ELD Architecture was formed by Erika Dodge in 2018 to provide thoughtful design to site sensitive places. ELD strives on a collaborative and interactive process between Architect, Client, and Builder throughout the project.
Erika’s passion for architecture began at a young age. In elementary school she asked her parents for architectural software for Christmas. She followed her passion and pursued her Master of Architecture from Wentworth Institute of Technology. During her time at Wentworth, Erika spent a semester studying architecture in Berlin, Germany, and completed three internships throughout New England gaining valuable experience prior to graduation.
Following the completion of her collegiate studies, Erika worked at architecture firms in New Hampshire and Maine where she collaborated on a variety of project types, including municipal buildings, hotels, restaurants, and luxurious mountain residences. Eventually her love for the mountains brought Erika and her husband to Tahoe City, California where she was able focus her career on custom residential design. After three wonderful years in California, Erika and Luke returned home to the east coast to pursue an idyllic live, work, play lifestyle close to family. Erika and her husband designed and built their home in Morristown, Vermont. In her spare time, Erika enjoys skiing, hiking, and running alongside Luke, their daughter Hadley, and Golden Retriever Watson.
Erika is a licensed Architect in Vermont, New Hampshire, and New York, NCARB certified, and a LEED AP.
