Samyn-D’Elia Architects, P.A.
Award-Winning, Sustainable Residential Design since 1980
Ward D’Elia’s first residential design commission, in 1980, was for a local family with strong conservation principles and deep historical ties to Squam Lake. The imprint of the lake’s history, the aesthetic of the local architecture, and the focus the client placed on preservation and respect for the natural setting have informed Samyn-D’Elia Architect’s (SDA) residential design work ever since.
Ward and Cris approach design as a collaborative process focused on their client’s values and goals. They create exceptional spaces by being insightful observers, effective listeners and efficient communicators. Their designs embody and reflect their clients’ vision and core values, accommodate current and future needs, and meet budgets.
SDA’s residential portfolio contains a rich assortment of projects including meticulous lakeside camp renovations, post-and-beam family homes tucked onto the landscape, and expansive, ski-out residences—each reflecting the unique and varied tastes, needs and dreams of our inspiring clients.
