Founder & Owner
With 30+ years of design and architectural experience, Kent Duckham is the visionary of Duckham Architecture. Inspired by his father, who is also an architect, Kent knew early on what his career path would be. After earning a Bachelor's Degree in Design and Architecture from the University of Florida, Kent went on to earn his Master's Degree in Architecture from MIT. He subsequently became a Licensed Architect in the state of Massachusetts.
After graduation, Kent spent several years working as Project Manager at CBT, a prestigious downtown Boston firm. It was freelance work however, that consumed much of Kent's spare time. With the growing demand for Kent's accomplished services, Duckham Architecture was formed in 1996.
