FME Architecture + Design Announces Membership in ONE Global Design Network

Membership Positions Local Firm to Grow International Reach

San Francisco – FME Architecture + Design, an award-winning architecture and interior design firm based in San Francisco, has become a member of ONE Global Design, an international network of architectural and interior design firms. FME joins 16 other independently owned and operated corporate architectural and interiors firms across the United States, Canada, and Mexico, each considered best in class in their markets.

The membership provides FME a new solution to conduct projects nationally and internationally by drawing on the knowledge, experience, and local expertise of the partner firms in the ONE Global Design network. The network approach allows organizations to work with an architecture firm that’s familiar with their brand, vision, and company culture in partnership with a firm that understands the nuances of the community where their project is located.

ONE Global Design’s approach marks a welcome change in the industry: Historically, corporations in need of architectural and design services in different cities or countries had only two options: Hire different small firms in each market and oversee multiple individual projects, or go with one large firm with the resources but limited local insight, talent, and accountability.

“ONE Global Design’s network brings local talent and knowledge to the international stage,” said Eric Ibsen, Chief Design Officer. “As FME expands its practice, this network of best in class firms gives us face-to-face relationships and business partners with boots on the ground in the markets we’re eager to access.”

With more than 500 architecture and interiors professionals among its members, ONE Global Design would collectively rank as the 6th largest architecture and design firm in the country, according to Interior Design 2014 rankings. ONE Global Design continues to expand and anticipates adding new member firms to further extend the depth and reach of the network in the United States and globally.
