Dean Brenneman Architect

Dean Brenneman, AIA

Dean Brenneman believes in focusing on one thing and doing it well. His practice is devoted exclusively to what he terms “transformative residential additions and renovations.” His work has been featured in local and national publications and garnered many awards over the past 30 years. “My mission is to create a unique and personalized solution that transforms how each client experiences their home,” Brenneman states.

While fascinated with all styles and periods of architecture, Brenneman is equally comfortable designing in classical and contemporary idioms. He is also noted for his expertise in preservation and adaptive reuse of historic structures and has served and advised local historic preservation boards.

Brenneman believes that architectural design is a collaborative process. He listens carefully, questions deeply and aims to solve challenges with elegance and simplicity. “I love finding creative solutions that allow my clients to not only improve their house, but also improve their lives,” he says. The architect works closely with builders to ensure the complete realization of the shared architectural vision.

A native Washingtonian, Brenneman now practices over a wide-ranging geographic area. His designs can be found throughout the Atlantic seaboard and the Caribbean.
