Homsey Architects office exterior

Firm Profile

Homsey Architects is an award-winning architecture firm founded by noted husband-and-wife architects, Victorine du Pont Homsey and Samuel Eldon Homsey in 1935. Located in Wilmington, Delaware, the firm has been a key contributor to the revitalization efforts of downtown Wilmington, with many projects completed along the Market Street corridor. The firm is closely tied to the artistic and horticultural heritage of the Brandywine Valley as well, executing multiple projects at the premier gardens, museums, and performance spaces of the area. The firm’s work ranges in scale and type from the design of a specialized university building to a pedestrian footbridge for a neighborhood; from the historic restoration of an entire city block of mixed use buildings to an interior restoration of a small church. The firm’s residential work includes multi and single family new construction, additions, and renovations all varying in size and budget.

Consistent with the founders’ beliefs, Homsey’s process involves clients, engineers, consultants, and contactors in a collaborative relationship that integrates the expertise of each to find elegant design solutions. The goal is always to meld form, function, and budget to create enduring architecture.

We believe successful projects must be reflective of our clients needs and desires through a creative, collaborative and iterative design process, with a commitment to exceptional service.
