DESIGN VISION

The Process

This book is the culmination of a five year effort to articulate the many loose threads that are woven together in the realization of WDA’s work. The aim was to distill and clarify William Duff and WDA’s Design Vision and disseminate it as a design tool.

We first brainstormed the words that define our 20+ years of design output in terms of atmosphere, aesthetic and philosophy. We looked at the relationships between those words and established four overarching strands to which each thread might be tied. Each word was very deliberately selected and given a definition within the broader context of its place within WDA’s Design Vision.

We then developed a distinctive icon which represents each idea as intrinsic elements of a complete design solution. The four colors represent each overarching strand of thought, with each concentric layer providing substance in the articulation of WDA’s Design Vision.

The Design Tool

This document should be used as a working design tool, no different to sketch paper or a scale, with which the WDA Team formulates design solutions to the problems posed in any aspect of our work.

Though the design process is, naturally, particular to each person, this resource should serve as guidebook with which our designs as a collective are curated and so facilitate the expression of each individual’s creativity within a cohesive Design Vision.

GUIDING THE DESIGN

The big move is a assertive gesture, prominent object or organizing principle that guides the entire design.

Whether it is obvious or subtle it should become apparent when you see it and permeate the design with boldness and confidence.

The big move in this wine cave entrance is, in a sense, the design itself; a prominent cube nestled into the hillside highlighting the point at which one enters the cave.

Both of these projects show a dominant big move. The swooping curves of the millwork kiosks and the orthogonal wood spine both affirm a navigation point for each design scheme.

The arrangement of compositional building elements form a frame which celebrates the work of the artist and culture of this family-owned business.

ART AND STORYTELLING

Great buildings, just like great paintings or sculptures, are carefully and artfully composed.

The composition is like a story told with craft and refinement which, in its narrative, is driven primarily by the interplay between design elements.

ORDERING PRINCIPLES 015 COMPOSITION 3 4

SPATIAL PROPORTION

Well composed spaces need not be complicated nor overly simplistic.

Space, across the spectrum of complexity, should use a blend of colors, materials and textures to conscientiously define its proportions.

The organic lines of the marble island anchor the composition of this kitchen and counter-balance the orthogonal lines of the architecture.

017 ORDERING PRINCIPLES COMPOSITION 6

The interplay of shapes and forms begins at the storefront of this building and continues through the space creating interesting compositions from every angle.

CELEBRATION OF THE OBJECT

verb | cel·e·brat-ion | \ ˈse-lə-ˌ-shən\ noun | ob·ject | \ ˈäb-jikt , -(ˌ)jekt \

“The accentuation of an architectural element within the design.”

1 GOLDEN OAK RESIDENCE | PORTOLA VALLEY, CA

When space and layout constraints forced a bathroom shower to protrude into the bedroom, the solution was to celebrate the object. The wood cladding gives it a sculptural quality which anchors and enhances the room design.

022 2

ANCHORED ENERGY

A space or a building can be made special when its anchored by an object, particularly one that gives energy to the design.

The power of such an object is enhanced when a design celebrates it in the overall composition.

023 ORDERING PRINCIPLES CELEBRATION OF THE OBJECT 2 2

CONTEXTUAL SYMBIOSIS

The celebrated object has a symbiosis with the space it occupies.

The design is about both the object and its context; one strengthens the other, and if one were removed the other would be weakened.

024 3

This minimalist room is transformed through the addition of an elegantly detailed fixture and its associated merchandise. Its well-considered placement communicates a sense of dynamism, refinement and sophistication to the space.

025 ORDERING PRINCIPLES CELEBRATION OF THE OBJECT 4

The celebrated object can anchor a space and draw people into it. The orange feature at the back of this store draws the eye to it which in turn draws the shopper inside.

PROPORTION

noun | pro·por·tion | \prə-ˈpȯr-shən\

“The harmonious relation of individual parts to each other and to the whole.”

The design moves in this composition, which may initially appear random, were deliberately executed and refined to achieve a natural sense of balance and proportion.

030 1

ART AND MATHEMATICS

Proportion is about the visual harmony that is formed by the relationship between the size, scale and placement of design objects.

In architecture those relationships and connections are guided, in similar measures, by the principles of mathematics and art.

031 ORDERING PRINCIPLES PROPORTION 2 3

The judicious positioning of elements in this retail design articulates a well-proportioned space and conveys a sense of elegance in the brand.

“An

035 BALANCE ORDERING PRINCIPLES noun | bal·ance | \ˈba-lən(t)s\
aesthetically pleasing arrangement of elements, to achieve a state of equilibrium or harmony.” 1 A MANO | SAN FRANCISCO, CA WDA O’FARRELL STREET | SAN FRANCISCO, CA WDA MISSION STREET | SAN FRANCISCO, CA SPLIT BREAD MISSION STREET | SAN FRANCISCO, CA SPLIT BREAD METREON | SAN FRANCISCO, CA VALLEJO STREET RESIDENCE | SAN FRANCISCO, CA MIXT GREENS YERBA BUENA LANE | SAN FRANCISCO, CA 2 3 4 5 6 7

AESTHETICALLY MEASURED

Balance in a design is the measured interplay of all of the elements so that there is not too much or too little or too many or too few.

It is not a quantitative measure but rather an aesthetic one, and you know it when you see it.

036 2 3

The textured tile floor and use of natural wood fixtures are balanced by the simplicity of the white soffit and black exposed ceiling.

