Our mission is to unlock embedded potential by modeling how we should live and influencing the world through the practice of architecture.
We first seek to be the kind of community that people want to be part of. That starts with a culture based on values. It also means that we extend ourselves in ways that make a difference, that make the world a better place, that tap the embedded potential of our clients and their projects. Our vehicle for accomplishing this is architecture.
Founded in 1987 in San Antonio, Overland brings together diverse talents to provide comprehensive services in architectural design, urban design, and master planning throughout the world. Sensitive to the environmental and aesthetic contexts of our projects, we thoughtfully integrate technology, art, and craft to uncover world-class, innovative sustainable solutions for highly complex projects.
Our projects in Texas and across the United States and China, Latin America and the Middle East are diverse: Fortune 500 headquarters and art museums to visitors centers, homeless shelters to luxury private homes, universities to urban planning. Our design process is collaborative in nature, maximizing the unique knowledge and strengths of stakeholders, consultants, and teammates. These relationships are paramount and endure beyond our work, extending through the years and across the globe.
Our work has received more than 200 international, national, regional, and local design awards and has been published in numerous national and international publications.Overland was recognized by Architect magazine as one of the top 50 design firms in the United States in 2015 and one of the top 50 sustainable design firms in 2016.
