OPN Architects’ interior design team grows by 3

OPN’s team of interior designers has grown by three new members. All are based in OPN’s Cedar Rapids studio.

Lisa Lindley brings more than 20 years of experience to OPN’s interior design team. An Iowa State University graduate, Lisa worked McCarty Holsaple McCarty in Tennessee before returning to Iowa to work for Bruggeman Design Group. Lisa owned an independent design company Lisa Lindley Interior Architecture for 12 years.

Brittany Banach joined OPN after a stint at Heery International in Iowa City. While there she worked exclusively with the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital. At OPN she has continued her relationship with the university working on the Athletic Learning Center and for another Iowa City-based client Integrated DNA Technologies.

Erica Steapp is a 2015 graduate of University of Northern Iowa with a Bachelors in Interior Design. Since joining OPN, Erica has worked on remodels for Eastern Iowa Health Center and Grant Wood AEA. She is also on the team designing Waunakee Community Bank in Wisconsin. From Solon Iowa, Erica enjoys helping each client reflect their personality through design.

OPN practices a holistic blend of architecture, planning and design. In-house interior designers, four of whom are registered with the state of Iowa, a distinct accreditation, allows OPN to provide our clients with exemplary service and innovative design solutions that create synergies between the interior and exterior of the built environment.
