Joseph Peltier is an emerging architect who is passionate about design and dedicated to delivering projects which exceed client expectations while operating at the forefront of architectural design.  Joseph purposefully seeks out opportunities to expand his repertoire, and has experience designing projects for residential, commercial (office, hospitality, retail), large-scale mixed-use, and healthcare markets.

With a background in urban planning, Joseph has a strong interest in civic architecture, the design of public space, and socially responsible design.  He sees design as a means to explore the concurrences of culture, politics, ecology, and urbanism and is interested in architecture’s capacity to act as a commentary on society.

Joseph also has an understanding and deep appreciation for the construction process and believes that successful architecture confides in refined craft and detail to gild our surroundings.
