About

Roost Architecture, Inc. is a full-service, professional architectural firm with an emphasis on residential design. We believe that good design is making spaces that make you want to come home to roost. Good design begins with understanding; understanding how we build, how we live, and how we affect the environment around us.

As our modern culture has developed, we have become increasingly specialized. Our work and interests focus us in ever-shrinking areas. Since many of us no longer build with our own hands or gather our own food or fuel, we’ve lost an appreciation for these things and an understanding of the principles which underlie responsible designs. This means protecting land, using responsible materials, and designing carefully so we can inhabit more efficient and inspiring spaces.

Roost Architecture, Inc. was founded by owner Joshua Dourte. Joshua Dourte received his Bachelor of Architecture from Drexel University in Philadelphia. Since 1999, he has worked on a variety of different projects ranging from pool houses to million square foot office developments. He felt drawn to start his own practice focused on sustainable residential design in 2007 which grew into Roost Architecture Inc.
