In 1993, when Steven Mueller first established his business as a boutique architectural firm in Greenwich, Connecticut, he could not have anticipated the economic ups and downs of the last twenty years. From the building boom in the late nineties to the post-recession renaissance, Steven Mueller Architects, LLC has thrived as a boutique architectural firm with a practice centered upon the dreams of his clients. To quote a recent client, “Mueller’s skill is transforming those dreams into reality by creating architectural designs that inspire. He is a gifted storyteller with the ability to translate his clients’ ideas into a vision which evokes the very essence of your thoughts”.

Mueller prides himself on his personal commitment to educating his clients on the architectural process to manage expectations and guide them through. Late last year, Mueller relocated his offices to the newly renovated shingle style office building at 32 Field Point Road, Greenwich. He also expanded his staff by adding two full time architects.

The firm’s work exemplifies a personal commitment to achieving the finest architectural expression through a cooperative relationship with the client by:
     • designing and developing practical, dynamic, and creative solutions to enhance 
        the lives of the occupants.
     • being a full-service enterprise dedicated to design excellence specializing in 
        Architecture, Planning, Construction, and Interior Design.
     • being sincerely committed to work creatively and administratively with maximum 
        efficiency on each project.

From estates to cottages, each project begins with a dialogue between Steven Mueller and the client. A design concept, created in response to the client’s ideas and desires, establishes architectural imagery, style and space. This informed process ultimately results in a residence of distinction.

The firm’s influences can be summarized by Principal Steven Mueller. “My architectural inspiration comes from the rich architectural history and compendium of architects and architectural firms who designed country homes and estates between 1860 and 1940. This fuels my passion for great architecture. Delano & Aldrich, Cass Gilbert, Richard Morris Hunt, and McKim, Mead & White rank among the architects I admire and study.”

Steven Mueller received his architectural degree from The Ohio State University. Steven has been practicing architecture since 1977 and has been in private practice since 1993. He is a licensed architect currently registered in the States of Connecticut, New York, and Massachusetts and is certified by the National Council of Architectural Registration Board. In addition, he is a registered Interior Designer licensed in the State of Connecticut. Professional memberships include the American Institute of Architects, the Connecticut Society of Architects, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
