Richard Swann Architect



Richard SwannRichard Swann, AIA, is a registered architect in Connecticut and New York. He received a Master of Architecture degree from the University of California at Berkeley, a certificate from the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) and is a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).

Rick’s firm is an independent practice devoted almost exclusively to private residences. Reflecting an appreciation for eclectic design, many of his projects have been shingle-style homes and beach cottages. Swann is also well versed with the New England vernacular, and the classical Georgian or Greek-revival model. He strives to fit solutions to problems, listening to clients' needs and wishes—not working in a single signature style.

Most of Rick’s projects incorporate open, airy, sunlit and comfortable – almost contemporary interiors for informal living. He tries to bring as much empathy and insight to "interior architecture"—kitchens, baths, interior finishes and specifications—as to the structural architecture itself.

Rick has designed homes most recently in Greenwich, Westport, Southport, Fairfield, Darien, New Canaan, Rowayton, Stamford and Scarsdale.
