Powerful...Personal...Finely Detailed Design

And a Midwestern Approach to Client Service

Wade Weissmann Architecture (WWA) is a nationally recognized, full-service boutique architecture firm with projects spanning the U.S. and abroad.  From small-scale renovations to master planning estates and residential enclaves, we draw inspiration from environments that have endured time, in order that we might create classics, refreshed to reflect today’s modern lifestyle.


Founded in 1996, our mission is fourfold:

           •   to create custom, timeless architecture 

           •   to cultivate professional integrity at every turn

           •   to both encourage and provide opportunities for creative collaboration, both inside and outside our four walls

           •   to foster lifelong relationships


With offices in Milwaukee, Santa Barbara, Nashville and Chicago, our team is comprised of nearly forty artisans and staff members who continually strive to create architecture that will enhance not only the lifestyles of our clients, but also the built landscape of communities we touch.
