We are architects of homes. Our projects range from small remodels to large scale residences. On every project our mission is to collaborate with our clients to understand the unique context of their project, and together create an inspirational, sustainable, and lasting addition to the built environment. WA design was established in 1985 by David Stark Wilson, AIA. Our design philosophy emphasizes the inter-relationship of building and site. Each design begins as a considered response to a set of criteria dictated by the site and client. Although progressive in approach, our designs draw heavily on the vernacular building of the area in which we are working. Ordering principles for a given project borrow from their context and often metaphorically relate to the natural landscape. This connects our buildings to their specific site and circumstance in a meaningful way. A crucial component of the overall design objective on each project is to apply the design of sustainable and solar features as an integral component of the architecture. From initial building siting concepts through building organization and material selection, each phase is approached with sustainable ideas at the forefront of the design decisions.

Architectural Design Firm - I grew up just north of Chicago, IL - a city that influenced my belief in the importance of Architecture. I have since had the good fortune of living, working and studying in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. I feel that Architecture is best understood and pursued as the union of art, culture and technology. I bring this breadth of cultural experience to bear on all of my design projects. I seek design solutions that make sense for my clients and as a result, I'm comfortable working in multiple idioms of design - Contemporary, Traditional, some combination of the two; ultimately, I judge my work on how well it reflects my clients. In addition to Architecture, I have a passion for opera, traveling, the arts and history. I also coach a youth lacrosse team, and play in a men’s hockey league.

Our particular strengths include responsiveness, thoroughness, communication and flexibility.
