CEM Design has built a reputation for excellence in providing award winning design and management solutions for hundreds of
commercial and residential clients. Our primary areas of focus are historic restoration and renovation, and environmentally
sustainable “green” design. While these may seem to be very different areas of expertise, we believe they are essentially
complementary. The most sustainable building conserves and reuses the embodied energy of an existing building.
CEM Design is committed to the principles of providing comprehensive, personalized service; designing aesthetically appropriate,
innovative projects that utilize state-of-the-art materials and methods; and insuring that projects are completed on time and within
budget. We have received several awards for our thoughtful, innovative designs, and numerous accolades for the thoroughness
and accuracy of the documents we produce.
We are licensed architects in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, Colorado, and Massachusetts, and we hold national
certification (NCARB). We are LEED Certified by the US Green Buildings Council, Energy Star Partners, members of Green America
and the Maryland Green Registry.
