RODE Logo_Black forweb.png


RODE is a Boston-based team of architects, designers, and urban planners who know that great design has the power to transform our environment.


We have cultivated a network of driven people - employees, clients, builders, community members - who share this mission, and know that working collaboratively is the best way to achieve our goals. The breadth and depth of our collective capabilities enable us to apply our practice to make positive change in communities across the region.

Founded in 2006 by Principals Kevin Deabler and Eric Robinson, the firm’s capabilities span across a wide variety of services including architecture, interiors, urban design, and master planning. See Our Work for examples of our design solutions in a broad array of project types.

The most transformational ideas come from the collective efforts of remarkable people

working together.

“The Boston–based duo brings background buildings into the foreground with strong formal moves.”

“And there are few firms more involved right now in this transformation than RODE Architects... For two Dorchester guys who aspire to shape the city they live in, watching this area’s revival — through a transition from old industrial to vibrant residential — is particularly satisfying.”
