Highlights from our Residential Portfolio

The following are a few of the recent projects successfully designed and completed by Rocco Architects, from 500 square foot additions to 11,000 square feet of new construction

Residential: Private Residences


 New Construction, Haddam CT

Design/Build project, 3,500 square feet 


We assisted the client in site selection, we altered the original site plan to maximize views of the Connecticut River, we designed the residence and a number of custom built-in features, and we managed the construction for the client.

New Construction, Haddam, CT

Design/Build project; 2,750 sf


Built in 2011, this residence provides single-floor living for the "empty-nester" clients, with two bedrooms and two baths on the Main Level, and the ability to finish two additional bedrooms and a bath on the Second Floor, should the need arise.

Radical Renovation- an Extreme Make-over

  • Transformation of a modest 1965 Cape into a 5,000 sf Shingle Style home for a growing family. The home was occupied throughout the project.
  • Much of the original structure was retained, but new mechanical systems were installed throughout, as well as a complete new building envelope.


Custom designs are client-inspired

a zero-energy house nestled

in a Connecticut valley


Designed for a site in Higganum CT,  this green-to-the-extreme house utilizes active and passive energy saving and producing techniques. Conceived as a a cast-in-place concrete bridge across a wodded vale, the thermal mass of the concrete modulates temperature in all seasons. The "Summer House" conservatory on top is a three-season solar collector and heat chimney. Photo-voltaic and solar hot water panels form the south-facing parapet,  HVAC is geothermal-based, and a custom double window-wall system on the southern exposure trap heat in the winter and exhaust it in the summer.
