We are Architects | We Are Builders     

Registered architect, Peter B. Paino, founded Paino & Associates 30 years ago.
Peter was raised in the village of Dobbs Ferry, just north of New York City. His earliest influences in building were his father and grandfather who were stonemasons and builders. He has been involved in the construction industry his entire life.


Peter moved to Ohio to attend Kent State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture and Environmental Design in 1978.

His academic training had an emphasis in the use of solar design and energy efficiency and, as a forerunner in the green movement in sustainable architecture; Peter began building eco-friendly homes using new construction techniques and materials. In his earliest projects he incorporated ideas, such as passive-solar design, super insulation construction details and proper solar orientation. He continues to design/build energy efficient buildings today.

As lead architect, Peter has designed and built hundreds of projects from residential remodeling and new homes to all aspects of commercial construction during his career. He provides the same approach to design to each client regardless of the scope of work.
