The Eyes Have It

Let’s go beyond the blog built upon an architecture of words, paragraph upon paragraph of text. Why say it with arial, tahoma, or helvetica, when you can say it with brick, columns, and marble? Here are just three recent projects that show what we at SOMMA have been up to.


Happy Spring!

While winter may seem to be hanging on a little longer than we’d like it to, at SOMMA we have just the idea to get you in a spring mindset. Below, is a rooftop deck and pergola design. Call it a private urban sanctuary, a garden escape, (or simply, how to make use of your neighbor’s brick wall) we think it’s something to behold.




Keene Student Housing

Just when the semester is starting to wind down, SOMMA is ramping up — designing a new student housing project for a NH liberal arts college. Known as The Mills at Keene State College, it will respect a distinct architectural heritage influenced by industrial, mill and railroading history, we are coming in with a modern, hip edge to the building and the site by adding modern rugs and high tech appliances.

Who’s ready to go back to school?



Before and after

Small or large, soup to nuts we love a design challenge!
This kitchen was given new life and the ‘sense’ of more space- all in the same square footage- with a cathedral ceiling, a new cabinetry configuration and lighter colors.’

So there you have it. Big or little. Bold or subtle, SOMMA is up to any challenge, and these are just some of the visuals that prove it.

More to come, and bring on the sun.
