We are a full-service design, architecture and engineering firm, relentless in our pursuit to encapsulate our clients' 'why' with dynamic environments.

Zimmerman’s design philosophy and integrated approach help you refine your objectives for the future to express your identity and inspiration through architecture.

Approach & Design Philosophy

We create environments that have a positive, lasting impact by combining rich insights about the experience of the people who will use the space, the nuances of our clients’ businesses, and the greater social, cultural and environmental context of our work.

Our design philosophy is rooted in a holistic comprehension of our clients’ unique ‘why,’ hopes and aspirations – the inherent project motivators. Clarifying the intrinsic project drivers and using them as a basis for design is an integral part of our process. Only when you lead with the ‘why’ can you get to powerful design solutions.

We are laser-focused on developing collaborative relationships with our clients, immersing ourselves in your day-to-day operations and achieving high-quality designs to seamlessly bring your ‘why’ to fruition.

Sustainability

We take pride in creating elegant and practical designs that incorporate sustainable elements, creating a harmonious coexistence of individuals, their communities and the built environment. We recognize the importance of resiliency and responsibility in the development of projects at every stage and scale.

Architecture

Intimate market expertise and cross-market application allow our teams to explore functional intersections to yield outcomes with architecture as unique and evolving as your needs.

Interior Design and Environmental Branding

Interpreting client needs and internalizing identity in aesthetics.

Zimmerman’s interiors studio possesses an outstanding knowledge of diverse design styles and aesthetics to capture concepts representative of clients’ specific tastes and criteria.
