We believe that well-designed places can elevate the human experience, triggering reflection, awareness, and action on the part of visitors. The best designs build relationships between ourselves, our communities, and the earth.
At W we create meaningful places where cities and nature come together. The result is places that inspire, uplift, and strengthen communities. Our special expertise is working with urban waterfront sites, where we transform neglected, marginal areas into vital places for people to gather and experience the poetry of life. Our designs unlock potential for positive change and healthier, resilient, more connected communities.
