Meet the Architects

  • WeddleGilmore black rock studio

    We believe that it is through the study of specific site conditions and patterns that one discovers an appropriate and meaningful design. We are committed to designing projects that identify, clarify, and reveal an overall sense of place; whether that place be the complex - yet seemingly austere - Sonoran desert, or the collage of the past and present in the reflecting glass of Europe’s haute couture storefronts. With projects completed both domestically and abroad, Black Rock Studio has been recognized for design excellence across a range of private and public design projects that have positively contributed to the client’s bottom line, and enhanced the public good.


    Our team is not one to force design upon a user, rather we take time to listen and understand what is needed. We strive to provide a unique architectural response for every project that exceeds expectations. We value education and realize the importance our environments have in fostering a creative spirit. Having experience across numerous types of educational projects from campuses supporting Pre-K to Grade 6, Secondary and Higher Education, to the educational, interpretive, and community centers we have been privileged to work on, each project has provided us an opportunity to learn and grow as designers who recognize the effects our projects can have on a community.
