AWH Process

AWH Architects is driven by curiosity and commitment. We navigate the world with a passion for creative exploration and recognize the need to preserve the integrity of the existing environment, both built and natural. Our ideas are nourished by the diversity of our experiences outside of the studio, but our best ideas evolve with collaboration. Unlike larger architecture firms, the AWH team clients meet are the same people who take the care to visit the site, form the design concepts, produce the drawings and move the project forward. Our process is streamlined and tailored to each individual project. The scale of our firm allows us to be flexible in approach and accessible to clients. At AWH we hope to work with people who are forward thinkers that empower us to discover creative solutions that go beyond the standard designs big architecture firms deliver.

Focused on delivering client specific design solutions, AWH Architects utilizes a collaborative, inclusive and iterative design process. The process includes direct communication and involvement with all the constituents of a project including community involvement when appropriate.

Our philosophy is to first listen then guide the project to a successful design solution.
