Cambridge, Massachusetts–based architect Peter Rose has built on every scale during the first three decades of his practice. High-profile projects, such as his master plan for the Montreal waterfront and his award-winning Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal have brought him both public recognition and the respect of his peers. Besides being known for his artisan's love of solid building materials, craftsmanship, and old-fashioned building methods, it is perhaps no surprise that his residential projects function as laboratories for new ideas. Peter Rose: Houses presents five such houses in complete detail from client collaboration and site evaluation to construction. Rose draws inspiration from the outward simplicity and order of houses of the past but recognizes that their quiet strength depends on a complexity that comes only from thoughtful consideration of site, plan, exterior, and details. Rose insists on a close collaboration with his clients, who come to him because of his reputation for deliberately restrained, livable homes in harmony with the landscape. These residences and second homes—on Martha's Vineyard, in New York City, Vermont, and Connecticut—are masterful combinations of light, texture, and weight. They are an exquisite fusion of the natural and the man-made, of craft and architecture.


New England based architect Peter Rose is a leader in the architectural design profession. Since beginning his practice in 1978, Rose has received numerous awards for residential, institutional, and urban design projects. The scale of his projects has varied from large urban design projects such as the Old Port of Montreal Waterfront Master Plan, to smaller renovations and additions.

In addition to his professional practice, Rose has maintained a long-term involvement in architectural education. He is adjunct professor of Architecture at Harvard University's Graduate School of Design and has taught at Princeton University, McGill University, and at the University of Toronto.

Rose received a Master of Architecture degree and Bachelor of Arts degree from Yale University. He is licensed in the provinces of Quebec and Ontario, and the states of New York, Michigan, Massachusetts, Maryland, and Montana.

Introduction by architecture historian William Morgan, author of The Cape Cod Cottage. He is an expert on New England architecture and has taught at Princeton, University of Louisville, Roger Williams University, Wheaton College, and currently Brown University.

Foreword by Pritzker Prize winner Rafael Moneo
