Stephen L. Kelleher, A.I.A

Stephen Kelleher has over 35 years of experience in the field of architecture. His experience with public projects dates back to the mid 1970’s when he was employed as Building Inspector and Architectural Engineer for the City of New Bedford. In that capacity he was responsible for acquiring a $1.5 million grant for the restoration of the city’s main library and city hall, both built in the 1880’s. In private practice, Stephen has provided repeat services for the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), formerly the Department of Environmental Management (DEM), and many other clients. Many of these projects have been in rural settings.

Projects for DCR have consisted of visitor and interpretive centers for various state parks. The firm has recently completed design and construction administration of the new facilities for Horseneck Beach State Reservation. Stephen has a true fondness for the varied landscapes of Massachusetts and strives to design buildings that draw on the character of the region.
