INVISION is a progressive and award-winning 80+ person, planning, architecture and interior design firm with two studios in Iowa – Des Moines and Waterloo. We are currently in the process of opening an Iowa City studio and looking for leaders in our focus markets to support the work of our eastern Iowa clients. We are large enough to work on almost any project type but small enough to give our staff the opportunity to become involved in projects from concept through construction. Our K‑12 market has seen significant growth in the past 5 years, mostly stemming from our planning and bond referendum work. We have won design awards at state, regional and national levels which speaks to the quality of work at INVISION. We are conscientious toward sustainability and work hard to understand how design impacts the places we touch. We work in a collaborative studio environment that embraces leadership, flexibility, communication, opportunity, creativity, fun and smart thinking. We believe this environment encourages the spirit from which great architecture and architects are made.
