In Swedish, omgivning means environment or ambience—the way a place feels.

We’re in love with the extraordinary urban fabric of places like downtown Los Angeles. Our architecture and interiors projects reveal hidden value by uncovering new character.

Projects

Our staff thrives among the design challenges of today’s evolving cities. We breathe life into new and old places. With our clients as collaborators, we give form to the vision while resolving issues of code, structure and space. This work can be incredibly complicated. But it’s deeply satisfying.

About

The roots of Omgivning are in downtown Los Angeles, where we’re based. Since the beginning, our early goal has been to support the revitalization of DTLA. That process is now becoming a reality. People are flocking here to live, work and meet friends. As downtown grows, our firm’s goals are steadily growing too.

Culture

Our cultural curiosity extends past the office door, into the neighborhood and well beyond. Whatever the context, we’re always trying to deepen insight and nourish connections.
