Our focus is to find a ‘Common Ground’ - designing spaces where individuals from diverse backgrounds come together to exchange ideas and share experiences.

Design Philosophy

Over the last four decades, William Rawn Associates has curated a practice of listening first. It is our professional responsibility to engage the communities we serve by fostering public dialogue that informs our understanding of a building’s context, civic landscape, and social and environmental needs. Through active listening and building consensus, we pursue a contemporary vocabulary that links our designs inextricably to their settings—creating timeless, beautiful, and warm places that promote interaction, cultural accessibility, and diversity.

Our Process

We believe first and foremost in getting to know you – understanding what is most important to a client and project. Our process institutionalizes active listening, ensuring we are really understanding you as we design. Our interactive sessions facilitate consensus-building and true collaboration in order to ensure that project goals are aligned to design ideas.

Central to this process is our use of physical models. We use these models as tools rather than something pretty under glass. Our models are interactive, allowing participants to test ideas with us. Collaborators can often understand models better than drawings, thus enabling shared understanding and consensus on key decisions. This process provides much greater certainty that everyone is on the same page.

Moving Beyond Inclusion to Belonging

Rawn Equity, Diversity, + Inclusion (REDI)

At William Rawn Associates, Architects it is our professional responsibility to create safe and healthy environments; it is our moral duty to contribute to the national movement to design inclusive, welcoming, and accessible spaces where all people can share common ground.

We charge ourselves and our peers to actively fight against racism, discrimination, hate, and bias in our workplace and in our communities.

We commit to move beyond words into tangible actions. Our long-term goals and initiatives on mentorship, volunteerism, and internal education can be found in the link below and on the Insights Social Justice page. 

Learn more about our social justice initiatives.

Sustainability

William Rawn Associates has a history of progressive action in sustainable design, from being one of the first signatories of the AIA’s 2030 Challenge, to requiring that 100% of design staff maintain LEED Accreditation, we have been at the forefront of the effort to halt climate change and the depletion of natural resources.

We take a holistic approach to sustainable design, recognizing that it is only successful when seamlessly interwoven into the big ideas of a project. William Rawn Associates has repeatedly been recognized by our peers for our leadership in sustainable design, and we have plans to continue our vision of carbon negativity into the future, where efforts in reducing the built environment’s emissions are at their most consequential.
