Steven Ginn Architects is a full-service architecture and interior design firm, specializing in the design of new homes and residential remodels, as well as commercial, religious and retail spaces. Based in Omaha with projects nationwide, our experience ranges in style from traditional to contemporary, in scale from furniture design to multi-million dollar residences and commercial complexes and in geography from downtown Omaha to the hilltops of Tennessee and the mountains of South Dakota.
As a small firm, we have the ability to provide hands-on, personal attention from start to finish. We are dedicated to providing quality service within our clients’ budgets and time frames. Our design process involves a thorough consideration of client, site, program, building technology, and budget that leads to sustainable design solutions with exemplary design quality. Our projects are shaped by our clients’ aspirations, use durable materials, employ creative design solutions, and artfully respond to each project’s unique site. We strive to rethink the typical; using materials and new technology to save money in the long run, conserve resources, and create spaces that stir the soul.
We are committed to sustainable design and green building.
We acknowledge that construction and building operation are remarkably resource intensive, and we take the responsibility to help sustain our fragile environment seriously. For us, green design is about more than just conserving natural resources and reducing energy consumption; we believe designing with nature in mind helps us create lasting, beautiful buildings that reduce utility costs, increase occupant comfort, and create healthier and safer indoor environments. Our comprehensive understanding of the entire project, whole-systems design approach, and conscious engagement of site lead to beautiful buildings that will be cared for and enjoyed for generations to come.
