About Weaver Buildings

Founded in 2014, Weaver Buildings is an architecture and development company that practices in Austin, Texas and Los Angeles, California.

Our strategy is based on this principle: it takes a team to make a building. We emphasize an interdisciplinary design process; that is, drawing with specialty consultants from the conversation’s origin. When working with contractors and craftsmen, we practice two-way team communication for a correct, timely and cost-efficient execution of the design. The endurance of team communication, from client to consultant and finally to contractor in the field is the key to a thoughtful and seamless solution. We value laughter and empathy in communication for the expression of vivacious and positive environments.
