Ogrydziak Prillinger Architects is a progressive San Francisco-based office that has been globally recognized for projects ranging in scale from institutions to private homes, as well as interior and object design. Founded in 2004, OPA is an idea-driven office committed to finding design solutions that both expand the possibilities inherent in architecture and resonate within their particular context. While every project originates as a response to specific requirements of site, program and client, it evolves as an exploration of its own internal potential rather than reflecting a predetermined architectural style. In all the work, there is an emphasis on shaping and choreographing spatial experiences through the consideration of movement, perception and formal logic. As a result, the work is distinctive for its conceptual clarity and strong visual presence.
Luke Ogrydziak and Zoë Prillinger each received M. Arch degrees from Princeton University and have taught at Harvard University and the University of California, Berkeley. They recently received the Architectural League of New York’s ‘Emerging Voices’ award, which recognizes individuals and firms with distinct design voices and the potential to influence the disciplines of architecture, landscape design and urbanism. OPA has been widely featured in international publications such as The New York Times, Metropolis, and Wallpaper*, Architecture, Architectural Record, and GA Houses, and in multiple exhibitions at the GA Gallery in Tokyo. Their work has received numerous American Institute of Architects San Francisco and California awards.
