At Omgivning, we are placemakers and creative problem-solvers. Our designers breathe new life into urban spaces through richly programmed environments that inspire warmth and vitality.

We’re proud of our unusually great office culture, which relies on collaboration, opportunity-sharing and low egos. We enjoy strong relationships with consultants and clients and our projects are among Los Angeles' most visible. We love to explore the fascinating place that is downtown LA, on tours of our own construction projects or during happy hours at our nearby bars and restaurants. We don’t follow the mold of traditional architecture firms. 

If you’re like us, you treat small spaces and enormous buildings with the same emphasis on intimacy and authenticity. Working here means you’ll dive into the extraordinary challenges of making new projects from existing structures. You’ll work closely with a range of city agencies and add to our collective understanding of all phases of design and construction. Our efforts add something special to neighborhoods all over LA. And eventually, with your help, all over the world.
