WCRA is comprised of a great group of people who love architecture and who delight in incorporating the layers of context, planning, design, and materials that create places their clients love. Collectively, their responses to design come directly from an empathetic relationship to the client, listening and remaining in contact through the process. 

Warren Ralston says of his studio members, “Each person here has an innate sensibility for seeing the world perhaps in a different way, which connects us as a group. We are equally personable and have great rapport with our clients and each other. The process of building a home is deeply personal — and emotional. Together we endeavor to make it as comfortable for our clients as we can. It is exciting to be able to enrich peoples lives and we are enriched in return.”

The Process.

Clients can expect a balance of professionalism, commitment, and enthusiasm throughout the process of creating warmly refined, contemporary residences. Advanced technologies are grounded and informed by skilled hand drawing, and both are utilized to demonstrate ideas for complete understanding of space and utility, structure and light.
