Truth Box regularly partners with D&P Real Estate to provide design/build services all from the same office. With equal parts architects, developers, designers, builders, and construction managers, our team comprises a cross-disciplinary group of design and development professionals interested in finding new models for building sustainable, energy-efficient buildings.
Peter Gill Case
The founder and fearless leader of Truth Box, Mr. Case received his Masters in Architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design and his undergraduate degree from Brown University in Urban Studies. Throughout his career, Mr. Case has built an architectural practice around a broad definition of sustainable design. In some instances, this has led to the adaptive re-use of older buildings and large-scale mill buildings. In other instances, this has translated into using alternative building materials and strategies such as straw bale homes, passive solar design, structural insulated panels, and even shipping containers. Mr. Case began sustainable development work in 2004 in order demonstrate to a variety of markets that green, conscientious design enhances the revenue and balance sheet of real estate ventures, without necessarily costing more than conventional building.
A newly licensed architect, Rob is the behind-the-scenes guy pulling together the drawing sets, working with the building inspector, wading through the building science literature, updating the website, and generally trying to keep up with the other two. He serves as the project manager for most projects in the office including the 30-unit residential building at 93 Cranston Street, the Urban Greens Grocery Co-op, and the 24-unit multifamily rehab at 101 Hillside Ave. Rob has been with Truth Box for four years and holds a M.Arch from the Rhode Island School of Design and a B.A. from Cornell University.
Rob and his family have just re-located to the Pioneer Valley in Western Massachusetts, where Rob will be continuing to work remotely for Truth Box Architects.
Laura is the newest member of the team and, as a practicing architectural designer, builder, and fabricator, she brings a unique set of skills to Truth Box. She received her M.Architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design and her B.S. in architecture from Northeastern University in Architecture. Apart from her work at Truth Box, Laura also co-owns a wood and metal shop providing her space to experiment and test new ideas. Given her building expertise, Laura approaches every project with a thorough understanding of materiality and detailing.
