Low Design Office is an internationally recognized architecture and design studio that focuses on something simple: realizing more with less.

LowDO formulated around the proposition that high-art borrows from the low, that transformative innovation in creative fields most often originates when the creator must overcome limited means and resources to provide meaning in their work. We use this as a guiding principal to deliver high impact design for a broader public through low resource, low tech, low carbon strategies. Our goal is to find and finesse an integrative systems approach to building - what we call "low design".

We believe that spaces shape well-being, that humans and ecologies perform best at low stress levels, and that optimizing efficiency with harmony can maximize the power of built environments. As an integrated design practice, our process bridges design and construction: we help clients define their goals and project scope, plan strategically, build effectively, and live healthfully. We collaborate to craft high-impact buildings, landscapes, and cities, with low carbon footprint and environmental impact, that bring life into balance for people and place.

We aim to build societal equity by lowering barriers to access and empowering communities through inclusive innovation.

Maybe low is the new minimalism.
