OTJ Architects is one of the leading interior architecture firms, working with organizations throughout the United States. We work with over 400 organizations a year, assessing their needs, advising on real estate decisions and designing high performing workplaces. Each organization has their own set of problems that need to be solved through the design of their office space. Our experience has proven that while each client is unique, there are similarities in the issues they all face. OTJ has an office in Washington DC and New York City. DC Office: 555 11th Street, NW Suite 200 Washington, DC 20004 202.621.1000 NYC Office: 1407 Broadway 28th Floor New York, NY 10018 646.277.1950

Mission: We are workplace designers who focus on you – your goals and your opportunities – to create a unique vision of your future work environment. The workplace is evolving constantly, and more importantly, so are the people who occupy it. We develop our design solutions with the people who will use them, resulting in unique spaces that will adapt and grow with you. Our approach is rooted in the belief that design is a tool to improve people’s lives: good design strengthens workplace culture, communicates brand and improves wellness. Our goal is to constantly challenge ourselves to design better, smarter workplaces that allow people to work strategically, flexibly and with a better quality of life.
