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.

Digital Experience Design
Gensler’s Digital Experience Design (DXD) practice connects the worlds of physical and digital design by delivering holistic strategies and integrated designs for the built environment.
Our work extends from immersive brand experiences and exhibits to connected customer experience and smart building design.
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.
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.
Urban Strategies & 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.
