Opticos Design is a team of urban designers, architects, and strategists finding new solutions to the most challenging housing and community issues of our time. Opticos was founded in 2000 on the belief that walkable places are critical for healthy, resilient and equitable communities. Through that expertise, they introduced the concept of Missing Middle Housing, a transformative idea that highlights the need for diverse, affordable housing options in walkable urban places. In addition, they are leaders in the development of Form-Based Coding, zoning reform needed to make those walkable places a reality. Opticos is a B-Corp headquartered in Berkeley, CA.
