About My Firm

Patrick Rettig Architect LLC is a practice focused exclusively on residential architecture and project management - helping homeowners, contractors and architects create functional, livable, and beautiful renovations, additions and new homes. I have extensive experience with both the design and construction challenges associated with working on and among New England homes of all ages and styles - and I bring that experience, along with a dedication to high quality design and open communication, to each and every project.


About Me

My career began at an early age in my father's basement workshop, where my brother and I were free to use hand tools and scraps of material to make and fix things. After completing my undergraduate degree in philosophy, I moved to San Diego and found a job working as a laborer for a foundation repair contractor, digging trenches, jackhammering slabs, setting rebar, pouring concrete, and somehow realizing that what I wanted to do with the rest of my life was build things.

Since that time, I've worked for both a large construction company and a large architecture firm (Suffolk Construction Company and DiMella Shaffer, respectively) - and then later, as the co-owner of a smaller scale residential design-build firm, I worked as a designer, project manager, site supervisor and carpenter on residential projects of all shapes and sizes. 

I've found that my passion is residential design and construction. I love working with clients to define a vision, and I love spending time on the building site with contractors and subcontractors figuring out how to make that vision happen. 

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree, cum laude, in philosophy from Harvard University and a Master of Architecture from Boston Architectural College. I am a Massachusetts licensed Architect, a Massachusetts licensed Construction Supervisor, and a LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Accredited Professional.
