Over the course of our nearly 40 year history, OPN has grown from a handful of designers practicing in a single studio to more than 110 talented individuals working in four architectural offices in Cedar Rapids, Des Moines, and Iowa City, Iowa, and Madison, Wisconsin. As a comprehensive architectural, landscape, and interior design firm, OPN Architect’s solution-based process and approach is informed by data and rooted in a fundamental belief that detail and rigor inform every design decision. We thrive in challenging situations because our ability to build relationships between people, decisions, and information is central to our success. 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. We work to create trusting, mutually beneficial relationships on each project simply because we believe it’s the right thing to do. We are committed to an open culture that nurtures excellence and new ideas. We encourage open dialogue and, as a team, we find the optimal design solution for our clients.
