We have designed award-winning homes, offices, restaurants, and special needs buildings throughout New Jersey, as well as the Hamptons, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Vermont. We are proud to have been consistently recognized by independent websites and journals as delivering a blend of the highest quality design, technology, and client service.
The firm’s design approach is rooted in the belief that independent of the aesthetic style our clients prefer, natural light, durable materials, and careful attention to how a building inter-relates to its’ exterior site conditions are universally important. The firm strives to develop trust and long-term relationships with all of our clients, as well as the builders that help turn our visions into reality. Z+ Architects’ reputation for designing lasting buildings across all aesthetic styles is anchored by a dedication to careful attention to detail, and moreover, spaces that flow and are highly-livable. Z+ Architects-designed buildings, whether traditional or modern, all possess a shared quality of enduring character and detail that only continues to enhance over time.
Z+ Architects takes pride in its long-standing relationships with repeat clients, high-quality builders, tradespeople, craftsmen, and supporting industries. This, in tandem with its sister company, Z+ Interiors, allows for seamless, collaborative, and ego-free one-stop shopping. Thi results in superlative, coordinated design, drawings, and an easier, more enjoyable process for our clients.
Z+ ARCHITECTS HAS BEEN PROVIDING CLIENTS WITH HIGH-QUALITY, CUSTOM RESIDENTIAL, COMMERCIAL, AND SPECIAL NEEDS ARCHITECTURAL SERVICES SINCE 2001.
"We do the heavy lifting, so you can continue to do the things you do that have allowed you to be successful."

Our process incorporates a variety of techniques that range from classic hand drawings to next-generation virtual 3D technology. Yet without question, we have a singular component that is paramount to a single “technique”. Simply put, we strive for our process to make our clients’ role as simple and enjoyable as possible. This is accomplished by presenting meaningful alternatives to you in a clear fashion, and using our extensive expertise and experience when guiding you through your decision-making process.
"Our philosophy on technology is simply a matter of the right tool for the right job, and understanding when to use each."
Z+ Architects still can draw with a deft hand, as well as wow with the most cutting edge of technology. We incorporate the hand sketches of how architecture has classically been delivered, seamlessly alongside the latest software and visualization techniques emerging today. Our approach acknowledges that each phase in the design process has the most-appropriate tool or technique to help deliver information clearly to our clients. It is no more appropriate to employ a computer’s hyper-accuracy when trying to loosely explore spatial relationships and adjacencies than it is to provide a limited, two-dimensional sketch when a 3D rendered perspective can more clearly help our clients understand building shape, form, and material.
We are proud to place our clients’ needs first when approaching technology, and artfully bridge the gap between hand drawings and emerging 3D technologies. We aren’t intimidated by the pressure to identify or choose between the two; rather, we welcome the breadth of features that each “school’ provides that the other simply can’t. Nearly a decade ago, we invested in state-of-the-art 3D modeling software that has continued to develop and revolutionize how architecture is delivered. Since then, we have been fully committed and versed in applying these ever-evolving, cutting-edge software systems to all of our projects, no matter the size or complexity.
