It was a collaborative, smooth process that became a memorable, fascinating, and hugely rewarding journey… The end-result is a house of timeless beauty and elegance.

Matt and Stacey
New Hampshire Lake House
We are now the proud owners of a home that is magnificent architecturally, yet functionally perfect down to the smallest of details.
Michael and Kathy
Oceanfront Shingle Style
The unique designs and ideas they provided us for our project were beyond anything we could have imagined. They listened to what our ideas and expectations were for the project and brought them to life.
Nichole and Adam
North Shore Tranquility
Their design ideas, after listening to what we were looking for, were spot on and even better than we could have imagined. The creativity Matt and team brought to the project while maintaining the historical integrity of the home exceeded our expectations.
Steve and Kelly
The projects we have done together have transformed my antique home and barn from a mishmash of odd and unsound structures to a beautiful period home, both inside and out. It was wonderful to work with a group that fully understands my desire to preserve, protect and restore my house with historic accuracy but ensure modern comfort.
We had no idea where to begin. Mat listened carefully to everything we had to say, and did a beautiful job of combining our ideas with his.

Mathew was quick to understand our needs and wants and added a sense of style and elegance that we would never have expected or considered..
Nancy and Gordon
The folks at Cummings are likely some of the nicest people you will meet—gracious, talented and kind… Antique homes are a labor of love, and Cummings generously shares in that effort. All on the team are incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and really, really talented.

Mat is a collaborator who teaches and guides you to your happy place as your design evolves and becomes a reality.
Al and Kathy
Chloë, our interior designer from Cummings Architects, was an absolute necessity to our kitchen renovation. We would have been completely overwhelmed doing it on our own, and it would have been a hodgepodge of design components that we would eventually regret.
Peter and Cathy
The John Kimball Junior House
The friendly experts at Cummings worked through a myriad options, plans and details that included preserving our original farmhouse and barn, renovating the portion added in the 1880’s, and replacing the ell with a modern – and well integrated – garage and master bedroom suite.
Ellen and Sean
I like to come up with my own ideas, but I’m so glad I enlisted Chloe’s help. Things that I would have never thought of – different shades of white, the type of backsplash tile, black garage door, you name it. She always came prepared with samples, ideas and a professional attitude to get things done.
Hidden Farmhouse Wishing Well
Mat had an amazing vision for our 1895 Victorian that makes it modern while maintaining and enhancing the original character of the house. He and his team are always prepared, always available, and they’ve worked especially hard to meet our desired (short) timeline. Although it’s a busy firm, we always feel like a priority. Plus they’re really fun people.
Katherine and Murat
From the beginning the team listened and understood what we wanted. They worked with us every step of the way to give us a beautiful, comfortable home that is open, warm and inviting with amazing light and takes full advantage of the marsh views in our backyard.
Steve and Debbye
Mat Cummings was honest and upfront with us from the first meeting and he had a great way of aligning our goals with reality… Their professionalism, passion, and attention to detail are first class.
