Urban Architecture & Hospitality

Urban Architecture Studio

With an urban residential portfolio totaling 35 million square feet, Ziegler Cooper is reshaping the urban landscape toward denser, more inviting, and more walkable communities. The firm has provided design services to recognized leaders in the multi-family industry including Gables Residential, The Hanover Company, Hines, Camden Property Trust, General Investment & Development Companies, Greystar, and Trammell Crow.


Our clients repeatedly rely on us to design well appointed, amenity rich, mid-rise, and high-rise projects that create a distinctive sense of place. Our designs attract everyone, from Empty-Nesters looking for more simplified active living to Gen Y and Millennials seeking the “live, work, play” destination urban lifestyle.


Through research-based design we benchmark urban residential products in the marketplace, research market trends, analyze demographic and US Census data and study urban patterns in both domestic and international cities to provide design solutions that lend our clients a competitive edge. As recognized thought leaders, we share our insights through writing and speaking on the subjects of urbanism, density, and micro-villages, which contribute to the sustainable growth model of our cities and enrich our quality of life.