037037 ORDERING PRINCIPLES BALANCE 4

This restaurant space is balanced through a refined selection of complimentary colors, textures and materials.

038 5

ARTICULATING EQUILIBRIUM

Balance can be nebulous in its nature and difficult to define.

It can be the use of complimentary colors, the combination of textures, the sizing and placement of forms or the interplay between solid and void.

ORDERING PRINCIPLES 039 BALANCE 6
040 7

Balance need not be simple. It can be ornate, it can be minimalist, it can be anywhere in between. This space, when fully occupied, could be quite frenzied but it is balanced by a floor, ceiling and millwork that are soothing, calm and visually clean.

FROZEN MUSIC

Rhythm accentuates an architectural design through the dynamism and energy that it can generate, similar to the sense of movement a piece of music can evoke.

It is achieved through the recurrence of elements such as lines, shapes, forms, textures or colors resulting in an organized movement in space and time.

044 2

The recurrence of the wood slats and spherical light fixtures forms a rhythmic pattern that maintains a sense of balance.

045045 ORDERING PRINCIPLES RHYTHM 3

The regularity in the repetition of geometric lines and shapes generate a sense of movement which echoes, but also balances, the energy of the painting.

046 1

ORGANIZED MOVEMENT

Rhythm can be linked to natural cycles such as a heartbeat, the rings of a tree, or the cycle of a season but it is chiefly about bestowing order.

When architectural elements, such as bricks, windows or columns, are placed so that they are experienced with intervals between them, our eyes move from one to the next through a sense of organized movement.

CLEAR EXPRESSION

Design clarity is the expression of an idea or element or a quality in clear and unambiguous terms.

The terms are not literal but instead are visual and realized through material, color, light and space.

050 2

The design intent for this space was to create a soothing, spa-like environment. Conceptual clarity was achieved through the calm, organic color palette & soft indirect light.

APPRECIATION OF DETAIL

The alignment of elements within a design, particularly at a detailed level, can be one of the most pleasing moments to experience in architecture.

Rigorous thought and many iterations are required to produce architecture with flawless alignments but a successful outcome is well worth the reward.

HUMAN INTERACTION

Crafting the experience of architecture is about the articulation of a story within a design and the spatial and cognitive human interactions with that story.

Spaces driven by experience are designed so that there is regular visual stimulation, where elements reveal themselves sequentially or are transformed when perspective shifts.

New projects which naturally feel as though they have always been there are those most marked by timelessness.

Responding to the proportion and scale of the context is key to achieving this design outcome.

Well-composed forms and spaces may be of a certain time and place.

The more proportionally refined and compositionally balanced they are the more timeless they will be.

RESPOND AND ENRICH

How a building or a space responds to its context is a true measure of the “attitude” of the design.

A great project will not only draw inspiration from its context, but will generate an enrichment in everything around it as a consequence.

COMPLIMENTARY INTERVENTION

Context can take many forms; a rural landscape, a city street-scape or the interior of an existing building.

In each there is a moment of inspiration for the project’s design, but there are also opportunities for the architectural intervention to compliment its setting.

The use of natural wood and flood of daylight give this space an generous feeling of warmth.

NATURAL COMFORT

Architectural warmth is the quality of a space or a building that evokes a feeling which is welcoming, comfortable and uplifting.

It typically comprises natural materials which have light colors, warm temperatures and yield no acoustical echo.

175 MATERIALITY WARMTH 3 4

TEXTURE

The texture of a material plays a crucial role in generating a sense of warmth.

Finishes with grain relief and materials with natural surfaces feel much warmer compared to excessively smooth surfaces and artificial materials which can often feel cold.

Panels of wood cladding and judicious lighting combine with the careful proportioning of the design elements to give this restaurant a feeling of warmth.

Timber, brick, steel, wood and carpet are being used with integrity to their functional purpose in this design; the steel, for instance, is a magnetized pinboard on the wall, and not a flooring material.

HONORING MATERIALS

Honesty in design is most evident in the materials.

Materials are harvested or designed for a specific use and should be purposed within a design to honor those intentions, including reused or repurposed materials.

EVOKING THE EPHEMERAL

Design is often an exercise in problem solving, but sensuousness is less tangible and is something which is evoked rather than determined.

Sensuousness in architecture is ephemeral but its essential qualities can be articulated through subtlety, restraint, suggestion, art and a connection to our humanness.

ACCENTUATE WITH TEXTURE

The textural quality of materials is an essential means by which a design move can be emphasized, spaces can be connected, or one element can be differentiated from another.

Texture should be used with thoughtful intent and as an effective way to accentuate a design.

The textured imprint of the board-formed concrete creates a rough and raw counterpoint to the smooth crispness of the steel canopies in this facade, emphasizing the impact of one another on the design.

This retail store uses a full spectrum of textures to accentuate the design moves. They add visual interest and sophistication to the space while not distracting from the featured merchandise.

The interplay of textures in a building or space adds layers of complexity to a design.

It can be subtle or bold, but should serve to reinforce and enhance the broader design concept.

The careful selection of materials and the thoughtful detailing of their connection enhances the overall design.

BUILDING WITH CARE

Craft is at the heart of architecture. What is designed cannot become architecture until it is built, and craft is defined by the care with which it is both designed and built.

Being conscious of craft helps create a connection between the design and a love for the materials and details that work together to make up the overall composition.

Feature elements play a prominent visual role in a design by drawing attention to themselves through their quality and detail.
