OKB Architecture + Construction was founded in 2006.
OKB is a full service Design-Build studio dedicated to the creation of fresh works of architecture through design and construction.
We believe that every project provides opportunities for innovation within the context of the site, the goals of the Client, and the demands of construction. We seek to provide inspiration through a diverse range of influences, techniques, and expertise in the craft of making.
Our work covers a range of the built environment from residential remodels to the commercial office interiors, from the urban infill site including Small Lot Subdivisions, to the mountain-side retreat, and from the private deck to the bustling restaurant. Through this experience, we attempt to constantly investigate the possibilities of occupation and activation of space.
OKB provides Clients with a passion and commitment to real solutions that are efficient in their spatial organizations, functional requirements, technical solutions, material selection and sustainability. We strive to be open and responsive to all the Client needs. Our challenge is to create a collaborative approach among all parties that fosters creativity and efficient solutions that exceed expectations.
