage. LEED accredited and Passive House Certified professionals are on staff.

As a CT-based architecture firm (close to NY, MA, RI, VT and NH), we are centrally located to perform work throughout New England. We are licensed in Connecticut, New York and Massachusetts.
