Areas of Expertise

Commercial

There are so many different types of commercial projects that New Haven architecture firm Richard Turlington Architects has been a part of (Commercial office buildings, Libraries, Restaurants, Court Houses, Carr Dealerships, Banks…) our design process for each one remains unique and consistent. However, since architecture plays an important part in how everyone sees our world, especially in commercial settings, there are common themes among all buildings catering to one form of “trade” or another. The urban environment is, for the most part, comprised of buildings in which trade and commerce occur.

Whenever Richard Turlington Architects has the opportunity to provide architectural and design services for an educational setting we approach them with wellness and learning in mind. Wellness is a thread that weaves through all of our work and is especially important in educational settings. This is paramount because a learning environment needs to be conducive to just that. Library’s need to be easily navigated but also include enclaves for private study groups. Labs need to be functional and safe but feel invigorating to the students and to the teacher’s senses.

Residential

The New Haven based architecture firm, Richard Turlington Architects believes that of all the styles of architecture the most intimate relationship an architect and client can have is that of a residential client. A home is where one comes for peace, safety and sanctuary. When building from the ground up or refurbishing an entire home listening to our client’s words, body language and desires is of the utmost importance. Without understanding what our client is trying to achieve we can’t do our job because collaboration is key to a successful design. We bring ideas, storyboards and experience but each residential design project is always unique. Meeting a homeowner within their space is an honor and we treat each meeting respectfully and collaboratively.
