A Conversation with Patrick Ahearn

If you ever have the chance to speak with renowned and local architect Patrick Ahearn FAIA about design, you may hear him say, “If I’ve done my job well, I’m like a ghost in the night. No one will know I was there.” Patrick practices what he calls narrative-driven architecture, meaning he creates a storyline for every project he designs or renovates. This process of scripting ensures that each of his buildings–whether it’s a carefully restored historic home or a house designed from the ground up–has a sense of implied history.
