Founded in 2014, Weaver Buildings is an architecture and development company that practices in Austin, Texas and Los Angeles, California. By designing with sustainability, construction costs and market disposition in mind, Weaver Buildings realizes healthy environments and optimized returns.
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, with investors, clients, consultants, contractors, brokers and appraisers is the key to a thoughtful and seamless solution. We value laughter and empathy in communication for the expression of vivacious and positive environments.
Weaver Buildings has successfully consulted for private clients on the conversion of 130+ condominiums. As well, they designed, developed and acted as GC for several condominiums as Accessory Dwelling Units.
