Dartagnan Brown | Principal


As founding Principal of Embarc, Dartagnan personally ushers the majority of our projects through the approval process by working closely with the Boston Planning and Development Authority, various neighborhood groups, city councilors, and the Zoning Board of Appeals.

Dartagnan’s significant project design and management experience is an asset to buildings and spaces of any size. His clients quickly see his passion and attention to detail in everything from Embarc’s luxury brownstone renovations to our new residential multi-family complexes; from master planning efforts to successful commercial projects for national brand companies.

His dedication to a project’s needs and vision is evident in Embarc’s singular reputation for going above and beyond, ensuring that each client finds success in their investments.

Dartagnan’s childhood years spent living in Iran, Singapore, India, and Hong Kong influenced his early love of design and aesthetic. He has spent the last 18 years working on some of Boston’s most impactful projects, giving him insight on every level—from applying high-level thinking when planning city blocks with developers to carefully considering intimate details with homeowners. His approach to design and architecture is focused on the balance of aesthetic and practicality, bringing a unique and intuitive vision to Boston and her neighborhoods.

Dartagnan received degrees in Architecture and Building Sciences from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
