Rob Whitten, Whitten Architects

Architect Rob Whitten founded Whitten Architects in 1986 and has specialized in New England residential design since 1990. Over the years, Whitten has deliberately kept the size of the firm small so that he can remain involved in every project the team takes on. He attended undergraduate school at Middlebury College in Vermont and graduate school at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. A member of the Portland Society for Architecture and the American Institute of Architects, he believes that a well-designed home should fit into its environment. He and his wife, Robin, enjoy walking tours in Italy; Rob illustrates and Robin writes a daily travel journal. Their son, Denney, is also an architect and works for Skidmore, Owings & Merrill in New York City.
