For over fifteen years, we have provided exceptional design and personalized service for custom residential projects large and small throughout the Lower Connecticut River Valley.
Chris Arelt, Nautilus Architects, views the practice of architecture as a service and an art and architecture itself as that which both accommodates and inspires. The design process involves collaboration and interpretation, and each design evolves in its own way in response to site, context, program and client. With the important recognition that environment has a profound effect on life, projects are tailored through landscape, building, and interior to fully realize the potential of each situation.
Chris’s work is characterized not only by appearance but consistent quality across a range of conditions. Chris and his team listen carefully to their clients and work with passion to meet and exceed goals. Their approach to sustainable design is rooted in the essential nature of the site itself, the orientation of buildings to topography/sun, minimizing construction waste, and making appropriate choices for building systems and the material palette. We integrate innovative methods of dealing with passive cooling, natural ventilation, managing daylight, energy use, recycled and repurposed materials, life cycle cost analyses and green roof technology.
