PETER WILLETT B.Sci(Arch) / B.Arch (Hons) USyd AIA
Nominated registered architect (NSW) no.5110
Peter established PWA in 1992, after gaining a broad range of architectural experience both in Australia and internationally. Previously Peter had won first prize in the Taylor Square Design Competition. As an Associate of MSJ Keys Young he organised the winning design for the Southern CBD Design Competition and the urban design concept for the Sydney Olympic Bid. He was also involved in the design of many components of the public open space at Darling Harbour.
Following this, Peter spent a period of time overseas and while working in Basel and Zurich, he was exposed to the rigors and quality of Swiss residential design. This experience proved to be one of the influences in the establishment of PWA.
Peter oversees all projects from concept design to completion. He reinforces that each project is a team effort, and encourages the whole office to be focused on achieving the best results for each of our clients through collaboration and discussion.
Peter is interested in how a house can conform to an urban typology yet also present a unique solution for each client. He sees that the delicate task of striking a balance between a project’s relationship to the streetscape and its individual expression creates both a fascinating challenge at the outset and significant rewards at the end.
