Oppenheim Architecture is an international design practice operating with the philosophy that design follows life and form follows feeling. The firm designs and builds with the land, not on the land – framing nature through shapes and textures that enhance and celebrate their surroundings. Oppenheim strives to find harmony with nature in order to connect people with place.
Working out of Miami and Basel, the firm crafts its designs by carefully balancing the needs of the individual and the attributes of the location. Oppenheim’s work, including hospitality, commercial, retail and residential projects spanning more than 25 countries, carries an inherent sense of monumentality, producing meaningful moments that are both impactful and contemplative.
Founded in 1999 by Chad Oppenheim, a graduate of Cornell University, Fellow of the AIA and global lecturer, Oppenheim Architecture has received over 90 distinctions, including over 60 AIA Awards and a National Design Award from Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. Well-known for their commitment to green architecture, Chad and his team have spent decades creating architecture that heightens people’s connection to their surroundings, blurring the lines between indoors and outdoors, while creating one-of-a-kind experiences.
