People buy based on emotion and justify it with logic.

Based in the USA, WA360 is an international architectural firm which specializes in the design of planned residential and resort living.  Because of this focus, our clients can be confident the design is on target and will add value to their projects.  By specializing, our work is guided by a deeper understanding of residential and resort design, including lifestyle trends, design strategies to improve operations, and the collaboration techniques that help the development team to achieve great results.

For over a decade, our team has focused on the international developer market in Asia.  WA360 has the expertise to cooperate and deliver across great distance and cultural tastes. To assure a smooth process, our President and Chief designer oversees each phase of our projects and personally travels as needed to assure great results. Communication between our clients and designers is critical as a project develops and ideas evolve during the design process.  Live design workshops are an important part of our process where we can communicate directly with the team and accomplish many weeks of work in a short period of time. These workshops improve communication and give the whole team confidence in the design direction. We are as committed as our clients are to a great finished project.

As designers, we are drawn to architecture that has history, character, and soul.  We aim to give each project a strong image and make the experience memorable for both resort visitors and villa owners.  Over the years, our designers have become experts in the architectural character and styles from around the world and much of our work is inspired by the timeless principles in these beautiful examples.   We take these lessons from international design and develop creative solutions for local markets. Marketable designs that are rich with character and soul, but also created for modern lifestyles and trends.

We look forward to sharing how we can help you design your next project.
