Passion And Intention Combine To Make Great Forms

Historic Preservation & Restoration

Our work reflects our beliefs that successful architecture is a collaborative effort involving extensive research and thoughtful crafting, ultimately creating environments that are technically and culturally significant.

“WER was critical in making this project work. Their expertise with historic renovations was obvious. The group working on the plans not only knew where the potential pitfalls of this type of work were, they knew how to preserve the character of this wonderful building while bringing it up not just to code, but to a level of functionality that I would not have imagined possible.”
