Few architects have been integral to the design and execution of as many large, complex projects as Peter has. His expertise ranges from a firm understanding of the planning and functional issues of hospitality and public assembly architecture to detailed knowledge of building systems and construction. Prior to joining BLUR Workshop, he worked at tvsdesign on some of the firm’s most complex projects. For both the McCormick Place South Expansion and the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, he was involved from concept design through project opening. These projects are at their core, very large mixed used projects that complement exhibit spaces with conference, meeting, retail, food service, and support facilities.
For the last decade, Peter’s career has shifted to focus on hospitality projects. He acted as Project Manager and Project Architect for the new 1175 key Washington Marriott Marquis and the neighboring Columbia Place dual-brand Marriott and multi-family residential project. Other projects include hotel renovations with the need for continued operation throughout construction, including Marriott Downtown Philadelphia, Ritz Amelia Island, and Orlando World Center Marriott. Lately, Peter has led project quality and technical efforts for Gaylord Texan, Opryland Waterpark, Virgin Nashville and several renovations for Hilton, Hyatt and independent hotel brands.
Peter approaches his clients, contractors, consultants, and everyone else with fairness, forthrightness, and respect. The result is that all of his clients return with new opportunities. Consultants and former project contractors are not far behind. People who have worked with Peter want to work with him again. He is humble, extremely effective, and goes out of his way to foster productive teams and successful projects.
