As a 100+ person firm with a 40-year track record of success, OPN is one of the largest architectural firms in the Midwest. We’ve won wide recognition for our design work and are listed by Architectural Record in the top 100 Design Firms nationally. We believe 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 in our studios. 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 collaboration are our most important attributes, and we believe these commitments are the reason for our high percentage of repeat clients. We work to create trusting, mutually beneficial relationships on each project simply because we believe it’s the right thing to do.
