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.
