Design-Build Philosophy

Polhemus Savery DaSilva

At Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects Builders, we recognize that many styles of architecture exist on Cape Cod and throughout New England. Independent from styles, some buildings make a positive contribution to our built environment, while others detract from it. We believe the inherent qualities of good architectural design have much more effect on architectural success than do characteristics of different styles. There is one constant, however, quality.

There are certain design principles we follow that we believe lead to thoughtful, high quality architecture. Inspiration plays a part, but mostly it takes hard work. Our goal is to create buildings that will serve their users and the public well; buildings that will be treasured. Through our highly collaborative client relationships, this leads to personal expression that is connected with the past, appropriate for the present, and forward looking to the future.
