Ellen Cassilly Architect


Drawn to Durham 30 years ago, Ellen Cassilly established Ellen Cassilly Architects in the heart of the culturally rich city. The ECA studio seeks out meaningful community based projects which reinforce the sense of place and spark delight.

All of our design solutions grow out of the site and collaboration with our clients. We welcome creative dialogue with local craftspeople, artists, and consultants in all stages of our projects. We create structures with a timelessness that are modern at their core. We love creating whole new projects from the ground up and are equally intrigued by adaptive reuse projects, exploring historic or new materials used in inventive ways, as this is often the best way to serve both the community and environment.
