Our work is grounded in respect for structure, materials and their expression, allowing us to achieve clarity and movement to both a physical space and our work as a whole. Because of the fluid nature of our business, we serve as the owner, the architect, the developer and the general contractor, providing unique degrees of freedom that allow us to work from a shared vision.

Everyone who is a part of the Optima ecosystem — our partners, our customers, our team, our investors and the people in the communities where we build — we encourage an intuitive appreciation for the ways in which the joy we derive from exceptional design can enhance the quality of community and the human experience it supports. We enjoy our freedom and adaptability — inherently derived from our control of all aspects of the design and development process. Each and every day we make our decisions based on what we believe is right, without compromising our beliefs.

The Optima business model is a holistic experience; our passion for perfection affects each facet of the process.
