Wade has impeccable taste and is a joy to work with. He brought creative ideas to the table, while also working collaboratively to find creative solutions to satisfy the needs of three opinionated adults in our multi-generational family! He helped us with an ADU project requiring a lot of back and forth with the City of Berkeley, for which he deftly handled the (sometimes infuriating) bureaucracy with skill and grace. Wade is an ‘old school’ architect — he draws and designs by hand — often in real time during discussions, which can be a fun and inspiring process. (He converts the designs ultimately to CAD for permitting and construction.) Our project required adherence to green design principles, and Wade was excited and totally on board with incorporating them into the design, while also respecting the historic nature of our 1920s bungalow. If you’re looking for a real architect, who understands proportion, scale, and fine details and can skillfully move your project through the labyrinth of permitting – trust your job to Wade.
