JWP Architects was founded by Bernie Jovaras and Doug Westland in 1993 (Jovaras Westland Partnership).  It has evolved over the last decade to foster Leigh Rizzato and John Guthrie as directors in the practice as Doug transitions into a well-deserved retirement. 

The broad range of project types we deliver allows us to be flexible and innovative for our clients.  Our team structure is complementary to this, allowing us to be agile in our staffing levels and skill sets.

We take pride in our ability to establish and maintain close working relationships with many repeat clientele due to our approachability, responsiveness and commitment.

Our most recent client audit revealed that many of our clients believed that we “care too much”, a comment that we wear proudly.

I am fully satisfied with the value – their designs are influenced by locality and their local knowledge is very useful. We also value their local connections to other professionals.
