Who We Are:


Architectural Insights, based in Palmer, Massachusetts, was established in March of 1988 by Lawrence E. Tuttle and Robert S. Haveles as a union of professional development and architectural design services. Since that time, Mr. Tuttle and Mr. Haveles have built Architectural Insights into a strong, diverse, and well-respected practice based on their combined and diverse architectural experiences, practical construction knowledge, and strengths in comprehensive project administration and on-site coordination.

They consistently bring contextual sensitivity and creative approaches to design projects, while complimenting them with traditional methods and innovative products. The partners bring those varied experiences in new construction, renovation, historic preservation and building additions with consistent enthusiasm.

Architectural Insights has chosen to concentrate its current efforts in local communities in both the public and private sectors, and supports its regional base by using local resources and skilled craftsmen in the provision of appropriate design solutions. The principals reinforce their commitment to the area by relocating Architectural Insights' offices into the former Thorndike Street School building, now known as the Depot Village Professional Building, located in downtown Palmer at 3 Converse Street and participating in work / study programs throughout the area.

Title:   Principal / President / Architect
Mr. Tuttle received a Bachelor's Degree in Environmental Design from Miami University in Ohio, and a Master's Degree in Architecture from the University of Wisconsin. Professionally, he obtained liscensure in 1984 and held various design and management positions with four architectural firms, which led to his involvement in several well-regarded published works receiving regional and national attention. His creative pursuits in the design, promotion, and operation of exhibits, trade shows, and special events for the city of Chicago, lead to involvement in the preliminary work on Chicago's bid for a World's Fair and site planning for the Pope's visit to the City of Denver, Colorado.
Mr. Tuttle has been a participant in the Pan Mass Challenge for the past five years consecutively. This entails biking from Sturbridge to Bourne MA for one day of the ride, and on the final day, from Bourne to Provincetown. A total of 200 miles total! If you would like to support his efforts and the causes of the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, please do not hesitate to contact him.
