The Principals of ZŌN  Architects have worked together since 1995 and have designed a broad range of project types including:


Each project is unique, the influences of site, program, culture and context provide opportunities of discovery and expression that are unique. In all our work we strive to create buildings that provide more than simple utility, that often subtle but substantial difference that sets a place apart. It is this qualitative difference that many of our clients are drawn to and often the reason they return.

Good design can be defined as “the creative solution to a well defined problem.” The owners and users of a building must be intimately involved in the definition of the design problem. Their needs will guide the designers process toward an appropriate design solution.

 We fully involve our clients in this process. We utilize techniques that rely on client involvement such as questionnaires, interviews, and client/architect work sessions to establish a clear and unambiguous program. We believe that collaboration throughout the design process is crucial to producing a successful project.
