Since the establishment of Bucchieri Architects in 1967, Stephen Bucchieri has produced subtle and sophisticated modern work through a design process that draws inspiration from minimalist principles, materials that reflect inherent qualities of the site, and ways in which space responds to daylight. His enthusiasm is fed by the satisfaction of making places that can have a positive and lasting impact. He is the third generation of his family involved in the building process. Out of that tradition grew his fascination with the art and craft of architecture, with the modernist structures made possible as construction technology advanced, and with the entire design process from concept through construction, furnishing and lighting. Stephen's firm is a studio in the purest sense of the word, allowing him to maintain a personal, hands-on involvement in all phases of the work. The studio focuses on exploring local materials for construction and landscape, modeling the impact of natural light on the space, and often designing custom windows, lighting, furniture, hardware, and landscape elements specific to the project. The result is a body of work that includes highly individualized buildings all faithful to Stephen's belief in simplicity, meticulous attention to detail, highly refined craftsmanship, and a balanced approach to design.
