Valerio Dewalt Train Associates

Valerio Dewalt Train is a national architectural and design practice with offices in Chicago, Illinois; San Francisco, California; and Palo Alto, California. Since 1994, the firm has based its practice on the simple idea that whatever the question, design is the answer. But we also believe that before an answer can be provided, one has to do the research to make sure the question is understood.

As designers, we take a research-based approach to the design process; it is immersive and specific. This process allows us to explore the client’s DNA, user profile, research best practices and discover early on what “Green” strategies should be integrated in the project. By integrating sustainable approaches and technology from the project conception, the ideas become intertwined with the design, creating a building that represents and performs as a sustainable facility.

We work with a wide range of clients: institutional, educational, corporate, retail, entertainment, hospitality, and developers, each client benefits from the cross-fertilization of ideas between these industries. The result of our energetic approach is a series of remarkable projects often produced on very tight budgets and schedules for many notable organizations; from eBay, to Adobe, the Kresge Foundation, the University of Chicago, and the University of California San Diego.

Location: Chicago, Illinois; San Francisco, California; and Palo Alto, California
