Meet Anthi

Let’s Discover What We Can Create Together

Anthi Frangiadis is an architect, planner and artist whose professional career is currently based in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Educated at the Rhode Island School of Design where she received a Bachelor of Architecture & Bachelor of Fine Arts, with a Concentration in Art History, her artwork compliments her professional career as an architect.  She finds drawing meditative and communicative.

Anthi fosters community involvement and currently serves as the Chair of the AHA! Steering Committee.  Throughout her career she has served as a board member for Marion Art Center, Cape Cod Canal Region Chamber of Commerce, Mayflower Bank, Boys & Girls Club of Greater New Bedford/Wareham, and the Wareham Village Association. She served on the Wareham Planning Board and various sub committees for seven years when she was recognized by the Southeastern Regional Planning & Economic Development District with Special Recognition.

With a passion for infusing art in architecture, I take a different approach to bringing architectural projects to life. I use distinctive freehand drawing in the design process and weave art and community into spaces where people live and thrive. It all starts with an idea, full of potential, and ready to be transformed. Let’s discover what we can create together.

A Unique Art & Design Shop
The Drawing Room
The joy and creativity infused in our architectural projects eventually spilled over into an art and design shop for you. The Drawing Room is a place for you to find inspiration for your creative design projects, plus the materials you need to make them a reality. Looking for the perfect light? A statement work of art? That precise color of Farrow & Ball paint? A gift for an artful friend? That, and so much more, is what you'll find inside The Drawing Room. The Drawing Room is located at 22 William St. in historic downtown New Bedford.
