KZF announces Community Design Studio and adds Landscape Architecture Services

Enhancing KZF Design’s commitment to the clients and markets we serve, our Cincinnati-based architecture, engineering, interior design, and urban planning firm is introducing an expanded array of services, along with updates and realignments to our internal structure.

KZF Design is delighted to announce we have recently refined our Transportation & Infrastructure team to more comprehensively reflect the diverse range of services our team offers, all aimed at aligning with a community’s needs, objectives, and vision. As a result, we are excited to reframe this department as our Community Design Studio. This team will focus on projects such as master planning, urban design and redevelopment, parks and waterfronts, bike and pedestrian paths, streetscapes, gateways, and plazas, corridor and transportation planning, infrastructure engineering, community engagement, and more.
