For WDM, stewardship means being proactive in our everyday lives to ensure the well-being of people and wildlife on our planet. We strive to be good stewards by practicing environmental conservation, sustainable design practices, and community involvement.
This is what grounds us. This is what inspires us.


We can't help it. It's encoded in our DNA. As designers of habitats for both animals and humans, we've made it our practice to design with the planet's future in mind. We like to say, "Sustainable design practices equal good business practices." It's that simple. Here's how:
  • We Use Borrowed Landscaping Techniques to Enhance Design
  • WDM Only Prints on Recycled Paper
  • WDM Uses Rainwater Harvesting to Irrigate Landscapes
  • Rammed Earth is a Technique Used to Build Walls Using Raw Materials
  • Rammed Earth is Becoming More Popular as a Sustainable Option

As architects of space and structure, we seek to design places that coexist naturally with the surrounding environment.

Even in our everyday lives, we embrace proactive measures to recycle and conserve our limited resources. Here's how:

Community Involvement

WDM Architects strives to support our staff and how they can positively shape our community, either as an individual, or through our firm. Much like our focus on environmental stewardship in our design solutions, we strive to support our community’s needs through social, charitable and educational works. We’ve been dedicated to our community for over 30 years and hope our example inspires others to give whatever they can back to the places we call home and the people we call neighbors.

We Proudly Support:
