Architecture is a cornerstone of civilization and has the ability to transcend generations. Cultural legacy accompanies the built environment, and should engender our values, heritage, and beliefs. At WAI we also take the approach that architecture should balance human needs and environmental responsibility, while meeting project pro-formas and construction goals. WAI provides a full spectrum of architectural services to create aesthetically relevant facilities and environments that can achieve long term marketability, and operational and investment benefits for our clients.

The built environment should be designed to meet human demands while responsibly taking into account environmental impacts. Good design is sustainable, and during the course of design for each and every project we evaluate opportunities to utilize site, materials, and natural resources more efficiently. WAI offers cost viable green solutions and recommendations across all of our design disciplines. We do this within a collaborate framework that vests building owners, operators, engineers, designers, contractors, and end-users into the sustainable outcome of the project.
For nearly a decade we served as a design partner for BMW and MINI USA, a relationship that we hold in high esteem. We have also served in a similar role for Mercedes-Benz USA, and most currently for entreprenuerial healthcare start-up company, Exer. These partnerships provide us with deep insight into corporate facility program implementation. It also gives us creative latitude to work directly with corporate executives to develop design solutions for facilities that harmonize aesthetics and operational efficiency.
We customize our service offerings to strategically fit the needs of each individual partnership.
