Located in Princeton, New Jersey, JZA+D was founded in 2006 by principal Joshua Zinder. The practice functions as a multidisciplinary team that shares sustainable and contemporary design aesthetics and aspirations. The collective educational and professional experience of our staff spans over 125 years, across borders, and embraces architecture, interiors, product, furniture, and graphic design. With a stimulating office atmosphere, the staff is encouraged and inspired to be cooperative partners, good listeners and creative problem-solvers.
JZA+D has won numerous design awards and its work has been seen in publications around the world. The staff actively participates in trade and professional organizations such as AIA, NCARB, USGBC, IOREBA, and ACSA, along with business organizations such as Chambers’ of Commerce and networking groups such as Gotham Networking. In addition, over half of our architectural staff is LEED accredited.
JZA+D is committed to a collaborative process that involves, educates and develops a strong and comfortable working relationship with clients, contractors, and builders. Open communication is vital to efficiently execute the design vision. With a keen sense of proportion and style, sensitivity to context and location, and an understanding of sustainability, JZA+D approaches each project with in depth discussions of design possibilities without disregarding the client’s budget constraints. From the get-go, we present computer design concepts that allow clients to visualize the physical form and space. In addition we pride ourselves on understanding the process of transforming our designs into the built environment.
JZA+D believes good design is sustainable design. JZA+D encourages green design techniques and products into every project for the benefit and welfare of our clients.
