Established in 1997
Webber + Studio was founded with the goal of producing regional, functional, expressive and minimal architecture and interiors. We strive to create innovative buildings and spaces that formally and spatially interconnect site and structure. Our work includes diverse projects ranging from mixed-used commercial to custom residences.
Our Core Values
With a deep interest in the honest expression of site constraints and program as well as a emphasis on creating abiding and sustainable work, the Studio’s designs reveal new forms and gestures. With a highly-committed focus on problem solving in their designs, Webber often embraces and elevates unfamiliar and unconventional configurations, proportions and details.
David Webber moves beyond the Palladian or rationalist box and expresses instead the frequently unorthodox results of program meeting site. Problem solving begets the opportunity to redefine beauty which he will manifest in unwieldy footprints, unconventional solutions, or unexpected details and materials. His work overtly expresses the oddities that functionalism may require or suggest. This sometimes creates buildings that are in seamless unison with their site; other times ostensibly in stark contrast to it.
Inherently connected to a site’s micro and macro region, including not only its culture and character, but its geography and climate, Webber + Studio aligns the use of local materials, methods, building vernacular and sustainable building technology to create designs that re-examine what “local” architecture can be.
The Studio’s buildings intend to recede in order for the functional, expressive and regional values to stand at the center of view and on their own merits. The reductive quality of his materials and details palettes, therefore allow his spaces to exist as frequently quiet, but sometimes engaging backdrops that emphasize the activities, uses and places that formed them.
Consistent Process, Unique Outcomes
We strive to create innovative buildings and spaces that formally and spatially interconnect site and structure. Less concerned with style as much as function and context, we treat each project as an exploration in marrying our client’s objectives with the characteristics of their program and site to achieve the uniqueness that is the hallmark of our work. We approach projects of varying type, scale and use with a consistent, rigorous process so that we may always bring the highest level of quality and value to each of our endeavors.
