Over 80 years and we're just getting started

In 1936, two ambitious architects from McGill University, Wilfred Onions and Valmer Bouchard, came to Bermuda to turn their creative visions into living, enduring history. Soon after, they were joined by John McCulloch and spent 20 years realizing that dream. In time, they defined the internationally acclaimed Bermuda design style and instituted a “sense of place” culture across the island. This was the beginning of OBMI. Through the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, the firm expanded to interior design, landscape architecture, master planning, small works projects and solutions for seniors’ divisions. Today, OBMI is an internationally-acclaimed firm with clients from around the globe. The Bermuda office is run by Michele Smith and Colin Campbell, who oversee an operation that provides turn-key service across the entire design and development spectrum. From our origins in Bermuda, we have expanded to include offices and studios throughout the Caribbean and beyond. With an extensive portfolio of projects, we have positioned ourselves as a prestigious design firm whose work beautifies coastlines, hillsides, and cities around the world.

“With OBMI there is an assurance factor that there’s a quality of work and a quality of leadership. You know you’re in safe hands and that you’re getting the project done well.”
