Peter Hawrylewicz

Peter Hawrylewicz is the principal designer at PHDesign. He and partner Ken Lieber started the Miami Beach based design company in 1999. Their desire was to create a company that could address all the residential design needs of their clients whether it was architecture, interior, or furniture design. Their goal is to create environments that are harmonic to their surroundings as well as to the client´s individual vision. Peter´s background in architecture enables him to provide his clients with a panoptic approach to their program requirements; in other words from the ground up. "Good design is environmentally and historically informed, but intrinsically forward in its interpretation and formulation".

Although based in Miami, PHDesign has designed homes in a variety of locations including New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles in both rural and urban settings. The firm is currently working on a penthouse on the Corso Vittorio Emanuele in Rome. In addition to residential design, PHDesign is broadening its portfolio with luxury yacht design. “Presently we are in our final year of a 4 year build of what will be one of the world’s largest private sailing yachts.” Each project benefits from the firm's extensive knowledge of world markets and resources. PHDesign's ambition is to provide their clients with a myriad of resources whether it is furniture, objects, materials or craftsmen to help achieve their goal. "Each environment we create is specific to time and place, but global and hopefully timeless in its appeal".
