Opticos is a team of urban designers, architects, and strategists that partners with clients who want to lead the way in creating vibrant, diverse, walkable urban places. To us, architecture and planning must play a role in defining more sustainable, equitable, healthy, compact patterns of development that improve the quality of life for everyone. This starts with revitalizing existing urban places, but also includes the transformation of suburban places into more urban ones and the creation of thoughtful, new walkable urban communities. Our award-winning work at the building, neighborhood, and citywide scales follows the principles inherent in the Charter of the New Urbanism. This work includes a Gold Nugget-winning and LEED-ND Phase 1-Certified Hercules Waterfront District, CNU Charter Award-winning Seaside Beachfront and Town Square Plan and L’Enfant Award-winning master planning work in Gabon, Africa.
