Our History: Since 1893

DWA Architects has a long history in WA. The practice was established in 1893 by EH Summerhayes and passed down through three generations, to become Darryl Way & Associates in 1991. We now operate as DWA Architects Pty Ltd.

Our director, Mark Langdon, has broad experience across educational, civic, residential, commerical and aged-care architecture. The projects we have undertaken in the last 30 years demonstrate a variety of architectural solutions, consistently pushing for innovative, creative and cost effective design outcomes.

With our experience and broad portfolio, we have the expertise to turn your creative vision into a built reality.



Design excellence is central to our practice, delivering innovative designs on time and on budget.



We have broad architectural experience in Western Australia, working on education, justice, commercial and civic projects across the State.



Client and stakeholder involvement occurs throughout our design and decision-making process, over the course of the entire project.



We bring to each project a commitment to personalised service by the director, one of many  aspects that sets DWA Architects apart.
