“Burr and McCallum fitted the house to the land like moss to a stone” wrote architecture critic Robert Campbell.


“Frank Gehry meets the Shakers” is how former Dean of the Yale Architecture School, Thomas Beebe, once described our work.


These two quotes describe what we strive for in our architecture. It must start with a strong connection with the site: physically, historically and emotionally. And from that beginning emerges invention. We love to use old materials in innovative ways. We update traditional construction methods that have proven their worth over centuries with new materials and current energy conservation techniques. History is our friend and our inspiration.


We have been in business since 1982, always from our home base in the Berkshire hills of Massachusetts. Ours is a country practice, leading happily to a wide variety of project types, including schools, museums, shops, and the mainstay of our practice: houses. Our work has been recognized internationally through publications, exhibitions, and awards.
