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

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

Gilberto Villalobos

Project Lead

Gilberto holds an M.Arch from the University of Oregon, a B.A. in Humanities from Washington State University, and has studied abroad in Japan and Spain with RCR Arquitectes. Before joining WA, he worked for several offices based in Oregon and Southern California, primarily focused on residential and hospitality design. His fascination with architecture stems from its primordial response to the human necessity of shelter, and how it has evolved into a lens for how we view the site and ourselves.
