"To be relevant, architecture should aspire to raise our collective sense of worth and provide a backdrop for our shadows to play."

Colin Campbell

MIBA

Regional Director

If Colin looks familiar, perhaps it's because he was the featured architect on the PBS TV series, "This Old House: The Bermuda Project," where he helped to educate homeowners on the charm and sustainability of Bermuda architecture. As head of OBMI’s Urban Lifestyle studio, Colin and his team transform client ideas into inspiring and highly detailed architectural form. His work blends environmentally and socially responsible design with a pragmatic approach to business, creating some of the Caribbean's most admired commercial buildings, private homes and hospitality projects. Highlights include the KEMH Acute Care Hospital, Lamb Foggo Urgent Care Center, and luxurious West Water residence.

Before completing his bachelor’s degree in architecture from California Polytechnic State University, Colin spent six months in Tuscany studying Italy’s greatest art and buildings. He began his architectural career in 1982 at a California firm, and later completed a five-month, 4,000-mile cycling trip across the United States. He returned to his native Bermuda in 1984 to join an architecture firm, which he ultimately acquired and ran for 15 years. He formed a partnership with OBMI and joined the company in 1999.

Colin is a member and past president of the Institute of Bermuda Architects (IBA), the Bermuda Institute of Chartered Arbiters (CIArb Bermuda), and a former chairman of the Bermuda Chamber of Commerce Tourism Division. Colin is also a committed and active contributor to many community-based organizations and issues in Bermuda. In his free time, he enjoys sailing, scouting, gardening, and reading.
