Founded in 1999, Opsis was conceived as a design-first studio manifesting the creativity and open discourse experienced in design studios at the University of Oregon. The founding partners envisioned setting a standard—regionally and nationally—for design excellence rooted in placemaking and sustainability, realized through an open and participatory design process.
Opsis Architecture’s mission is to advance our client’s vision through inclusive and inspired design, elevating the human experience and nurturing our environment with the enduring art of architecture. We affirm our commitment to diversity, celebrate cultural and intellectual richness, and are unwavering in our advancement of inclusion and equity honoring all people. In pursuit of these goals, we embrace the challenges of sustainability, climate change, and the responsibility to improve our environment. We are a collaborative practice committed to employing and working with a diverse workforce.
Today, Opsis is a thriving, 50-person firm with a diverse practice led by seven partners. Our studio culture embraces the values and activities that coalesce around exploring, giving, and sustaining as a continuum that builds a sense of community within and outside the studio.
