Downtown Lexington Corporation's Member of the Week is EOP Architects! EOP Architects is an award-winning architecture and interior design firm located in Downtown Lexington. Since its’ original founding in 1981, the firm has capacious experience designing all types of structures in Lexington and they enjoy working with clients to create lasting designs that elevate and inspire.

EOP was founded after co-founders Rick Ekhoff and Paul Ochenkoski who worked for architectural firms in Chicago, and New York, as well as in Kentucky. Ekhoff and Ochenkoski decided that Lexington was the best fit for the company they wanted to build, so they began recruiting more expertise, to expand their team. The two added designer, technician, and manager Richard Polk in 1984, along with architect Brent Bruner and interior designer Chris Estes in the years following.  EOP added more unique talent with each inclusion to round out the company and reach their goal of exceeding client expectations.

Although EOP has completed work in over 30 states, they hold great pride in their Lexington projects. Some of EOP's work in Lexington includes the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy/BioPharm Complex, Shriners Hospitals for Children Medical Center, Southland Christian Church, Kentucky Horse Park Rolex Stadium, Baptist Health Clinic, Liberty Elementary, the Lexhold Office Building, and much more.

Through all the work completed and in progress in Downtown Lexington, EOP always seeks to enhance the human experience though their thoughtful design. The team of architects and designers believe that creativity is fostered by all in an environment where challenging the process is the daily routine.

EOP is always up for a new design challenge and loves working with some of the best clients and projects in the region. If you ever get the chance to check out their projects, past or present, check out their headquarters in Lexington and offices in Louisville.
