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 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 assembles. 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 contains 10 built projects and 10 projects in the development stage that are expressed through sketches, construction images, physical models, and professional images captured by Canada’s leading architectural photographer, Ema Peter.
