ZGF Architects is a design firm with a focus on architecture, interior design, and planning. The partnership formed over 70 years ago with a mission to strive for design excellence, stewardship of the natural and built environment, and exceptional client service. A dedication to design excellence at every level has resulted in a nationally recognized reputation for creativity and quality.
In addition to receiving the American Institute of Architects Architecture Firm Award, ZGF has been honored with more than 550 local, regional, and national design awards, including five Laboratory of the Year awards from R&D Magazine, seven Modern Healthcare awards, three Federal Design Achievement Awards, the Presidential Design Award, and Arch50’s 2016 firm of the year.
ZGF's design philosophy is centered on the premise that design excellence should be reflected in each and every aspect of a building—its fit with the community, its function and relationship to its users, its building systems, and its cost. Their diverse design portfolio ranges from corporate, mixed-use, healthcare and wellness, research, and higher education to residential, sport and recreation, and transit, as well as campus and urban planning.
