History

Oglesby Greene is an architectural, planning and interior design practice with a distinguished heritage.  Evolved from and firmly rooted in the modernist tradition of architecture, the partners are committed to producing notable buildings, spaces and landscapes that are both timeless and of its time.  The Oglesby Group and the Office of Graham Greene merged in 1995 and continue to provide quality design, a high level of service and personal involvement that is the firm’s hallmark.

Throughout its 64 year history, the firm’s emphasis has been placed on quality rather than largeness and quantity.  To achieve the quality and personal involvement desired by the firm’s principals, the size of the firm has remained relatively modest - by design. 

This vision for the firm has resulted in a uniquely diversified practice, including civic, religious, commercial, educational, residential and adaptive re-use projects. These projects have been recognized with numerous architectural design awards (AIA), more than any other firm in the Metroplex.  Oglesby Greene was named the recipient of the Firm Award, the highest honor bestowed upon a firm by the Texas Society of Architects.           

While Oglesby Greene’s rich history is varied in project types and sizes, the firm’s high quality design and client satisfaction is constant.
