About this pro

We don’t push specific ideologies on our clients.  Instead we carefully listen to what they want and together, in a collaborative approach, design solutions to their needs, wants, and desires.

Clients refer to the owners of Welch Design Studio, Marc and Lisa Welch as 'The Dynamic Duo'.  They work incredibly well together.  "The two of them bring so much more to the table than in a typical design firm."

If you are looking for a creative solution, something unique, something that touches your heart, then WDS is definitely worth meeting with.

Helping our clients achieve their dreams is extremely rewarding.  Every project, no matter the size has its unique challenges.  It’s these challenges that requires creativity and the creative process uplifts the soul.

A great architect once said: "Why go on vacation when you can design buildings?"

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

We have an initial meeting where we discuss, in detail, what the client is looking for and what they are expecting from their architect.  We have a detailed questionnaire that many clients find very helpful.  From there we typically have enough information to provide a proposal and move to the next step.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Both Marc and Lisa Welch have professional architectural degrees.

Marc Welch has his degree from Cornell University

Lisa Welch has her degree from Univ. of Michigan

Both universities are continuously ranked among the best architecture schools in the country.


What types of customers have you worked with?

Our careers have enabled us to travel throughout the world.  From Europe, Asia, Africa, and our home town, we have worked with incredible clients from all walks of life.   


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Many times architecture firms have a 'front man'.  Someone who sells the clinet on the project.  That front man, then rarely to be seen and is off trying to sell the next client.  The client thinking the front man is designing their project, doesn't know that their project is really being handled by junior staff members and the front man is basically out of the picture. 

So, when interviewing your architect, find out who really will be designing your project and who will your interaction be with. 


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Most clients need to go through a learning process to first understand what an architect does and how they work.  We can easily ease this process and simply explain how the proecss works.  A key bit of information that is alway helpful to know is the client's budget.  It's important to discuss your budget openly with your architect.  It's similar to discussing your budget with a realtor.  The realtor always has a good idea of their client's budget.  The same should be true for your architect.
