EPSTEIN JOSLIN Architects, Inc. offers a responsiveness to our clients that only a modest sized firm can achieve, and a depth of experience produced by over 25 years of creating “public spaces and private places” for prominent private and institutional clients. We seek to create "places of distinction with people at the core- one project at a time."

Established in 2002, the firm’s architecture and planning practice focuses on cultural, religious, educational, commercial and custom residential work. Recent projects include:

Shalin Liu Performance Center for Rockport Music

C. Walsh Theatre for Suffolk University

The Floating Peak House (private residence)

Sophia Gordon Creative and Performing Arts Center for Salem State University

The Stoneleigh-Burnham School Masterplan

With our team and in our former practices our design work has been published extensively and has received more than 70 local, regional and national design awards, including five National AIA Honor Awards.

ALAN’S experience designing community, educational and gathering places for such distinguished organizations as The Boston Symphony Orchestra, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, DreamWorks SKG, The Walt Disney Company, Phillips Exeter Academy, The Lawrenceville School, Babson College, Bowdoin College, Trinity College, and Williams College brings a creative and interactive approach that shapes environments to reflect the unique character of their cultural and academic institutions and those who live and work within them.

DEBORAH’S passion for materials, color, and composition produces finely crafted, specialty design work. To support this she has developed extensive collaborative relationships with craftspeople and artists.

RAY’S commitment to the integration of sustainable solutions into projects at all scales extends from planning through construction. A LEED-Accredited Professional, he enjoys facilitating the process, and is informed by professional experience with clients such as University of British Columbia, M.I.T., Middlebury College and the National Park Service; and community involvement with organizations such as West Roxbury Saves Energy.

TOGETHER our work is informed by a deep conviction that the social and personal needs of man/woman should be at the center of the act of building, and that architecture should seek a gracious neighborliness with its natural and human surroundings.
