ORA provides innovative design services to a diverse range of community-focused organizations and private clients, with particular emphasis on the design of arts and cultural venues, public open spaces, workspaces, and adaptive transformation of aging facilities. We collaborate with clients, community, consultant teams, and crafts people to create transformative environments which enhance each client’s ability to achieve their mission on all levels, from community engagement to creative gathering spaces, with environmental, economic and social sustainability at the forefront. We accomplish more with less, offering large firm expertise with small firm responsiveness and personal approach. Each design evolves through open-minded exploration focused on expressing each client’s unique context, program and values.
