Designing Better Futures

We create places that bring cultures to life.

Who We Are

At KZF Design, we help our clients design better futures. Our team of more than 75 architects, engineers, interior designers, landscape architects and planners have created landmarks across the country and around the world.

We’ve built our reputation on thoughtful, award-winning designs and unparalleled technical proficiency in both the public and private sectors, with specific expertise in commercial, workplace, education, community infrastructure, healthcare, industrial, government and public safety projects.

As one of the Midwest’s premier design firms, we pride ourselves on fostering an internal culture of continuous improvement and reinvention. This translates to our clients through strong relationships, creativity and independent thinking — factors that have made us a leader in providing value-based design for more than 65 years.

What We Do

residential apartment building lobby with person working

We know well-designed places say a lot about the business, manufacturer, school, cultural institution or city behind them. They communicate not just who you are but where you want to be. Our professionals can take you there.

We create places that increase productivity. Spark creativity. Improve access. Promote efficiency. And inspire learning. We design places that transform organizations, workforces and communities for the future.

We’ll act as your strategic partner, taking the time to understand how you work and what your organization would like to do better. And we’ll design around both your individual needs and your future goals.
