With additional specialties in landscape design and interiors, the firm adeptly makes proper- ties feel expansive and modern without seeming foreign or out of place in their surround- ings. 126 Dodge St., Beverly, 978-927-3745, READERS' CHOICE Steven Baczek, 46 Gwenmere Cir., Reading, 781-354-5839, stevenbacze- ARCHITECT Renovation & Restoration CUMMINGS ARCHITECTS Lead architect Matthew Cummings specializes in restoring historic homes to contemporary grandeur. Where most people would sug- gest a teardown, Cummings sees potential in renovating antique beauties, forming expansive living spaces that are fresh for modern living. That could involve converting an attached barn into a living room, for instance, or subtly integrating solar panels on a roof. His meticulous ef- forts have won five national Chrysalis awards since 2014 for partial and whole home renovations, a credit to his blend of respect for the past and fulfilling clients' wishes. 87 Central St., Ipswich, 978-356- 5026, READERS' CHOICE Cummings Architects, Ipswich DESIGN/BUILD WINDOVER CONSTRUCTION Winners of numerous design awards, as well as a "Best Place to Work" nod, this company excels at taking any project, no matter how complex, from concept to execution. Using innovative ideas to bring a dream project to fruition, CEO Lee Dellicker and his team listen carefully to every client's vision, budget and timeline needs, then work collaboratively to bring beautiful spaces to life.

A mix of reclaimed prod- ucts, the latest in high-efficiency building products, and a knack for combining pleasing design with maximum utility make each Baczek house unique. 46 Gwenmere Cir., Reading, 781-354- 5839, READERS' CHOICE Steven Baczek Cummings Architects are masters of restoration.
