The Arnold Design Group
The Arnold Design Group has been practicing residential design for over 40 years. The firm began as a part-time business in 1963 and due to its success the firm became a full-time operation in 1984. To the present the business has grown in volume and in reputation among southern New England’s coastal communities.
Our expertise is in Shingle Style design. In addition, we have incorporated Craftsman style details into many of our projects. We also have extensive experience in many traditional American styles including, Classic Revival, Colonial, Federal, and Victorian to name a few. In all cases we believe that a structure’s general style of the design should be appropriate and relate to its neighborhood and location.
With over 65 years in combined professional experience the Arnold Design Group has developed a reputation in the area as being the pinnacle of traditional residential design. Our clientele is generated almost entirely by referrals and is a testament to our standing among the community. Having practiced for many years, in this area, we have an acute understanding of the architectural vernacular of southern New England’s coastal communities.
