Our Studio

Over sixteen years ago Pete and Bob formed an architectural collaboration that has evolved into a reputable residential design team that specializes in the design or redesign of hundreds of homes in time honored neighborhoods across the country as well as private retreats on unique parcels of land that take advantage of their individual characteristics.

Through depictive hand drawn illustrations and efficient use of computer generated models and drawings, Pete and Bob create a very inclusive design process that strives to create timeless architectural solutions that coincide with our clients desires, that are respectful of the owner’s  budget and that result in a design that becomes an integral part of the way they live.

WAY design studios has intentionally remained a two person collaboration so that Pete and Bob can personally give each project the creativity and attention to detail that it deserves.  Pete and Bob stay in constant communication with all of their clients throughout the design phase, the development of the construction drawings and the construction process.  Both Pete and Bob are rare in the residential design profession in that they both have years of actual construction experience.  In the past, they have been involved in the actual construction of dozens of homes; swinging hammers to frame the structures that they and others have designed, installing finish trim, building furniture and constructing and applying various architectural details to the homes.  This perspective on the construction process allows Pete and Bob to have a unique relationship with the builders that they interact with as well as the ability to develop a strong set of construction drawings that brings out the best quality and efficient production in the builders and fabricators involved in all of their projects.

The process of hiring a design firm to create your new home or design your addition should be a pleasant experience.  At WAY design studios, Pete and Bob strive to make this journey enjoyable and result in a solution that is not only aesthetically unique but liveable.
