Design Philosophy

I believe that a great project is the result of a collaboration between design and production.As a Designer and Project Architect, I not only have the ability to create beautiful designs but also the technical expertise to implement them without sacrificing aesthetic quality.

Summary

I have 15 years of experience in all phases of the design process: Conceptual Design, Schematic Design, Design Development, Construction Documents and Construction Administration. I consider myself a "Jack of all Trades" having played multiple roles of projects: Designer, Project Architect, Construction Administration and some Project Management. I have been involved with Commercial, Sports and Healthcare facilities.

Testimonial

“Peter helped out interior design team interface with the architectural team as well as the contract drawings and made sure the documents were accurate and well done.”

“Peter is the kind of architect that can do precise contract document work, then turn around and help to develop a design concept and come up with quick conceptual sketches.He thinks outside the box when needed but then can implement his designs in the documents precisely.He has a gift to detail and design (whether his or anyone else’s) with elegance and finesse.”
