OPENSCOPE STUDIO is a San Francisco practice committed to exploring a wide range of project types at all scales, from architecture and urban planning to furniture design. The shift in size and context allows us to create informed design, and address multiple aesthetic, social, technical, and economic goals. Coming from diverse professional and personal backgrounds, we are united by an absolute love of architecture and urbanism. With 30 years of combined experience, we have the communication skills, technical know-how, inquisitiveness, collaborative spirit, and design chops to make places that people value.
