80's Unwind

80's Unwind


Originally from the Midwest, McKinley received his degree in architecture from Rhode Island School of Design. He says he came here for school but fell in love with the coast and decided to stay.

McKinley sought employment, which he calls his apprenticeship period, with architectural firms in Boston, which offered a high level of exposure on national and international projects. One such project was the planning and designing of the Providence Convention Center and Hotel.

Drawn to Stonington through freelance work with an architect in the Borough, McKinley decided to build a life here.

Michael McKinley and Associates specializes in exceptional coastal homes in seaside communities such as Stonington, CT, Watch Hill, RI, Charlestown, RI, Shelter Harbor, RI, Jamestown, RI, Normandy Beach, NJ and Vero Beach, FL. Our architecture and interior design is sensitive to the coastline and responsive to our client's vision.

The award winning firm offers numerous architectural services: residential architecture, sustainable design, home renovations, coastal property analysis, permitting, and interior design including lighting, finish and furniture selection.

Principal Architect, Michael McKinley is a registered architect licensed in: Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Florida.

Our office, located in the seaside village of Stonington, CT, specializes in residential design that is sensitive to the coastline. The firm's residential architecture is responsive to its site and surroundings. A well sited residence, especially on the coast, maximizes views from all rooms and is shaped by sun and wind. It also gracefully transitions from indoor to outdoor spaces. We refer to this approach as "working from the outside in."

Increasingly, coastal homes are subject to a complexity of regulations. We specialize in architectural feasibility analysis for coastal properties. Our extensive experience in resolving zoning and flood hazard issues enables us to identify opportunities and minimize risks for both property buyers and homeowners. And, being on the coast ourselves, we design buildings and specify sustainable materials that withstand the elements.
