Eric Chamberlin


Eric Chamberlin is an Associate and one of the owners at Davis Square Architects, and joined the firm in 2005. With nearly 20 years of architectural experience, Eric has worked on the design of complex renovations, new construction, adaptive reuse, public safety buildings, churches, office spaces, childcare, and both market-rate and affordable housing. He is a registered architect in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

Among Eric’s projects are Ellis Memorial & Eldredge House, the renovation of two historic buildings in Boston’s South End neighborhood. Ellis Memorial is a not-for profit social service agency, and the buildings were renovated to house their daycare and after-school programs as well as administrative offices. The two projects presented a variety of design challenges; including childcare guidelines, historic restrictions, new additions, LEED requirements, and groundwater recharge regulations. He is currently working on the YWCA Southeastern MA, a major addition to an historic structure that will house an after-school program plus 8 units of housing for women. Other projects Eric has worked on include:

  • The CHOICE Center at North Village, a new construction, 37-unit rental development for seniors.
  • Gorham Street Apartments, a new construction, 24-unit rental development for families.
  • YWCA Cambridge, the renovation of two historic buildings that included assembly spaces, offices, retail uses, and 103 SROs.
  • Lake Williams, the reconstruction of a condominium building that had been destroyed by fire.
  • Auburn Court, an occupied rehab of 78 apartments in 9 buildings, plus a new LEED Gold building which adds 8 more units to the development.
