Andrew Wanek, ALA
From Arts and Crafts to Mid-Century Modernism, I have a passion for vernacular architecture and am energized by all styles of design. My understanding of our architectural history is the foundation for adapting existing spaces in a way that preserves their integrity yet serves a modern lifestyle. I build upon my knowledge of our architectural past to create contemporary forms that represent today's spirit.
I am a licensed architect and hold a Masters of Architecture degree from UW-Milwaukee and a BA from Ripon College. I am a member of the Association of Licensed Architects and a docent for the Madison Trust for Historic Preservation's architectural tours. I have conducted public seminars on vernacular architecture and have instructed architectural and perspective drawing at Madison College. My work has been published in Madison Magazine, Re-Nest, Fine Homebuilding, and Remodeling Magazine (among others). And, my designs have won numerous awards, including the Chrysalis Award, Qualified Remodeler Master Design Award, and multiple NARI recognitions.
My clients are looking for a fresh and creative approach to their projects. They reject boiler-plate design and appreciate a highly personalized approach, whether their goal is an addition that respects and enhances their existing home, or a new structure with a uniqueness that represents their own personality and style. My clients are typically busy professionals who value my assistance in guiding them through the myriad of choices and decisions. Of course, each client is also different, and their projects are unique. I strive to understand my clients’ individual style to facilitate creative synergy and build an effective team.
