studioWTA sees architecture as a process of collaboration. Each project is naturally a collaborative effort among the architects in our studio, but the partnerships we develop with our clients are equally important. Architecture, for us, is an active process of communication between all parties involved. Our clients are proud of the buildings we develop, and they should be proud—it is their work too.
StudioWTA also considers our work to be in collaboration with the surrounding context and landscape. Each project starts with research into the physical site, taking into account the community and legal limitations as well as environmental issues. Our approach requires analysis, collaboration, and mutual decisions.
StudioWTA maintains a commitment to contemporary design and is attuned to innovative green building strategies and to concerns about historical conservation.
Deeply invested in our iconic city of New Orleans, we have close ties to the State of Louisiana and love working within its rich history. We establish dialogues with the past that are combined with a vision for the contemporary; this philosophy translates to work in other regions where we also seek to integrate and honor local cultures.
Nationally recognized for urban excellence, studioWTA maintains a commitment to contemporary design and is attuned to innovative green building strategies and to concerns about historic preservation. We work closely with our clients to help secure financing through federal incentive programs including tax credits, grants, and other funding opportunities. Conscientiousness about our client’s budget is vital to our design process and challenges us to explore creative design solutions in our work.
