OTJ Architects has expanded its practice with the opening of a San Francisco, CA studio. The launch of the firm’s first West Coast office follows less than four months after the opening of our Florida location and less than two years after the introduction of our New York studio. This rapid growth responds to the requests of existing clients, eager to broaden the geographic reach of a successful design and business partnership that began on the East Coast.
Managing Partner Lance Jaccard, AIA, IIDA, LEED AP, remarked: “The Bay Area is a thriving hub of innovation that we believe is uniquely aligned to the progressive design typologies we have successfully introduced in workplaces across North America. We look forward to the opportunity to deepen existing relationships and forge new ones in one of the nation’s most exacting design and real estate markets.”
Our San Francisco office will be headed by Alana Lopez, RA, NCIDQ, LEED AP, who joins the firm as Studio Director. Alana is a recognized design professional who has held senior leadership positions at premier San Francisco and Miami architecture firms such as Stantec, ADD Inc, and Perkins + Will. She views each project as an opportunity to challenge mainstream assumptions through an interdisciplinary approach that balances architecture, interior design, and branding against critical human and business objectives. Alana has delivered projects with an unwavering commitment to design excellence for such noted organizations as Knotel, Cisco, and Scotiabank.
