Founded in 1988, Outerbridge Horsey Associates, PLLC, specializes in residential architecture. In addition to local projects, the firm has completed homes on the Eastern Shore and in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and as far afield as Newport, Nantucket, Antigua and Guatemala. A staff of five full-time architects designs new houses, additions and renovations, closely adhering to clients’ requirements while drawing on the inherent qualities of the site and honoring the style of any original structures. “We ensure the use of the highest-quality materials and detailing,” says principal Outerbridge Horsey. “This allows us to provide the finest finished product possible within the projected budget.”

Outerbridge’s early experience as a gardener and carpenter instilled in him a passion for integrating architecture and landscape, and an emphasis on details. “While I trained as a modernist, exposure to architectural history and theory provide a balanced frame of reference to explore new possibilities,” he reflects. “My appreciation of people, their ideas and dreams also informs my design process.”

New clients are asked to fill in a questionnaire about their functional needs, memories and aesthetic preferences. “A well-designed house should express the personality of the client in both overall concept and details,” Horsey notes. “We consider each project unique.”
