After 10 years, we are excited to announce that Peter Soutowood is returning to the Platt/Whitelaw team.
Peter will be rejoining the firm as a senior associate, bringing his 18 years of architectural and entrepreneurial experience back to our firm in his new role.
A well-respected and celebrated member of the industry, Peter is not only an accomplished architect with an impressive portfolio, but also a friend and colleague with a comprehensive understanding of the nuances of our public and community-based projects. His history of building attractive and vibrant communities was, and will continue to be, an asset to Platt/Whitelaw.
Peter proved to be a valuable member of our team as a project architect for Platt/Whitelaw from 2007 to 2012. His project management skills and oversight of designers, engineers and construction management staff facilitated the trajectory of projects of all sizes, in every stage from design and planning through completion. His ongoing involvement in both professional and community organizations is proof of his commitment to the industry and continued expertise in the industry.
Since working with us, Peter has gone on to hold various positions at other architecture firms, including his own. He has remained active in his community, serving as chair of the Design Review Board in La Mesa for three years and as chair of the La Mesa Village Association since July of 2016. Peter also remained active with his alma mater, the NewSchool of Architecture and Design, where he previously served as chair of the Alumni Mentorship Committee and as both a board member and president of the Alumni Advisory Board.
We are thrilled about Peter’s return and can’t wait to apply his expansive knowledge and expertise to our projects.
