Open Range Brings Exteriors In-House

Written by Open Range Interiors

You’ve grown to rely on our team as your design guide for commercial and residential interior design, but we’re excited to announce that we’re joining forces with landscape design/build firm, Land Design.
Take a peek to learn what this spells for Open Range and our team.

Whimsical SLC-Based Interior Design Shop Adds Landscape Division Creating an End-to-End Design Collective

Through its union with Land Design by Armstrong, Open Range aims to help the Mountain West bring inspiration to life, creating holistic residential and commercial designs that stretch beyond clients’ four walls.

In a deal that’s nearly a year in the making, SLC-based design mainstay Open Range is joining forces with Land Design by Armstrong, an equal in its consistent presence in the region’s landscape design community. The deal brings two award-winning teams together under a single roof. It opens up a new world of possibility, at the ready to steer InterMountain West’s most inspired residential and commercial development projects.

“I’m not the first to say it. These organizations are bursting with amazing talent and the capacity to act as real partners to residential and commercial clients, using their expertise to elevate ideas, focus vision, and realize dreams,” says Molly Louthan, CEO and visionary behind the deal. “In the coming months, we’ll unveil a new joint venture grown from these sturdy design shops. We have an amazing team of big-picture thinkers with an artist’s lens who can help clients envision and curate spaces to experience life truly. Whether that’s an inviting lobby, a jaw-dropping fireplace, or a private garden of Eden, we create multi-functional spaces for a well-lived life.”

Over the next six months, the deal will have very little day-to-day impact on clients from both organizations. Open Range will continue the move to its new office, which is just steps from the current location in Midvale and double the size. The organization is also continuing to add designers to its commercial, multi-family, and residential teams. On the Land Design side, the 40-person team will join Open Range in the new office space this fall.

“This new venture addresses a previously unmet need in SLC, guiding homeowners towards a seamless vision for their interior and exterior spaces. Plus, there’s a tremendous crossover opportunity between the two businesses, like providing outdoor furniture for landscaping clients, so we’re excited to see the positive impact across all sides of the deal.” says Louthan.
