new residences​​

Domain Design Architects offers full-service architectural design, from feasibility studies  through construction.  We listen carefully to your ideas and generate multiple design solutions from which the best can be selected. 

Working with your builder, we can help with preliminary cost estimates to keep  you on track with your budget.

We provide construction documents and can help you secure a building permit.

With capabilities for materials and finish selections, as well as interior, millwork and furniture design, Domain Design can ensure the full integration of all elements in the  design of your new home.

accessory structures

From home offices, to mother-in-law apartments,  to boathouses, we can help you to improve your home environment  through the addition of accessory structures which are both space- and energy-efficient.  At Domain Design Architects we believe that small is beautiful and are committed to creating accessory structures that are thoughtfully designed and that maximize the potential of each square foot.  Services include zoning feasibility, design, permitting and construction management.

& additions

Remodels are a large and satisfying part of our work.  Improving an existing home is one of the most environmentally responsible decisions one can make.  From modest improvements to complete  gut rehabilitation, we can help you realize the inherent potential in your existing home. 

Working with energy auditors and mechanical engineers we can analyze your home's energy performance and make recommendations for cost-effective improvements that will save you money in the long run.

​Let us show you how your home can be a source of joy and "work" better for your present and future needs.


Denise Garcia has extensive experience in the design of multi-family housing, including townhomes, condominiums and apartments.  Before starting Domain Design Architects, she spent 10 years in Massachusetts designing and managing a number of multi-family residential projects throughout the United States.  In 1984, Ms. Garcia received an award of distinction  by EDRA (Environmental Design Research Association) for her publication, "Houses Behind Houses"​, which created design guidelines for increasing suburban residential densities through a method of infilling.


Interiors are features that  make a house a home.  At Domain Design Architects we pay close attention to  these smaller-scale elements.


From kitchen and bath cabinets, to breakfast nooks, fireplace mantels, Murphy  beds and even lap pools, we can give your  home the details that will make it a pleasure in which to live.

In addition, Domain Design Architects can provide help with the selection of:

- interior and exterior paint colors 

- interior and exterior lighting 

- materials (flooring, counters, etc.)

- appliance and plumbing fixtures

- hardware, knobs and pulls​​



Domain Design can provide design services for non-residential projects, including light commercial, light retail and institutional buildings and interiors.  In addition to her residential design experience, Ms. Garcia has served as Project Designer/Project Manager on  a number of retail projects  for clients such as Sony, The Limited and Bertucci's Restaurants.
