For the past twenty-five years, Peter Pennoyer and his partners have grounded the firm’s projects in a forward-looking interpretation of history; they believe that architectural practices in the past leave us potent lessons that are relevant to contemporary architectural challenges.
Peter Pennoyer Architects is an award-winning practice in traditional architecture recognized as a leader in classicism and historic preservation. Based in Manhattan and with an office in Miami, Florida, the firm has built a substantial and varied body of work across the country and abroad for residential, commercial, and institutional commissions often involving historic buildings.
Peter Pennoyer, FAIA and his four partners, Elizabeth Graziolo, AIA, James Taylor, AIA, Jennifer Gerakaris, AIA, Thomas Nugent, AIA and the firm’s Director of Design, Gregory Gilmartin, have shaped the practice around the proposition that architectural history is a valuable resource and consider each project a research challenge resting on a profound appreciation for and thorough knowledge of history and context.
Architects are encouraged to study and draw inspiration in the over 10,000 volumes in the firm’s research library, resulting in designs that are a convergence of scholarship and creative invention.
The firm relies on traditional methods of design, such as hand drawing, but embraces cutting edge technology and computer design tools.
