WATG
A LEGACY OF FIRSTS
We are pioneering and collaborative with a profound respect for where we’ve been. We believe that brilliant design comes from a deep understanding of the context and culture we’re creating in, and that our solutions have the power to transform the human experience. At WATG, we’ve been designing landmark destinations for 75 years, shaping timeless spaces and places that span the globe.

Independent from the start and still firmly rooted in hospitality, we are nimble and attuned to the unique needs of multifaceted developments. Our five collaborative studios—Strategy, Planning, Architecture, Landscape, and Wimberly Interiors—stay true to our guiding principles, designing spaces that respect and enhance the natural magic of their surroundings, all while delivering longterm value for our clients.

We have the institutional market knowledge to create long-term value for our clients delivered on budget and on time.
