Our Philosophy

BellSoave Architects designs are focused on crafted architectural details, warm and engaging interiors and spaces grounded in the owners’ personal lifestyle. Not bound to trends, our designs, traditional, modern or contempary, are expressed in the specific tastes of the client. We work with clients to understand their unique needs and dreams to provide elegant homes, always with an environmentally and cost conscience approach. Projects are selected based on shared visions and good chemistry with the owners. Our experience in adaptive reuse and historic renovations brings insight to unlock an existing building’s unique potential for it's next use. Our goal is to develop a plan and vision that coincides with the owner's with guidance through the process of budgets, schedules and completion of the project.  


Our Services

BellSoave Architects is pleased to provide design services that can range from conceptual design ideas to full scope permit and construction documents. Our designs include new construction, additions and major renovations. We provide existing conditions documentation for renovations, early design ideas, finishes and lighting selection, and detailed construction documents. We advocate in the owner’s best interest to meet with pre-selected contractors who also have a mutual vision and clear understanding of the project or provide bid drawings depending on client requests. We process ideas through hand sketches or a variety of 3D software programs to bring clear visuals to the client in order to understand how the spaces will look and feel. Visioning services to help you plan a renovation or new home can be provided and credited toward final contract.

Sustainable design


"BellSoave Architects helped us create the house we truly desired.  The design responded to all of our specific needs with plenty of environmental amenities we never dreamed possible.  Eco-living was never more exciting or comfortable.  We would encourage anyone thinking about a custom home to consider working with you!
Please forward our name to any potential customer as a reference.
Kind regards,

We used the services of Laurie Soave, of Bell-Soave Architects, for extensive renovations to our Southern Maine oceanfront property.  Laurie took our little, non-descript ranch and transformed it into a beautiful, custom one-story living Craftsman style home. She was very attentive to our vision for the property and worked very closely with us to bring it to a reality.  Laurie was meticulous in every phase of the project, from initial design, to getting our plans approved to overseeing the project once it got underway.  We enthusiastically recommend Bell-Soave Architects!

"I am very pleased with how well you translated our conversations into these drawings."

J.Suh, Dedham MA

"......Her technical knowledge, ability to gain and retain the confidence of complicated client groups, skill at guiding projects through approval processes, and project management success through production and construction set Laurie apart from many of her colleagues during the years she spent with us. Her architectural successes include pioneering projects in terms of sustainability combined with historic preservation. She has a strong design sense and combines tact and assertiveness in ways that provide real leadership when working with multiple clients and other architects. Please contact me if you require any further information."
