From Senior Architect and Interior Designer to Principal
WAV Welcomes Abby Davis as New Partner
Walcott Adams Verneuille Architects (WAV) is excited to announce the promotion of Abby Davis to Principal. She’s joining fellow Principals Mac Walcott, Gina Walcott, Clay Adams, Lea Verneuille, and Ryan Baker. Abby has become integral to WAV as a firm leader, successfully expanding our interior design profile, taking on complicated design challenges and mentoring our younger designers. Abby is also a community leader, taking on leadership roles in community organizations and hands-on volunteer work.
Abby is excited to use her new role to continue expanding WAV’s commercial and residential interiors work. She’s looking forward to some exciting commercial and residential projects moving into the construction phase in 2019, as well as several fantastic interior projects currently on the boards and several that will be completed this year.
Focusing on the development of interior architecture alongside the exterior design of a building has always been a passion of hers. Abby enjoys creating interiors that are seamlessly integrated with the overall architecture of the building--spaces that reinforce and enhance the architectural point of view and spirit of the design. She also believes that Interior architecture and design can delight and surprise by bringing something new and unexpected, especially within existing buildings.
In addition to her goals of raising the profile of WAV’s interior architecture services, Abby will continue her efforts in making a positive difference in the community. Whether being an organizational leader or doing hands-on volunteering, she loves the fellowship and connection that being active in her community provides. She’s even introduced her first grader to community service this past fall!
It was not only Abby’s design skills, hard work and passion for interiors that identified her as a WAV firm leader. It was also her commitment to mentoring younger designers. Her advice to potential future firm leaders is to never become complacent; strive to exceed expectations and to progress--technically, aesthetically, and as community leaders. She observes that leaders and experts in their fields are constantly seeking to improve and push boundaries, and it motivates those around them to do the same.
Join us in welcoming Abby Davis as our newest WAV Principal.
