Structured Plans

By Jennifer Wood

Let us share something truly remarkable with you. Five short years after it was founded, Nova Scotia’s Peter Braithwaite Studio has been recognized by Wallpaper* magazine as being one of the most promising practices in the world.

The firm’s founder, Peter Braithwaite, who is originally from Kingsville, Ontario, is passionate about whatever he commits to and has grown comfortable taking risks to realize his evolving aspirations. While he is a highly sought-after architect, his roots lie in carpentry and construction. Earlier in his career, he recognized a deep desire to have artistic direction over the structures he was building so, in 2007, he traded in his tool belt for a laptop to study at the Dalhousie University School of Architecture in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He received the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Student Medal for achieving the highest level of academic excellence in his graduating class, and he now serves as adjunct professor at his alma mater.
