Opticos Design, Inc. is an urban design and architecture firm that specializes in the creation of vibrant, sustainable communities, comfortable pedestrian environments, and well-crafted buildings that will all withstand the test of time and reinforce the unique, local character of a place. Opticos became a B corporation to find support in creating a business that better reflects our passions and beliefs that businesses should be socially, environmentally, and fiscally responsible, as well as to provide a successful business model to other firms looking to do the same. The name Opticos has its roots in the term “logos opticos” which was used by Viturvius in his architectural treatise, “The Ten Books of Architecture,” referring to the innate sense of harmony within well-composed visual information. The company's practice embodies this sense of harmony in the inviting public spaces and overall great places they create in their town planning practice, as well as in the well proportioned and comforting traditional and classical buildings they craft.
