The OPN team is excited to welcome to Paul Desmond to the Cedar Rapids office. He joins us from a small design firm in Indianapolis, where he also finished his Masters of Architecture degree at Ball State University. Paul traveled extensively through his studies, which helped him find a passion for telling the stories and showing the impact of great architecture and design; it can forever change cities, communities, and more importantly, people. He firmly believes he has a responsibility to give clients, communities, and public users the opportunity to experience great architecture and design. A Chicago Area-native, Paul is new to Iowa and is already loving his new home, the Oak Hill Jackson Neighborhood of Cedar Rapids. When he’s not trying to save the world one design at a time, he enjoys playing volleyball, traveling abroad, exploring his new state, and a good craft beer.
