Office of Architecture (OA) was established in 2012 on the premise that great spaces require the artful orchestration of vision and logistics; that ingenuity can emerge from the limits set by the hard realities of a problem; and that imagination need not belie common sense. OA engages each project with the design sensibility to envision the big idea and the professional savvy to realize its potential.
