At Watershed, we understand that true sustainability is only theoretical (i.e. it is not actually achievable) in a world where population growth continues unabated within a growth-based economic system dependent on relentless extraction of finite natural resources. Nonetheless, we continue to practice holistic ecology-based design, striving for the most effective and beneficial engagement of human and natural systems toward creating memorable places defined by intelligent, durable, bioclimatic, healthful and culturally-responsive architecture.
Based in Richmond, Virginia, Watershed offers a comprehensive range of integrated design services including architecture, master planning/landscape design and construction. Our practice is regionally-focused but we have also consulted on and are involved with international projects in Central America, West Africa and Haiti and our expertise covers residential, cultural, small-scale institutional and light commercial design.
