With a practice spanning decades, Peace Design is well regarded in the architecture and design community. We are known for creating authentic environments that reflect the true lifestyle and values of our clientele. William Peace, our founder and leader, is deeply involved in every interior project entrusted to our care. Our dedicated team has worked together for nearly twenty years. Throughout this time, some of us have taken a brief respite to pursue further design training or to raise small children, but our shared commitment to our work has always brought us back together. The continual pursuit of excellence is a virtue we hold highly no matter the position we fulfill. Our firm nurtures a creative environment and is graciously balanced by an administrative staff that ensures our studio director, senior and junior designers, architect and interns align with sound business goals. At our core, we are a passionate group of people who love what we do and love doing it together as a close-knit team.
