MGA | MARCUS GLEYSTEEN ARCHITECTS

Led by architect Marcus Gleysteen, the residential architectural firm Marcus Gleysteen Architects combines artistic vision with the highest professional skill and discipline. The firm operates out of a loft at the tip of the Greenway in downtown Boston. 

Marcus Gleysteen Architects currently has houses under construction in Brookline, Newton, Weston, Wellesley and Hyannis. The firm works throughout New England and has recently completed projects in Newport, RI and as far afield as Carmel, CA. Their work reflects a symmetry of New England‘s cultural heritage while integrating current stylistic, functional and pragmatic needs.

The vast majority of their houses in the Boston area, either new construction or renovation, are designed for everyday family use. Each design is honed to become as highly efficient, cost effective, practical and sustainable as possible. Beauty and delight are not compromised for the sake of function and vice versa.

The portfolio of the firm showcases a stylistic range that underscores their deep understanding of the principles of home design: performance, livability and comfort. Project types range from small renovations and additions to new houses of all sizes.
