A. Tesa Architecture
Since its founding in 2011, A. Tesa Architecture has garnered a reputation for designing homes that offer a respectful interpretation of classic New England character coupled with modern flair and functionality. For Alec R. Tesa, a 2014 winner of New England Home’s “5 Under 40” award and the firm’s principal, the process begins by taking the time to thoroughly understand their client’s vision and how they live. This thoughtful process, from concept to completion, is a partnership with each exclusive design unfolding over time ensuring that every detail is carefully considered.
Based in historic Newport, the firm specializes in designing waterfront Shingle-style homes throughout coastal Rhode Island. By drawing inspiration from this stunning region and combining it with an updated aesthetic, A. Tesa Architecture creates homes which complement their surrounding neighborhoods yet are undeniably original. This approach to design has allowed the firm to design many Newport homes that have been met with appreciative approval from the Newport Historic District Commission.
From elegant staircases with hand-turned balusters to sprawling front porches and thoughtful window selection, exceptional architectural details are the hallmark of each A. Tesa Architecture design. Alec, a previous recipient of the Henry Adams AIA Medal from the American Institute of Architecture, and his team work carefully to incorporate such details into each of their designs.
