WE BELIEVE ARCHITECTURE SHOULD SERVE ITS COMMUNITY
Weddermann Architecture, PLLC, began in 2010 with a desire to create architecture for people, not profits — for our community, not awards.
Over the years Weddermann Architecture has grown — but our foundation hasn't shifted. Our mission remains deeply rooted in the belief that architecture should serve its community.
Great design should be pursued in an effort to help people, not to be featured in a glossy magazine spread. Our proudest moments are when completed projects positively impact our community: we are proudest of projects like community centers, teen shelters, artwork for domestic violence shelters and church parish halls.
A TIGHT & TALENTED TEAM
Weddermann Architecture is a certified woman-owned firm with a team of seven. The Weddermann team includes licensed architects and interior designers.
As a collective we have a strong passion for community and would love to help you realize your project.
PRINCIPLES OF STEEL:
STRENGTH & FLEXIBILITY
Founder Jennifer Weddermann discovered metal art by way of necessity, resiliency, and resourcefulness — three driving forces Jennifer has always embodied. When Jennifer was in graduate school she took a furniture design course. The standard material of choice, lumber, was well out of her limited budget so she headed to the junkyard and gathered up steel remnants to complete and ace her project.
Working with metal strengthened Jennifer's creativity and innovative approach to architecture that would establish her as a visionary in the field. To this day, Jennifer incorporates metal art in her projects turning ordinary and utilitarian architecture into something extraordinary.
In 2015 Jennifer was asked to fabricate a panel of the ornate metal art grilles she designed for the YWCA Pierce County domestic violence shelter for an exhibit entitled By the People: Designing a Better America, which showcased the best healing environments in the country.
The Y’s remodel of an existing apartment building into domestic violence survivor housing was nationally recognized for its success in exemplifying the concept that “beauty is important,” and a comfortable beautiful home furthers healing. The exhibit traveled the country, from the Cooper Hewitt in New York City, ending in the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.
