OpDes Architecture is a proprietary Architecture + Engineering design firm that specializes in the Research and Development of Energy Independent Smart Buildings and their technologies.

In addition to providing services of a traditional architecture firm, OpDes (pronounced op-dez) focuses on the integration of sustainable building systems and technologies through a holistic process called “Optimized Design.”

Designing buildings that accommodate the approach of Energy Independence to meet future clean energy standards is a major predicament facing architects today. Our solution is the concurrent design of both the building and its energy systems as a single layer through our unmatched expertise of over 20 years of design and innovation experience.

OpDes Architecture implements digital models that help reduce the unknowns when it comes to construction.  With Building Information Modeling (BIM) both true cost, sequencing and project lifecycle information can be baked into the design at the earliest stages providing the maximum value to your design decisions.

Smart Buildings and Architecture Computational Fluid Dynamics

Fluid Dynamics

Fluid Dynamics is a collaboration between architects, engineers, and CFD specialists using our custom specialized software, to create accurate simulations. Our CFD simulations provide an expertise and validation to ensure the results reflect real-world conditions accurately.

Smart Homes

OpDes Architecture Smart Homes are equipped with various connected devices and technologies that can be remotely controlled, automated, and monitored to enhance convenience, comfort, energy efficiency, security, and overall quality of life for its occupants. These devices and technologies are typically interconnected through the Internet of Things (IoT).

Smart Buildings - Cloud Machine, Solidworks model

Smart Buildings

Smart buildings take the principles of smart home technology to a larger scale, integrating advanced technologies and systems to create more efficient, sustainable, and user-friendly commercial and residential structures. Smart buildings leverage automation, data analytics, and connectivity to optimize various aspects of building operations, management, and user experience. 



Opdes Architecture provides Web3 services. This "third generation" of the internet, is a concept that envisions a more decentralized, user-centric, and open internet ecosystem. It ddresses some of the limitations and challenges of the current Web 2.0 by leveraging blockchain technology and other decentralized protocols.
