MWA Architects

Working side-by-side with our neighbors to tell the story of their awe-inspiring body of work.

MWA Architects was founded in 1988 with a sturdy foundation of diversity and commitment to environment. From housing to civic infrastructure, they create environments that not only strengthen communities, but also consider the health and well-being of the planet.

As one might imagine, MWA has a well-earned reputation for imagining beauty where others might provide utility alone. We crafted an online platform for telling the rich stories of the well thought-out spaces they bring to life.

Since architecture projects can span years, our goal was to create a site that would be straightforward enough to update that they would have the momentum to showcase their work both in progress and when finished.

Flexible portfolio pages allow MWA to craft the narrative of their projects, each unfolding like an immersive article in a modern architecture magazine.

A great deal of what makes MWA a distinctly different kind of firm is their cultural and geographical diversity. We captured the spirit of the team through team photography and video here in Portland and created a style standard for their teams in Oakland and San Francisco.
