Working primarily in Nova Scotia, Canada, where proposed projects tend to lack large budgets or extraordinary resources, Peter Braithwaite Studio pursues novel and unique approaches to the otherwise ordinary vernacular assemblies and humble material palettes. Acting as both the architects and the builders, Peter Braithwaite Studio draws inspiration from the place in which the work resides and strives to create engaging sensory experiences without the requirement of expensive materials or complicated builds. The results are beautiful yet familiar forms that both respect the natural landscape and forge new paths within Atlantic Canadian architecture.
This first monograph from the firm features 10 built projects and 10 projects in the development stage documented through sketches, diagrams, physical models, and professional images of construction and finished work captured by Canada’s leading architectural photographer, Ema Peter.
