Our firm was founded in 2001, when architect Dan Wigodsky established Wigodsky & Associates Architects, LLC with the goal to make people’s lives better through concentrated design.  In 2018, the firm name was updated to Wigodsky & Derrick Architects to reflect the contributions by architect Danny Derrick.  In 2020, Dan Wigodsky retired and the firm continued under the leadership of Danny Derrick and the updated firm name, Derrick Architects, LLC.
The firm’s established principles are:

• Extensive client involvement for frequent input and decision-making.
• Design that is complete, clear, and delighting.
• Efficiency of materials and methods.
Our portfolio includes an unusually broad variety of project types and appearances, reflecting the intensely personal expression of each of our demanding clients. At the same time, this diversity is supported by a consistent process that has created successful buildings.
