CO Architects: A Culture of Discovery
CO Architects serves mission-driven clients with designs that are catalysts for collaboration and progress — places that support new ways of working, learning, healing, and innovating.
Design emerges through a creative, iterative process of discovery. Clients and consultants are collaborative partners in their persistent search for the solution that best fits the needs of the program and site. Principals actively lead project teams in a practice founded on a structure of participation. Their senior staff share a common store of knowledge and expertise, developed over nearly three decades, which informs every project.
Founded in 1986 as a regional office of Anshen + Allen, CO became an autonomous office a decade later. In recognition of their commitment to collaboration, cohesion, and commitment, the independent firm became CO Architects in 2005. Over the past 33 years, the CO philosophy has propelled the firm’s growth to 115 multi-disciplinary designers and staff, supporting clients and projects in 27 states and the UK.
