For the past 30 years, Peter Pennoyer Architects has upheld the gold standard of traditional residential architecture. Their diverse portfolio of projects, which includes spectacular single-family houses across the country, museum exhibitions, high-rise buildings, and even the clock at the heart of Moynihan Train Hall at New York Penn Station, represents their refined vision and creative process. The firm’s new book, Peter Pennoyer Architects: City | Country—the first collection of work to be released in over a decade— explores 19 of their most recent and exciting projects. Join Peter for an exclusive look, as he opens the doors to stylish city residences—from a historic townhouse in Greenwich Village to a triplex on the Ladies’ Mile of Fifth Avenue, and a riverfront Art Deco apartment—as well as spectacular country and coastal properties, including an Arts & Crafts house in Ohio’s Chagrin River Valley, a 17th-century Colonial restoration project on Long Island, and a Shingle-style summer house on an island in Maine. As he shares photos and talks about the process of designing distinctive architecture, Peter will offer insight into how he and his firm take a client’s vision and transform it into houses and buildings that are informed by tradition and history with a contemporary perspective and designed, above all, to endure.
