Design Office

Founded in 2011, Design Office an interdisciplinary practice involved in rigorous data driven design and research that yields innovative, one of a kind solutions. Our unique process…to seemingly complex, conflicting problems. ………Design Office is a team of expert design professionals who are paving a new, more relevant path for the built environment and the leaders who support it. We embrace todays complex and often time contradictory realities of today. As our professions, and the ecosystems they were designed to support evolve, so too has the way we view ourselves in relation to the Built Environment. As a metaphor, one could see design office as a hybrid between a prizim and an abstract machine, both designed to assist with the transformation of inputs, however one produces beautiful yet repeatable outputs. (For a more in-depth understanding of the use of the metaphor of the Prizim and the Abstract Machine, see ….(Blog Post or _____ titled The Problem with the Prizm and the Machine.)

Headquartered in New Orleans, Design Office – DO – is fast becoming an iconic name in architectural, engineering and Building Information Modeling (BIM) services.
DO was formed at the intersection of design, construction, and technology. We have entered into a new epoch where new technologies are transforming the A/E and construction industries along with their standards and protocols of work and processes. Case in point, our federal government – GSA (U.S. General Services Administration) as a client requires BIM to aid in the operations of its buildings. As one of the only design firms in the South to utilize BIM exclusively, DO is comprised of award-winning architects and engineers who are simultaneously BIM specialists.

Here is a big headline.

A smaller headline with the blue tone and different font.

Even smaller.

And then the smallest.

In addition, DO often works closely with a variety of subcontractors, which gives us a broad perspective of and extends our knowledge base and capacity for construction management, BIM/VDC and building envelope consulting.

United through our love of innovative technology and passion for design, DO’s architect team is setting the new standards for the AECO industry. As members of the National Institute of Building Science and buildingSMART alliance, DO’s team of civil and structural engineers masterfully marry science and art. DO delivers exceptional, timeless designs while meeting the strictest of budgets. DO’s expertise and interdisciplinary approach are reflected in our consummate delivery of the most effective and elegant solutions.

DO is a team of BIM-specializing architects and engineers who are leading the way to the future of design, construction and occupancy.
