Kyle Fiddelke is a Managing Principal with more than 22 years of experience in the profession and will soon celebrate 20 years of tenure with OJB. Kyle was instrumental in launching OJB’s west coast office in 2002, and has helped grow the practice to a staff of 25 talented designers. While Kyle manages some of OJB’s largest academic and master plan projects, his hands-on approach yields thoughtful designs that consider the impact of the smallest details and subtleties within the larger context.

Kyle is mindful of the healing and restorative properties of plants and their impact on the human experience.  He is committed to creating spaces that engage the senses and he values tranquil compositions that mitigate the clamor of everyday life. Kyle’s landscapes are beautiful and practical, encouraging human interaction with the natural environment and reinforcing a seamless relationship between architecture and the landscape. Kyle believes that a successful landscape can educate people on the importance of nature and its role in the built and natural environment. Smart, innovative solutions and a strong collaborative team are key to the success of his projects.
