Personal Design :: Inside and Out

At Ogawa Fisher Architects, our goal is to create a beautiful environment that is the perfect fit for you.  We start every project by listening to your wishes and helping you organize your priorities.  Our personal, collaborative process ensures that your project is truly custom and carefully tailored to meet your needs and the highest design standards.

To ensure an integrated design solution you will enjoy for years to come, our thoughtful, holistic approach considers the entire space and surroundings, short- and long-term goals, as well as neighborhood context, terrain, and site orientation.  Throughout each project, we take care to incorporate sustainability and green building principles whenever possible.

Ogawa Fisher Architects has extensive experience designing a variety of detail-oriented projects and managing them through construction.  We are adept at navigating the complexities of local planning and building agencies, and we relish the challenge of exploring new sites and cities.  With our full range of design and client services, you can relax and enjoy the experience, knowing that we are paying close attention to every detail—from the first design sketch until you step into your newly completed space.

A multicultural client base inspires us to stay current with local and global trends, while never losing sight of the beauty of clean and timeless design.  We find our inspiration in nature, art, music, good design, gorgeous objects, humor, fun, and delicious food.
