About WBA – Sensible yet artful experiences with impact.

We are more than our work.

We are self-motivated and honest people who approach each challenge with optimistic creativity and practicality. We understand and welcome that each person has their own unique strengths, and through open dialogue and listening, we learn from each other. We continually strive to achieve quality and integrity in our process. Where we gather, we create a safe and healthy place for all, striving for balance between energy spent in the workplace and out. We are committed to helping each other become the best and most authentic version of ourselves.

Our work draws us together.

This commitment to collaboration is grounded in the belief that truly great design must extend well beyond our office walls and is more than the structures we create. It means cultivating a shared vision for design and practice that meets the desires of our clients, is readily constructible by contractors, and serves the needs of our communities.

It means accepting that our values and efforts are not just about our work, but also about our team and our relationships. We deeply value relationships, approaching each uniquely with humility, empathy, and authenticity. Through open collaboration, we approach each project with fresh eyes, committed to listening and fully understanding our clients’ needs. Our aim is to be indispensable to our clients and community.

Growth is a shared responsibility.

Leadership at WBA is founded on the notions of individual ownership and shared responsibility. This means opportunity for leadership exists in every project, on every team and at every level of our practice and that anyone who sees the opportunities can be a part of the solution. It means that each member of our team can contribute their strengths to the collective effort, practice, and success of the firm.
