STREAM offers a wide array of services from architecture and landscape architecture to environmental graphics. Our staff includes experienced designers who have spent decades shaping the built environment including work on custom residential projects to urban planning.
Collaboration is at the heart of our process and we enjoy teaming with other architects, landscape architects, urban planners, engineers, interior designers, product designers and new media programmers to tackle design problems from the smallest household object to an entire new urban community.
With direct client participation to help shape and inform final design solutions, our overarching objective is to create pure forms made of natural materials or processes which continue to perform and delight well beyond our incredibly short lifetimes.
“We just want you to know what a PLEASURE it is to work with you - your skill; practical, intelligent solutions; and easy-going, efficient, cooperative style are both delightful and foreign to us (in a "what-a-relief" kind of way)!
Every time we interact with you, we seem to come out better than when we went in :D
Thank you for helping us get to the building permits finish line!”

“Noah presented an innovative design that dealt with the constraints of the space to be remodeled. The rendering that he presented gave us a visual concept of his proposal allowing us to understand the design and how it would meet our objectives for the project. He gave careful consideration to both the inside and outside spaces resulting in a successful renovation when viewed from both directions. The window and door placements were very important in bringing in natural light and the view of the outside environment into the space. The space is attractive and comfortable. Noah’s development of the project fully met our expectation and desires for the space.”

“Noah Demarest has been a joy to work with on our Belle Sherman Cottages development in Ithaca. From the beginning, Noah understood exactly what we were trying to accomplish with the project and worked closely with me to design a residential neighborhood that is both visually appealing and financially successful.”

“I just wanted to say that we had a really, really great meeting today with Rob. He was kind to us and had good suggestions all around, but was happy to entertain our ideas. I came out of it thinking what a pleasure it was to work with you guys. Thank you for letting us work with you on this project!”

“We have a stone house built in the late '30s; it's a bit unusual in design, but has a lot of charm, and is in a beautiful setting in an historic community. The idea of putting on an addition was very daunting in that it entailed a high level of complexity and a difficult build, but we were feeling very pinched for space and decided we had to take it on. Noah instantly understood our aesthetic sensibilities and site concerns and within a very short time had drawn us a plan that exactly met our needs but which also showed respect for and complemented in every way the eccentric charm of our house. He was a delight to work with throughout a long and complicated process. We could not be more pleased with the result and give STREAM Collaborative our strongest endorsement. We look forward to working with them again when we renovate our kitchen.”
