People

We are our own chosen family of architects, designers, strategists, techies, and big picture thinkers connected by shared values and a commitment to an inclusive culture where we can all do our best, most creative work.

Our Mission


We envision the future of people and architecture through the design of equitable and resilient environments where diverse individuals are inspired, organizations thrive, institutions flourish, culture takes center stage, and communities are uplifted.

Our Values


From our Senior Principals to our newest team members, we all work to model values that form the core of our success whether in boardrooms or on construction sites.

Agility

We are nimble in our thinking and responsive in our approach. Through constant exploration, we foster a culture of innovation to the benefit of our clients, our people, and our communities.

Integrity

We are driven advocates for the interests of our clients, our people, our communities, and for the authenticity of our work. Even when no one is watching, we strive to make the best ethical, design, and business decisions.

Partnership

Our success is fueled by the strength of long-lasting relationships. From our most senior leaders to our newest team members, we are all tireless advocates for the interests of our clients, the success of our shared projects, and the value of a vibrant work culture.

Positivity

We approach clients, our team members, and industry colleagues with openness, inclusivity, and the belief in possibility. While we recognize challenges when they arise, we invite dialogue and endeavor to be part of the solution.

Diversity at OTJ


We believe that the future of our practice and industry must be defined by measurable action towards greater Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Access.

We actively promote a culture of inclusion where all individuals, are equally welcomed, valued, and respected, and celebrate a workplace where 84% of our team identifies as part of a minority or protected class. We recognize, however, that centuries of prejudice, discrimination, and silence, cannot be undone.
