Our multidisciplinary teams deliver thoughtful, sophisticated, hard-working buildings which meet and exceed our clients’ goals—beautifully designed, highly efficient, great places to work that bring lasting value to their users and owners.


We defined the modern office, and with every project we are refining it.

Our work includes some of the most innovative developments in workplace design, from the column-free office plan that SOM pioneered in the 1950s to today’s highly functional, energy efficient, smart and sustainable high-rises and tech campuses.

Because the nature of work is always changing, we design for flexibility: we seek to anticipate organizational growth and facilitate new ways of working. Each studio at SOM is engaged in commercial projects, putting us at the forefront of emerging trends in local markets around the world.


Commercial office design has been SOM’s calling card ever since the 1950s, when Lever House transformed the notion of what a workplace could be. For decades we’ve continued to develop state-of-the-art strategies. Our leadership in design, technology, and management in this premier market is one we take great pride in.
