FALL 2017 57 Architecture Firm/Traditional EDITORS' CHOICE CARPENTER & MacNEILLE On the North Shore, the name Carpenter & MacNeille is synonymous with exquisite architecture and precise building. For more than 20 years, this perennial "best of" winner has brought its superb craftsmanship to projects ranging from historical restorations to new constructions, and every detail is lovingly rendered. Carpenter & MacNeille is also a true full- service firm, offering not only architectural design services but also interior design, custom woodworking, construction with LEED-certified management, and even property services such as home maintenance, small installation projects, emergency maintenance, and a "white glove" concierge service. For a daily dose of inspiration, follow their brand- new Instagram account! 106 Western Ave., Essex, 978-768-7900, READERS' CHOICE CUMMINGS ARCHITECTS 57 South Main St., Ipswich, 978-356- 5026, Architect/Contemporary EDITORS' CHOICE SIEMASKO + VERBRIDGE Collaboration is key at Siemasko + Verbridge, and that spirit is evident whether it's between the firm and its clients or among the design team members themselves, who all work closely together to bring a client's vision to life. One need only look at Siemasko + Verbridge's stunning projects for evidence of this: soar- ing window-filled rooms with sweeping ocean or mountain views, sleek and chic spaces that blur the line between indoors and outdoors, and designs that seam- lessly combine the traditional with the modern. 126 Dodge St., Beverly, 978-927-3745, READERS' CHOICE STEVEN BACZEK ARCHITECT 46 Glenmere Circle, Reading, 781-354- 5839, Architect/Renovation & Restoration EDITORS' CHOICE BENJAMIN NUTTER ARCHITECTS, LLC When it comes to crafting a loving and thoughtful restoration or renovation, no detail is too small. The team at Benjamin Nutter Architects knows this, and has a long history of delivering clients' visions. They do this by combining a vast and deep knowledge of architectural styles, well-honed skills, and experience with the hopes, needs, and ideas of the client. For instance, one 19th-century farmhouse renovation provided the open space and comfort needed for contemporary living, but also incorporated repurposed barn artifacts that show an appreciation and respect for the home's history. 43 Canterbury Hill Rd., Topsfield, 978-887-9836, READERS' CHOICE CUMMINGS ARCHITECTS 57 South Main St., Ipswich, 978-356- 5026, Design/Build EDITORS' CHOICE WINDOVER CONSTRUCTION You can find Windover Con- struction's work all over the North Shore, from palatial homes overlooking the ocean to nonprofit and commercial spac- es like the luxurious Beauport Hotel in Gloucester and the new- ly renovated Cape Ann Museum to academic institutions like the new wellness and athletic center at St. John's Prep in Danvers. But as diverse as these projects are, they all have something in common: what the firm calls the "Windover difference," which means listening to clients' wants and needs, forming just the right team, creating a strong plan, and executing that plan, with the help of a 24/7 customer service group. 66 Cherry Hill Dr., Beverly, 978-526-9410, READERS' CHOICE JOPPA DESIGN INC. 35 High St., Newburyport, 978-462-1797, Green Architect EDITORS' CHOICE STEVEN BACZEK ARCHITECT For a home that's as beautiful, functional, and timeless as it is environmentally responsible, look no further than Steven Baczek Architect, who's been in the industry for decades.
