About PDAB

Peter Dick Architect & Builder is an architectural firm interested in the synthesis between intellectual and aesthetic approaches to design and their execution through the poetic articulation of fine craftsmanship. Client needs, physical and social contextualism, clarity in structural expression and juxtaposition of natural materials all inform the design process through which custom solutions are created for our clients. Designs that reinforce historical continuity, where socially and culturally appropriate, interest us as much as commissions that desire new forms that reflect the tenor of our age.

Peter Dick Architect & Builder offers full Architectural services, from Master Planning through Conceptual and Design Development to Construction Administration. We respond to client sensibilities, we collaborate well within the teamwork paradigm, and we strive to create solutions that advance the society that we all inhabit.

Peter Dick Architect & Builder also offers general contracting and construction management for select projects. Our 30-year plus experiences in the building field have yielded wide-ranging and nuanced knowledge that informs all of our architectural as well as construction efforts. Particular concerns and interests are in the custom residential realm, when challenge and verve collaborate with conceptual notions of timelessness, sympathetic materiality, and spatial elegance.
