People buy based on emotion and justify it with logic.
We all have driven past a community gate or through the front door of a home and it made us pause and say wow. The space and details stir up memories or it is touching in some way. When asked, we cannot always explain why we love it but we know we do. Designing communities that make this emotional connection through human centered design is why WA360 exists.
Over the years I have worked with a variety of design firms and builders of residential communities in the US and China. Too often the designs work and satisfy the functional and logical project needs, such as program and budgets, but never really reach beyond these to an emotional level that motivates buyers. Unique custom designed projects manage to touch us but why not larger scale communities that impact so many more lives? Maybe it is the fast pace of the development process or the need to keep projects moving through a large office. What ever the reason, I was troubled by this missed opportunity and launched WA360 to bring custom level thinking and focus to this important market.
