Firm Profile

Suellen DeFrancis, Principal

At SDDA we are dedicated to providing the full range of design services to our clients. We are a small architectural firm devoted to bringing the best quality of design talent to our clients.

Unlike larger firms, SDDA is a boutique firm that offers the direct involvement of our professionals in all phases of the project process, which provides continuity to each phase of our assignments. Our goal is to create an open relationship with the client and provide expert guidance throughout the complex process of bringing each design to completion. This is a collaborative effort. Our client’s needs and ideas are of primary concern to us. We will work with you as a partner and also work closely with the required consultants – all keys for a successful project.

We offer our clients a seamless turn-key service in all phases of the project, from design concept through the entire construction experience, whether you are creating a new building or renovating an existing one. We advise on budgeting and contractor selection, manage the bidding phase and assist in contract negotiations. Our strong relationships with professionals, from landscape architects to lighting designers and engineers to audio-visual consultants, allows us always to get the right team in place for our clients. That team will be managed by us in direct collaboration with you, our client.

Our expertise includes hands-on construction and interior design services. We will assist you with selection, purchase, delivery and installation of furniture, fabrics and finishes. Every detail can be left to us.

Additionally, a separate department within our office provides advice and research regarding the acquisition of available properties, as well as development and investment. This focused group also offers real estate property management services. We now manage several properties ranging from single units to multi-family buildings.

We look forward to hearing about your needs. Please contact us so we can present you with more specifics on how we can realize your project.
