We are a multi-disciplinary practice creating outstanding people-centric places that care for our heritage. Our research-led approach underpins our design philosophy, meaning our clients know their projects will be based on the latest thinking in the sector.
WWA (West Waddy Archadia) was formed by the merger of two renowned practices and can trace their origins back to 1885. With offices in London and Oxford, our interdisciplinary team offers outstanding client-focused services, embracing the natural crossover between built environment disciplines, and consistently delivers high-quality projects on time and on budget.
WWA offers a range of design and planning services, including Architecture, Planning, and Urban Design with specialists in low-energy design, ecology, heritage, and arboriculture throughout the South East, Midlands and as far north as Manchester and Leeds.
Our team is highly experienced in navigating projects through the complex UK planning system and championing our client’s causes, from multi-acre, mixed-use development sites to smaller and more personal projects. At WWA we offer expert advice, untangle the red tape, decipher any jargon and provide you with a clear and well-laid-out approach.
We work across various sectors, ranging from residential, healthcare, specialist housing and education, from small-scale developments to large mixed-use schemes. Over the years we have collaborated with clients including commercial and private developers, charities and local authorities, associations, schools and universities.
