About Us

DeOld Andersen Architecture is an architecture and design partnership founded in 2010 located in Omaha, Nebraska. We design buildings, spaces, and neighborhoods with a commitment to sustainability and an optimistic future. Our projects have ranged from pocket parks and public spaces; public school renovations and additions; strategic planning, programing and designs for the workplace; the rehabilitation of historic buildings, the design of single family and multifamily residences; and speculative research projects. We serve developers and property owners, small business owners and entrepreneurs, government and civic agencies, private individuals and homeowners, and the occasional customer who knocks on our storefront needing help with a building permit for a small renovation or addition to their home. We believe surprise and delight should be part of the everyday experience of buildings and spaces.

DAA is a City of Omaha Tier 1 Certified Small and Emerging Business, and is licensed to practice in Iowa, Nebraska, and New York State, and holds NCARB certification facilitating reciprocal registration within the United States and Canada.
