Our Philosophy

Strengthening the community by designing collective memory.

Valuable public spaces are at the heart of every society’s cultural identity. These spaces celebrate history and art, provide resources for learning and wellness, and embody good governance.
We help our public clients build healthy communities by designing spaces that simultaneous conserve its history and heritage while developing new expressions for current times.

Civic buildings involve a complex process of resolving sometimes cohesive, sometimes disparate, interests of agencies, politicians, constituents, community organizations, and a host of other concerned parties. Our clients return to Westgroup time and again because of our experience working with each of these interests and because we have built strong relationships based on our reliability and ability to deliver results.
