For the past 25 years, Peter Twombly has put his construction, design and planning experience to work on houses and commercial projects in and around Rhode Island. New England architecture seems imprinted in his DNA and his work both reflects and abstracts traditional vernacular forms, proportions and detailing. Twombly graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with the American Institute of Architecture Henry Adams Medal and subsequently worked on large-scale institutional projects with Michael Graves and Hansen Lind Meyer. His work has won numerous design awards and has been published in national and regional magazines and books on residential design. He practices with Jim Estes in their Newport firm Estes/Twombly Architects. Yankee Modern, a book of their work, was published by Princeton Architectural Press in 2010.
