Pete J. Vallas, A.I.A., Architect is a full service custom residential architectural firm with a long history of listening to clients and providing attentive personal service. Our firm has built an extensive portfolio of "from the ground up" custom residences, major additions and alterations, not so major small remodeling projects, historic adaptive reuses, specialty retail shops and houses of worship. NCARB certified, we currently are licensed in Alabama, Florida and Louisiana with projects either under development or under construction in all three states.
Regardless of style, our work relies heavily on the incorporation of visual axes that organize the plan and lead the eye from room to room and from indoors to outdoors. Rhythm and repetition, balance and proportion, harmony and mathematics; the sophisticated manipulation of these components results in work that appears effortless.
Since our founding in 1996, we have prided ourselves in satisfying countless repeat clients who appreciate that our work is as fresh and timeless a decade later as the day it was completed. For some families we are on second and third homes, as well as working for second generations. We are also proud of our reputation for sticking to clients' budgets and schedules. As stewards of their construction dollars, we know how to spend it wisely and make it go the distance.
Pete J. Vallas is a classicist who finds inspiration wherever he travels. While he lives and works in a masterfully restored 1937 English Period Revival cottage in Mobile's midtown, Pete's passions run closer to Mies van der Rohe's Farnsworth House. Quite simply, he appreciates architecture of all genres, and a quick perusal of his built work reflects a wide variety of languages in which he is fluent. Pete is passionate about his work and interested in hearing about your next construction project.
