We are a collaborative studio working to meet the urgent challenge of creating beautiful architecture that is more responsive to social, cultural and ecological needs.

We are building a team of passionate, talented professionals who are pursuing a transformative vision: beautiful design shaped by a strong connection to place, the highest standards of sustainability, and a commitment to excellence enriched by the collaborative process. We designed our open studio environment to be a healthy, productive, creative workplace where together we can meet the urgent challenge of crafting beautiful, sustainable architecture.

The principles of collaboration and integrated design set the tone for every project at COOKFOX. We engage clients, developers, contractors, engineers, and public stakeholders early on, bringing diverse perspectives into the design process. Throughout every project and in our own workplace, we view open communication and continuous learning as essential investments. We believe inspiration can come from anywhere at any time, so our studio and design process leave room for unexpected insights and spontaneous connections to happen. This enables our architects and designers to engage in the focused, yet inherently playful pursuit of intellectual curiosity that often leads to the most innovative and effective solutions.
