Sculpture, Form, Art, Culture, Invention, these are some words that may come to mind when discussing architecture. WFC’s purpose as Architects is to strike the right balance of these and other intrinsic elements of design. While developing a clear understanding of the goals and objectives of our clients we are thoughtfully considering the opportunities we have to solve a problem, to create and even inspire.

What do you feel when you enter a space? Does it provoke or inspire you? Is the space alive with natural light, and do the rich colors and textures awaken your senses? With a vast and diverse portfolio of award winning projects, we provide clients with a broad spectrum of interior design solutions ranging from sleek modern retail spaces; to elegant historic restorations, from developing detailed book-matched millwork in corporate offices; to custom designed furniture and lighting fixtures, or even integrating cutting edge technology into our finishes. The interiors we create for our clients help them reach their target audience in a way that is appropriate, appealing, timeless and fresh.
At WFC, the culmination of our designs into a finished physical form is a collaborative process that begins with the first imagined concept. From there it often is developed and refined as a 3D model where we study the visual and spatial effects. Material, finish and lighting selections are then walked through a careful process of research, testing and evaluation by expert designers who are continually striving to place WFC at the forefront of emerging trends and the latest technologies.Next
The green building movement has taken a front seat in the construction industry and WFC is committed to implementing sustainable design strategies in every design we undertake. We seek to prioritize environmental responsibility in all facets of building design and construction, including operations and maintenance. Our goal is to minimize the environmental impact of buildings while maximizing occupant productivity, comfort, and life cycle cost savings. All of the designs by our team take into account some measure of sustainable design and many opportunities exist for deeper implementation of specific strategies to help to reduce the impact we have on the environment. We feel that responsible design doesn’t always have to come at such a premium that prevents it from happening. Our People have a desire to deliver the best and their inspiration and innovation often creates new paths to desired outcomes.Next
One of our best attributes lies in our ability to communicate effectively, whether it’s being able to listen to the needs , program requirements or subtle inferences of our clients or to communicate our own strategic ideas, concepts and solutions. We don’t have to purpose ourselves or be prompted to think “Big” or “Outside the Box” this is what we do consistently, daily. We strive for complete, tailored solutions that culminate in environments which are functionally sound, aesthetically pleasing, and cost-effective to operate and maintain. WFC has been assisting our clients with coordinating the large/small scale relocation of personnel and equipment within major facilities for over 30 years. We come prepared, with a track record of success, experience and understanding when it comes time to plan the reorganization of spaces, buildings and personnel. Proven expertise, whether reacting to a National Emergency like 911 or to a routine planned expansion, WFC is prepared to respond immediately.Next
WFC has long been a “go to” resource for many of our larger clients when they needed a trusted resource to manage and deploy specific grouped tasks or Programs. These have taken on many forms including small scale localized deployments of people or equipment to larger scale geographic implementations which may include managing other partner resources and professionals. We have enjoyed great success because of the inherent value of having a partner like WFC who has invested in our clients, understanding their business, its operations and its people. We have proven ourselves to be an “all-in” Team player with diversified experience in managing multi faceted elements. Because of our flexibility and organizational makeup we custom tailor our approach specifically to each undertaking, that same nimbleness allows us to change direction readily, easily overcoming project challenges and guaranteeing successful implementations.Back to top
