Successful buildings capture the spirit of their surroundings, even as they assert their own identity. They’re visually appealing, healthy, comfortable, flexible, secure and efficient, a pleasure to be in. And they pay their way, adding real value for their owners and users.
Gensler architecture reflects our knowledge of how people and organizations use and experience place and space. We work collaboratively with clients, communities and end users to create buildings that work well on every level, inside and out. We deliver them across our global markets with a consistently high standard of service.
Gensler’s brand designers use words and images to orchestrate compelling experiences that lead to marketplace differentiation and brand preference. Our approach combines design and architecture expertise with a unique point of view and strong communications skill set. The result: brands that build trust, inspire confidence and forge lasting relationships.
As consultants, we help our clients make better decisions about how they support their people, position their businesses and manage their assets. We connect strategy with implementation and deliver successful, idea-driven solutions that are both realistic and actionable. Whatever the size of the organization, we provide the tools needed to enable future change.
Our consultants address real estate and facilities, the workplace, information solutions and business strategy — with the objective of improving organizational performance. Our services include strategic planning, real estate and portfolio analysis, repositioning/relocation analysis, change management and data management.
Gensler designs interior spaces for living and working. Interior performance can be measured in human and organizational terms: higher productivity, greater creativity and innovation, increased patronage or sales. Hitting the mark means designing not just for visual impact, but also for health, comfort, flexibility and ease of use.
Our designers work collaboratively and strategically to deliver innovation, quality and sustainable performance. Our projects are international in scope and range from offices to stores, academic and civic buildings, convention centers, and entertainment and cultural venues.
Planning & Urban Design
Gensler’s planners work globally on a broad range of projects, from new urban districts and developments to suburban and exurban campuses, centers and communities. Sustainability is an important focus — with equal concern for the socio-economic health of the community and for its environmental quality. As urban designers, we know how to bring forward the experiential attributes that make a place memorable and attractive.
Great products begin with insights about market opportunities and user needs. As a firm that's constantly creating and reshaping the built environment, we have a unique viewpoint about the products and materials that form the world around us. We see the marketplace openings that spur new concepts, as well as the requirements and restraints these products have to address.
Gensler partners with manufacturers to develop successful new products. As designers, we draw on our knowledge of new materials, technologies and processes to enhance margins, performance, sustainability and market appeal. As strategists, we work in concert with manufacturer design teams, helping them understand product and use requirements from an end-user perspective.

We see sustainable design as a triple win: good for business, people and the planet. Since 1970, when we designed an energy-efficient “office of the future” for Pacific Gas & Electric, our design practice has considered how decisions made today affect our lives tomorrow. Today, Gensler is a global sustainability leader. Our credits include the first U.S. office building to use under-floor air distribution, and later the first retail rollout prototype, data center and car dealership to earn LEED® certifications. Recognizing these pioneering achievements, the U.S. Green Building Council presented us its Leadership Award for Organizational Excellence in 2005.
