Our Omaha Studio is a Diverse and Creative Workspace That Not Only Caters to Our Creative Needs But Also Allows Us to Showcase Our Abilities to Clients.

The Omaha studio is located in a unique part of part of Nebraska—technically in Ralston, what’s known as the “donut hole” of Omaha. 

Ralston has lots of pride in its community, and our Omaha architecture team is honored to be part of it. Major redevelopment is happening all around us — and we get to help support those efforts by making the city an up-and-coming space for everyone, including entrepreneurs, families, and students.

Top 5 Reasons We Love Our Omaha Studio

  • We work in a unique space—it’s fun, creative, and in a historical building with lots of character.
  • Great lunch and shopping options are only a 5-minute drive away.
  • Our office is a fun combination of old and new. We support sustainability and reuse what we can, like turning old doors into walls and using a reclaimed bowling alley lane. 
  • Our team respects different workstyles, and we have various types of workstations to accommodate whatever type of work needs to be done.
  • Our break area has a TV, bar, and kitchen, and the space feels like a good middle ground between home and work.

Hometown Feature

A Historic Redevelopment

The Granary District, which surrounds our Omaha architecture firm, is creating jobs, innovation, and economic revitalization. As part of the Granary District, we helped bring a venue to life that features social and business events along Ralston’s Main Street and gives one of the city’s oldest buildings a much-needed facelift.

“We built this office for expansion and growth. Some on our team have been doing this work for 20+ years and others have been doing it for two years or less. We all have a lot to teach one another.”
