Graduating from Virginia Tech's architecture program in 1985, Pete apprenticed with Architecture firms in New York City and Boston. Seeking a broad experience, he worked on projects ranging from small shops and restaurants in NYC's SOHO district to the 21 million dollar A.I.A. gold medal-winning Hostos Community Center. Fostering an interest in vernacular buildings and the patterns of small towns, Pete moved to the Shenandoah Valley in 1995. In Carter + Burton Architecture, he has found a firm who shares a design philosophy which respects a building's relationship to time as well as to its surroundings.
