Our Vision

Through innovation and persistence, DWL strives to further strengthen our presence in communities as inspiring architects and trusted advisors. We aim to promote the holistic wellness of the firm, empower our DWL family to discover their passions and to be preeminent designers for the communities we are honored to serve–all while having fun along the way.

Our Values

Inspirational Design


We blend inspired design and aesthetics with rigorous function, efficiency and contextuality to provide exceptional solutions. We believe that what looks good can work well; and what works well, endures.

Creative Teamwork

We are honored by the trust our clients have placed in us, forming true partnerships that extend beyond individual projects. Our emphasis is on real collaboration where every voice on the team is heard, and the best ideas are implemented.

Thoughtful Stewardship

We are privileged to be stewards of our community, charged with the careful and sustainable use of resources and the opportunity to elevate our environment with impactful design.

Enduring Commitment

We are forward-thinking, building the future on our sound longevity. We have been recognized as one of the nation's most dynamic and respected firms.

Transforming Communities through Impactful Projects

Aviation

Our projects at airports range in size, from municipal-operated general aviation facilities to large commercial and international service airports with a focus on the traveler’s experience. The goal with every aviation project is to create a space unique to its community and highly efficient.

Our expertise in creating spaces for students to learn, live and explore comes from our decades of projects ranging in size and complexity for academic campuses across the country.

Our process of redefining the facilities for healthcare comes from incorporating technology and aesthetics. As the delivery of healthcare is ever-evolving, we have responded with innovative solutions on a wide range of projects.

Our focus on fulfilling the needs of local communities is evident in the projects we take on. Supporting the vision in creating different spaces for the arts, sports, cultures, and municipalities is what drives us.
