About Us

firm history

ObjectSpace is a design firm with principals and longtime friends Todd James Bertellotti and Dwight Doty.  Todd and Dwight met in undergraduate school at Iowa State University and traveled through Europe together where they explored various approaches to design and architecture.  Todd and Dwight worked for several years at the same architectural firm and reunited after a brief hiatus in 2005 at ObjectSpace.

firm profile

ObjectSpace holds the belief that a well designed environment does not stop at the architecture but also integrates the objects and space within.  We believe in working closely with clients to establish architectural goals and to implement them through the balance of design, program, budget and schedule.  It is our mission to use the characteristics of each site to inform our design and to create an experience that establishes a connection between the interior and exterior.  ObjectSpace focuses on attention to detail, a love for craft and enthusiasm for every project.
