Architectural Design


committed to design excellence & sustainability

Carbon Design & Architecture, formerly Carlson Studio Architecture and OT9 Design,  houses LEED accredited professionals who are passionate and dedicated to sustainable design, the highest quality solutions, cost control initiatives, and implementation of innovative, proven technologies. Review the green building awards we have achieved as well as the LEED certified acknowledgement we have received this year.


We view your building as part of the greater “whole system,” because it is an expression of energy, materials, AND design. That means green design, green construction, and the usage of materials that are reusable and have minimal impact on the environment. Buildings are not comprised of isolated components, but rather, they are integrations of systems that interact with and contribute to one another.


Our approach to both residential and commercial design allows you the freedom to implement diverse architectural solutions without limiting you to particular building types or styles. The strategies we implement result in creating beautiful buildings that are safer, healthier, more functional, and comprehensively efficient. They impact the environment in a positive way, just as they impact YOU.
