We use design to leave the world a little better than we found it.
From humble beginnings in a spare bedroom to our 66-person office in North Downtown Omaha, we’ve never lost sight of our deep roots in the communities we serve. Our clients range from visionary developers to world-changing non-profits, and everything in between. Together we strive to build cities and neighborhoods that add to the social fabric.
People, design, and community have always been at the heart of everything we do. We are steadfastly committed to this dedication and to the notion that we are better together.
Put People First
People are at the core of all we do, whether that means caring for our employees and clients, or for the people that will interact with the spaces we design.
We believe in the transformative power of good design. We also believe that good design can and should be for everyone.
Our work aims to lift up communities, making them more beautiful and vibrant, helping them be healthier, and inspiring them to learn and create.
Take a peek at our latest annual report.
Onward and upward.
Architecture is a constant evolution of ideas in response to changing needs and aspirations. We balance love and appreciation of history, with a desire to deliver exceptional work in the present, with an eye toward spaces that are sustainable and last well into the future.
