It’s been a very good few years for Landscape Architecture, especially in Naples, a town synonymous with beautiful design and luxurious outdoor living. OPi has landed several notable projects in Southwest Florida, including a premiere luxury beachfront resort and up-and-coming mixed use destination projects. We routinely collaborate with the best-of-the-best architects, builders, and developers in the region, on a wide variety of well-rounded projects. We have a healthy waiting list of residential estate projects in the most exclusive neighborhoods around, any one of which most landscape architects would covet as a signature project.

Our culture is admittedly a bit unconventional for a thriving design firm. We work together, competing to be the best design firm, not as players but as one team. We’re a ridiculously talented group, but one that gets along like family and has a lot of fun working together. We have an office-wide design workshop called a charette almost every week to keep our creative skills sharp, monthly contests as an outlet for our competitive sides, and a Golden Retriever named Dakota who works alongside us a few days a week. We offer very competitive compensation and benefits, mentoring, and great opportunities for advancement within the firm.
