Unbuilt Work

These projects are too great not to show off.


Leah and her crew are very knowledgeable and helpful. We have a major renovation going and they continue to assist with changes and questions as they arise. I would recommend them to anyone who asks.

We selected Leah to design our house after a lengthy research. We were inspired by the creativity and design of her local projects. Leah brought our dreams and ideas to reality.
She was most professional, respectful and responsive. We collaborated and researched multiple materials and finishes. We had multiple revisions due to contractor, code and insurance issues. She was instrumental in finding a new contractor and was most sensitive to cost considerations.
We love what Leah and her team did for us and highly recommend their services.

Leah and her team are creative and professional. They understood the concept of our vision and incorporated the needs of our family into the layout and function of our home. Additionally, they were completely accessible through the design and construction process.

Leah and her team have been fabulous to work with from the very beginning. Leah has an excellent balance of an artist’s creativity and an engineer’s practicality. Leah is an excellent listener. She transformed my haphazard ideas into a cottage design that I absolutely love. I did not think anyone would be able to incorporate all of my ‘must haves’ into a single design; Leah did. I am living in Dallas, while building in Pass Christian. She has been very flexible with scheduling meetings and is always quick to respond to my thoughts and questions. I highly recommend working with Leah and the Watters team!

Leah and her team are excellent at putting together the wants, but also keeping the needs in the center of the design. They listen extremely well, and they take pride in what they are doing. It’s hard to find someone who is going to value what you want as much as you do. Leah and her team have figured that out. They pay attention to the details… Not just of the parts they are required to, but to the small things that tend to matter to the customer. They are creative, thoughtful, and provide excellent vision during the design process.

Since an out-of-state architect designed our new house, we engaged Leah and her team to provide construction oversight to insure that the house was built to plan specifications. They conducted regular inspections and provided written reports with photos. We also turned to them for various technical and aesthetic advice during the build. They were great to work with, providing valuable input on a timely basis at every step during construction up to and including the final walkthrough inspection.

I learned of Watters Architecture through a friend and discussed a proposed project. During these discussions it became clear that Leah and her team are very creative. Countless ideas and concepts began to flow and be exchanged. In addition, one of their strengths was that they asked solid questions and listened, that’s right, they listened! As a direct result, we optimized the time and process to work the details and format the design for the intended purpose.

I have been very pleased and would look to work with them on any future projects.

This is our second time building a home and we knew this go around we wanted to be a lot more intentional as we went through this process. We could not have picked a better partner to help us journey through this endeavor of building our dream home. Leah and her team at Watters Architecture, took what was a collection of different ideas and hopes in our head and masterfully made them come to life not just on paper but also the screen. The ability to walk through our house 3D made a huge difference as we made important decisions. Throughout the process we could feel the care and passion they had for our project as they wanted it to be as perfect as we did. Their attention to detail and practicality made all the difference. For us, this did not just stop with a set of plans, we had partners to walk with us through every phase of construction all the way to the punch list and final completion. We could not be happier with our experience working with Watters Architecture and would highly recommend their expertise for your next project!

The perfect combination of professional and personal. Watters Architecture cares as much about the the person as the pantry. I have used Leah and her growing staff for the last 8 years on projects ranging from light commercial, residential, and the use of existing space. Watters Architecture is a great choice for your design and architecture needs.
