Peter Burke Landscape Architecture is an emerging design firm which holds simplicity, function, context and value over all other factors. Peter is a registered Landscape Architect in the State of Maine.
Peter was born in the mountains of Venezuela, grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, and learned how to build stuff along the coast of Maine. He attended the University of Maine at Orono, where he received a bachelor’s degree in International Affairs, and later, after working in non-profit development and traveling all over North America, Mexico and Central America, attended the University of Massachusetts in Amherst and earned a masters degree in Landscape Architecture in 2000.
Since then he has been either building or designing landscape-centric places that improve the quality of people’s environments and lives. He worked for six years in multidisciplinary architecture and engineering firms, and his breadth of experience and interest in working with allied professionals is one of his great strengths.
He lives with his architect-wife and two young boys in a John Calvin Stevens millhouse perched on the banks of the Presumpscot River in Westbrook, Maine. He loves being outdoors with his hands in the dirt, but riding bikes and running are other things he’s passionate about.
