Our Story

Who We Are

Capital Studio Architects is a full service architectural firm creating thoughtful, creative and contextual architecture in our local communities. The two principals of the firm David Holmes and Patrick Mancuso have combined over 80 years practicing architecture.

Founded in 1988 Capital Studio offers our clients a service oriented approach to meet their needs. Projects begin in the programming phase, and in case of existing buildings, analysis of existing conditions, exterior envelope, code and structural analysis. This is followed by the design phases which typically include the necessary local approvals; planning and zoning, inland wetlands, zoning board of appeals and/or historic district  commissions, as applicable to that particular project. Cost estimating, an important element of the services that we provide, is generally completed during the design phase.

Upon completion of the design, construction documents (drawings and specifications) are assembled for the purpose of bidding, building permitting and use during the construction phase.

We regularly assist our clients in taking bids, reviewing bids and make a final recommendation on the selection of a contractor.

Our History

We believe that an important part of our longevity and success that we have achieved is in large part due to the hands on approach of the firm’s principals. Both Pat and David are intimately involved in all projects and day to day operations at Capital Studio.

Perhaps the ultimate testament to our method of practice is our returning customers. Our client base is built on a base of repeat clients.

Our mix of returning clients with new clients we hope will insure that Capital Studio Architects continues on to the next generation of architects.
