Quality, experience, and reputation mean everything to us. For more than 30 years, we’ve been designing buildings for friends and neighbors in Fairhope, Alabama, and across the Gulf Coast region. We are emotionally invested in the success of our projects because we believe that our job as architects is to provide peace of mind to our clients.

As Fairhope’s most established architectural firm, we enjoy touring visitors downtown and pointing out that, over the years, WAV has worked on nearly every building in the commercial district. Fairhope’s charm and values are manifested in our design and community-minded culture. In early 2019, WAV expanded our footprint with the opening of our Gulf Studio in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

Whether designing a coastal home, a church, or a corporate headquarters, WAV’s value lies in a unique combination of empathy and talent. This means we’ll address your concerns immediately, reduce hassles through excellent communication, and always come prepared. It also means that we respect what you find beautiful and deliver architecture in service to that goal.

With more than three decades of design experience and the talent of 16 dedicated team members, we look forward to what’s ahead. The best is yet to come.

What Our Clients Are Saying

“It felt like everyone in the firm was invested in how our house turned out. Lea is a genius at looking at the before and sketching out the after. He just sees it.”

“One of the best things about WAV is their listening ability. They don’t push their ideas on you, they listen to what you like and need and then present ways for you to get to that goal.”

- Dr. John Dindo, Dauphin Island Sea Lab
