Discussions with Peter Twohy (Pt. 2)

Peter received his Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Notre Dame in 1988.

In 1991 he moved to Germany, learned enough German to work as the lead designers of a German firm, Diniaware Architects in Königstein.

Peter then moved to Baltimore in 1995 and worked for 10 years for the premier residential architects in the area. There he honed his craft of designing beautiful and practical client-focused homes.

He opened 2e Architects in 2005. A couple of years later he changed residential architecture by offering Unlimited 3D Renderings to all of his clients. Then in 2016, he began innovating again - this time pioneering the use of Virtual Reality. In addition to offering this absolutely stunning preview of their homes to all of his clients, Peter is also teaching architects all over America (and the world) how to transform their practices into Virtual Reality practices. 

After 16 years of accolades, awards, articles, amazing homes, ecstatic clients, and innovation after innovation 2e Architects is now the premiere residential architecture firm in Baltimore.
