Toby Witte

Design + Build


A quarter century of experience in the world of design and construction come to bear on Toby Witte’s work. German by heritage and upbringing, born in Peru, Toby has had the privilege to study architecture, building science, and drafting in Germany and in the USA.

Between various employments with architect, engineering, and construction firms, he graduated cum laude from the School of Architecture at UNCC. As a licensed builder he ran his previous design/build companies Dialect Design and Qube11 for over a decade until he founded Wittehaus in 2017.

In 2004 he received the Medal & Henry Adams Certificate of Merit by The American Institute of Architects. And in 2018 the 3rd People’s Choice Award of the North Carolina Modernist Houses Matsumoto Prize.

Wittehaus’ purpose is to elevate the magic of every home owner’s life experience. One modern house at a time.

Wittehaus is a boutique design-build firm specializing in innovative, energy-efficient, luxury modern homes. It provides custom design services for individual clients and built homes ready for sale. It prides itself in drawing inspirations from a vast international landscape of contemporary design and strives to learn, innovate, and add to the canon of an enriching built environment. Wittehaus is currently focused on exploring the qualities and interplay of space, texture, light, and structure. And how these qualities work to create livable surroundings that provide a sense of beauty, richness, warmth, and depth.
