At Waechter Architecture (WA), we are strong believers in the ability of architecture to heighten and inform the experience of community and landscape. We feel an instinctual draw to places that contain a distinct character and coherence. These are the environments in which we feel most alive, awake, and present; where the relationship of elements is apparent and intertwined.
Throughout our work, we seek to sensitively respond to the unique conditions and character of a site to discover and evoke a similar sense of clarity. Identifying and preserving existing relationships is a key foundation to every project we work on and allows us to create new spaces for inhabitation, conversation and engagement that invigorates the latent potential of a place. This process of examination, understanding, and distillation transforms complex criteria and design problems into simple, bold, and concise solutions.
More than anything, we learn from each other. At WA we strive to build a culture that encourages, supports, and celebrates the voice of every employee. We work to be an office that is inclusive and values varied viewpoints and considerations. We believe that when people feel respected and included they can be more creative, innovative, and successful. We are committed to staying engaged in the practice of equity. This work fuels our design and connects us closer to our clients and the communities we serve. We strive to stay open to each other's ideas and feedback while also being decisive, productive, forward-moving, and action-oriented.
