Design that is crafted for the human experience

We are in relentless pursuit of the unique opportunity to create great experiences through design. We are a collective of thinkers that embody an entrepreneurial spirit consistently exploring new solutions. We see the world differently. Not for what it is, but for what it could be. We are seekers, striving to create better places, buildings and experiences. Our work is connected, transformative and memorable. It is organic and nimble, leaning into the future and anticipating change.


Our work is more than buildings, more than background noise in a busy city. We lay the foundation for human interactions. We create experiences. We knit together street grids, we form buildings, we mold the spaces in between. We craft the world around us.

We listen first,
then we draw

 

In order to be successful architects, we must be excellent listeners. Our job is to fuse together what our client needs with what we know they can have. But we must be tuned in to their desires, their expectations, their standards – and then deliver beyond each of those. Our culture of empowering each of our team members to be leaders who create exceptional designs, combined with our amazing clients' visions, has led us to be recognized for our design excellence.

 

Sustainable Design

 

At OMNIPLAN, sustainability is so much more than a certificate. We take a holistic approach to sustainability on every project we design because we understand that healthy projects are more than just acquiring LEED certification. Community connectivity, natural lighting, being an asset rather than an irritant to the neighborhood and so much more goes into the success of a project. For this reason, we encourage all of our designers to earn WELL certification in addition to LEED. WELL goes beyond the environmental impact of projects and also focuses on the health and human experience of design. By striving for WELL and LEED certification, OMNIPLAN seeks to have a positive impact on the world around us that will extend long after the initial design but will improve the environment future users will enjoy as well.

We strive to maximize environmental performance for every project we design. Whether that’s utilizing local and recycled materials, achieving carbon neutrality, designing Net Zero buildings, energy reduction technologies – we are always excited for the opportunity to go even further.

Our projects have stood the test of time and have elegantly endured the ever-changing landscape of our built environment.
