Our studio pursues clarity—transforming complex conditions into spaces of elemental beauty and enduring value.

We work with our clients and partners to solve problems, reveal insights, and create inviting architecture for every place and purpose.

Waechter Architecture is a design studio based in Oregon, USA. We operate from our all-wood, mixed-use, mass timber building on Portland’s historic Mississippi Avenue. With an acclaimed portfolio across all project types, we’re believers in the potential of architecture to build community, elevate experience and awaken the senses.
