We are award winning architects specializing in exceptional coastal homes throughout the East Coast. For more than 25 years, our small design studio has been dedicated to providing highly individualized design services to individuals and families who want to create an enduring and memorable gathering place for their family and extended family.

Our architecture and interiors are responsive to our client’s expectations and no two clients are alike. We approach each project without preconceptions. A key design philosophy of ours is to “work from the inside out and work from the outside in.” Thus indoor rooms become outdoor rooms that merge with the landscape and seascape.

Michael McKinley and Associates, LLC has designed homes, renovations and family compounds in well-known coastal communities such as Watch Hill, Weekapaug, and Shelter Harbor, Rhode Island, Greenwich, Stonington and Guilford, CT and Vero Beach, FL.

Our office is distinguished by our ability to provide clients the very individualized attention of a small office and the technical expertise and high-level design found in a large metropolitan firm.

We offer full project management and serve as a single point of contact for permitting, engineering, landscape, bidding and construction management. We also take pride in introducing our clients to the highest quality builders, craftsmen and artisans.

Principal Architect, Michael McKinley, AIA a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, established the firm in 1989 after working as lead designer at several internationally known firms in Boston and New York. He is the lead designer on every project and meets with clients throughout the entire design and construction phase.

Michael McKinley is licensed in Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, Massachusetts, Florida and New Jersey.

Commented: Which direction is the best way to lay wooden flooring? There are many factors that determine which way you should run a wood floor. In our coastal homes we often run the floor in the direction we want the eye to travel...usually toward the water.
