The principal of the studio, David Anand Peterson was born in Georgetown Guyana and immigrated to Canada as a young child. His formal architectural education began at Sheridan College in Toronto where he received a Diploma in Architectural Building Technology. He studied Art and Architectural History at Carleton University in Ottawa before attending the University of Toronto’s school of Architecture, Landscape and Design where he received his professional degree in architecture. David did further study in architecture and urban design at Delft University; the renowned architecture school in Holland. David interned with notable Toronto based practices of Levitt-Goodman architects, Johnson Chou Design, and Stone McQuire Vogt Architects. The projects completed with these firms ranged in scale, budget, building and construction types. From a 1 million dollar conversion of a historic bank to a 50 million dollar newly constructed multi-residential building each project had the same underlying lesson – every building endeavour has the possibility of being exceptional if client and architect are committed to it.
