Brooks A. Mostue

AIA, LEED AP BD+C
Principal

Brooks Mostue is a co-founder of Davis Square Architects and founding principal of its predecessor Mostue & Associates Architects since its incorporation in 1984. His work includes a broad range of academic, corporate, and residential projects, many of which involved historic and architecturally significant buildings. Brooks’ strengths lie in client and community representation, sustainable architecture, construction management, real estate acquisition analysis, and modular housing.

Brooks worked on the renovation of Georgetowne Homes, a 967-unit residential development in Hyde Park, Massachusetts. The project started as a routine siding replacement project and has evolved into a master plan for providing significant energy and maintenance savings for the owner, and far more healthy and comfortable housing for the tenants. Recently, Brooks completed the preservation and renovation of a LEED-H certified modernist private residence in Lincoln, Massachusetts.

Prior to Mostue & Associates, Brooks assisted Harvard Real Estate, Inc., in establishing an in-house construction contracts division and a five-year capital improvement plan, and represented Japanese interests in U.S. real estate investment. His experience administering self-help urban homesteading programs underpins his continued commitment to affordable housing and active social involvement.

Brooks has taught and participated in design studios at Harvard University, Tufts University, Rhode Island School of Design, Suffolk University’s New England School of Art and Design, and the Boston Architectural College. He also sits on several boards and committees. Additionally, Brooks has restored four of his own homes of historic significance.

"A place such as [this] is never done. That is what makes this a living place. What we are today is the product of many hands, who have built upon the foundation of others, and whose work will be built on in turn. As a community, we not only take stock of ourselves against a consistent set of values but also with a critical passion that has led us to much for which we can take pride."
