Ohlson Lavoie Collaborative (OLC) is an international architectural firm, founded in 1961 with offices in Denver, Orlando, Tokyo and Cairo. We are committed, enthusiastic and driven to deliver stellar architecture, interior design and aquatic design.

Our design process is enriched by collaborative spirit, creative commitment and a client-centered attitude. We partner clients’ business goals and strategic insights with our aesthetic vision, deep experience, and problem solving skills to create superior outcomes and successful design projects. Everyone at OLC is committed to truly understanding each client’s unique needs and is dedicated to adding value through design by delivering maximum impact for each dollar invested. Value-conscious, client-centered, custom-fitted design is a strategic investment for every owner. We apply principles of smart design to honor that investment and to produce measurable returns.

OLC has a wealth of experience in remodel and addition projects. For tenants who will occupy space within an existing building, OLC offers full architectural services including assessment, space planning, tenant finish, adaptive re-use, architectural and interior design as well as construction observation.  Examples of tenant spaces include medical offices, space conversion from administrative area to spa, building addition to existing facility and historic preservation/adaptive re-use of hotel space.  

We work hand-in-hand with the ownership group, managers and staff to understand the goals for the facility, then tailor our design to create the desired ambience and flair. We incorporate branding standards where needed, but unleash creativity in every space, ultimately creating a seamless user experience and easily managed facility for staff.

The secret to the design success experienced by our clients is easily explained. Treat each new assignment as a fresh challenge. Listen to our client’s agenda.  Respect their priorities.  Focus on enrichment of the user experience.  Stay abreast of thought leaders in the industry.  Most of all, believe in the power of design to change lives for the better.  OLC is honored to work with our valued clients to bring beauty and function to their projects.
