Welcome To DeMotte Architects

DeMotte Architects is an architectural firm established in 1990 based in Ridgefield, CT. While the majority of our projects are located throughout Fairfield County, CT. and Westchester County, NY., we welcome projects beyond the immediate area.

We specialize in residential design & our projects range from small additions to custom homes, all done in a wide range of styles. No one style defines our work, as each design is a unique reflection of our clients personal taste, their wants & needs, the site & the context of the neighborhood. Regardless of style, each design is based on good design…..being timeless & classic while incorporating modern technology & “best-practice” construction techniques.

Brad DeMotte has been practicing for 30+ years & has earned an exceptional reputation among his clients & builders based on trust, knowledge & their confidence in his ability to execute. He takes a creative, professional approach to problem solving that often exceeds his clients expectations.

Why hire us? What makes us different? We’re passionate & enthusiastic about what we do which is reflected in every project. We’re meticulous & detail oriented; we like to sweat the details, whether it be design related or construction related. We like challenges & strive for creative solutions to difficult problems, which is the essence of good architecture. Our goal is to meet or exceed our client’s expectations, & we’d welcome the opportunity to work with you on your project…. Contact us for a free consultation.

What We Do

residential architectural design


Simply put, we design houses. We have exceptional experience in the technical areas of space planning, construction, engineering & drafting, along with being experts in materials, finishes & energy efficiency. Architecture is both an art & a science which also requires problem solving skills….all of which we excel at.

Architecture also requires listening skills….we take the time to find out how you live, what your needs are and how you’d like to see your dreams become reality. We take what may seem to be many different & conflicting elements & assemble them into a design that incorporates your wants & needs with grace, beauty & efficiency. We take your ideas & bring them to life in a custom design that’s done solely for you.

Construction Drawings

 There is a very technical side of architecture, which is the production of construction drawings & the engineering behind them. Our construction drawings are exceptional, which we are known for. Read what builders have to say about our work in the testimonials section.

Here are what our past clients have to say:

Working with Brad DeMotte was the most pleasant part of building a custom home.  He came up with a design which best utilizes the space and reflects how we live. He is very knowledgeable, responsive, and professional, and kept on top of a rigorous approval process.  Brad is a good listener and provides honest, valuable feedback.


Our builder said that his plans were meticulous and complete and was so impressed with Brad’s work that they have collaborated on other projects.   We are most pleased with how everything turned out and have not hesitated in recommending Brad.

Jerry Huo & May Lee

Brad DeMotte helped us make the right decision when we were planning an addition to our house. We almost listened to a contractor who suggested we not bear the expense of an architect when they’ve done many additions without one (which is only possible in Ct. due to a loophole). This didn’t make sense to us as we felt we may be jeopardizing the money being spent on construction without having the involvement of an architect.


Fortunately, we called Brad who reviewed our situation and quickly made very sensible recommendations. We now have an incredible addition that blends so well with the design of our house that no one knows an addition was built. Brad made the best use of the interior spaces while maintaining the openness we desired. His plans were easily accepted by the Town planning and building departments meeting all local requirements. The construction drawings were an important and necessary guide for our excellent contractor to follow, as they were very detailed & thorough.


We definitely believe that involving Brad in this project was money well spent & greatly enhanced the value of our house, & we would highly recommend him!

Lewis & Valerie Morrison

We hired Brad for an extensive interior and exterior renovation of our home.  For the exterior renovation, we had assembled several photos from magazines and the internet of what we liked.  Listening to our needs and wants coupled with questions about the photos, Brad designed a beautiful outdoor space that was unique to us but still timeless in its design.  This design was translated into impressive detailed construction drawings that our builder commented was the best he has seen.  As a result, the final constructed project was exactly as we had envisioned.  Brad is a great listener offering solid ideas and solutions to design issues and always met or exceeded deadlines.  It was a pleasure working with Brad and we would definitely work with him again on any future projects.
