We decided to call ourselves Method Architecture Studio because we have a method to each part of our process. Our combined 15 years of experience in construction and design give us the background and confidence to tackle any design feat. From high end residential homes to light commercial structures, we enjoy taking on new styles, ambitions and designs all the time.

Method Architecture Studio brings sustainable and energy efficient knowledge, ideas and techniques to each project, knowing that the built environment has the ability to make the world a better place.  Each individual project has distinct goals and is set on an individual site, Method Architecture Studio works with each client to decide what techniques are right for them and their project.  We appreciate that our clients face a constant challenge in balancing the cost of quality design with end project value. Method Architectural Studio addresses this challenge from the onset with cost transparency and creative solutions that place your core values at the forefront of the project.


Pete Heintzelman, the founder of Method Architecture Studio, has more than 20 years’ experience in the design and construction industry.  He has worked on projects from coast to coast ranging in scope and scale.  Some of his most recent and best known work is on the shores of New York’s beautiful Finger Lakes.

Currently, Pete spends his time in his Stowe, VT studio working on a versatile range of projects including custom single family homes, restaurants, breweries and retail shops.  Pete’s attention to detail and personalized client relationships elevate each particular project to an exciting and pleasing work of architecture.  When Pete is not in the studio, he is enjoying all that life has to offer with his wife, Carrie, and sons, Connor and Gavin.  He feels that his best work is complimented by time retreating to the outdoors in feet of snow or head high waves.  “My work is a lifestyle and it’s always ongoing.  Creating interesting spaces come from experiencing them first”.
