ZGF Architects LLP is a design firm with a focus on architecture, interior design, and urban design. Founded in Portland, Oregon, with a mission to strive for design excellence, stewardship of our natural and built environment, and exceptional client service, the firm has grown to include offices in Seattle, Los Angeles, Washington, DC, New York, and ZGF Cotter Architects Inc. in Vancouver, BC. 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. The firm’s design portfolio is intentionally diverse, ranging from transportation terminals, commercial office and mixed-use developments to corporate campuses, healthcare and research buildings, academic facilities, libraries, and museums. In addition to receiving more than 770 local, regional, and national design awards, ZGF was honored with the American Institute of Architects’ highest honor, the Architecture Firm Award, recognized for “creatively transforming client needs and aspirations into elegant, inventive architectural form, and establishing a standard of excellence and expectation of quality to which other firms aspire.”
