The more you know, the less you need.Yvon Chouinard
We believe that design and performance are one and the same. We strive to make all our buildings energy-positive so they give back to the environment. Through our many years of practice, we’ve developed a rigorous process designed to shift expectations.
Built with a primary goal: to limit the need for energy.Forbes
At OPAL, a future in which buildings give back is our present reality. Seamless functionality, light-filled spaces and low impact materials provide astonishing thermal comfort and healthy indoor air quality. Generating integrated, renewable energy means our buildings pay their own way—and then some.
Is your present guided by the future or guided by the past?Olafur Eliasson
Founded in 2005 as the architecture half of the groundbreaking design/build company GO Logic, OPAL launched as an independent architecture firm in 2019.
Our sister company, GO Lab, complements our work by researching, developing, and manufacturing sustainable materials for high performance construction. The result is an accelerated cycle of continuous improvement in the quality and performance of our projects.
