At WER, many things go into our makeup

We believe that quality architecture creates better places. Better places to learn, better places to live, better places to heal, better places to work. We believe that the world is a better place with beauty, and that architecture enriches lives. As architects and interior designers, we believe all projects should be beautiful, purposeful, efficient, durable, belong to their surroundings and elevate the human spirit. It is what we live for. Every day.


Combining form and function 


Since its founding in 1978, WER Architects/Planners has been noted for its tradition of architectural excellence and for its commitment to academic and scientific institutions, corporate and cultural institutions, as well as its celebrated achievements in historic preservation. As one of the state’s larger firms, WER’s size and organization allows it to continue a commitment to creating projects that consider the needs of the individual, combining form and function, to create powerful architecture.

WER has been recognized for refined structures that reinforce the firm’s architectural ideal – timeless, honest architecture well-suited to its context. Projects reflect the principals’ beliefs that sound architecture is a collaborative effort that involves extensive research, rigorous study and thoughtful crafting that ultimately creates environments that are technically and culturally significant while also being sensitive to their surroundings.

encouraging creativity and exchange


With offices in downtown Little Rock and Northwest Arkansas, WER Architects’ studio is an open-office environment conducive to a collaborative design approach by talented architects and interior designers. The WER Architects studio encourages creativity and the exchange of ideas seeking a balance between commodity, sustainability, value and aesthetics.

We are constantly searching for ways to bring new ideas, solutions and success to our clients. This commitment can be seen in the results we deliver.
