OWIU, an abbreviation for The Only Way Is Up, is a full-service architectural design office located in the heart of Los Angeles. Our office and showroom is centered in the burgeoning Art’s District, a spot that has become the Silicon Valley for young creatives. Our field of expertise include, but are not limited to, architecture and product design, construction, architectural visualization, branding and content creation for businesses and visual effects in the form of animations and renderings. We approach every project with a strong emphasis on aesthetics and precision of form, coupled with a strong narrative and conviction.
Imbued in the practice lies an innovative and progressive mindset that naturally creates a mission to propel design forward given the technological advances of contemporary society. OWIU is the brainchild of Joel Wong and Amanda Gunawan, two designers with proficient architectural knowledge.
