OPN practices a holistic blend of architecture, planning and design. We have an intentionally diverse list of clients, and we work to provide each with exemplary service. OPN brings together a diverse group of smart, creative designers, thinkers and planners. People at OPN believe in the importance of doing what you love, doing it well, and having fun along the way. OPN is a truly open design studio and we seek diversity in both our people and our projects. We welcome variety for its capacity to inform our work and broaden our understanding of the world.
We’ve won wide recognition for our design work and are listed by Architectural Record as the 114th largest design firm in the nation in 2016. Our success is the result of a deliberate, sustained commitment to an open culture that nurtures excellence and new ideas. We collaborate closely during planning and design phases. We camp out in teaming rooms during intensive periods of research and design. We document our ideas with layers of trace paper, sticky notes, photos and boards, and workshop ideas together during weekly design critiques. We understand that physical space can foster or inhibit collaboration and innovation, and we believe passionately that success lies in bringing people and perspectives together. We encourage open dialogue and, as a team, we find the optimal design solution for our clients. Responsiveness, responsibility, and commitment to open dialogue are our most important attributes, and we believe these commitments are the reason for our high percentage of repeat clients.
