RKTB Architects, P.C.
Peter Bafitis, AIA, has over thirty years of experience in the design and construction of a diverse range of projects including multifamily housing, schools, hospitals, transportation projects, adaptive reuse, and large scale urban design work. This experience has been concentrated in the New York metropolitan area but has also included work in Washington, DC and Florida as well as Japan and Nigeria. Mr. Bafitis has focused his career on strengthening the urban environment by reinforcing the social institutions that sustain it. This has centered on neighborhood preservation achieved most prominently through the design and integration of affordable housing, K-12 schools, and transportation facilities.
As managing principal at RKTB since 2004, Mr. Bafitis has been responsible for building design, new project development, and overall company management. Since joining the firm in 1995 he has directed some of RKTB’s largest projects for both public and private clients, advancing the firm’s already recognized expertise in multifamily housing and adaptive re-use. He has been especially instrumental in bolstering the firm’s commitment to public sector work which has included extensive experience with many New York City and State agencies.
A registered architect in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, he currently serves as co-chairman of the AIA NY Chapter Housing Committee and is also a member of the CFA Foundation Scholarship Committee.
