Green Buildings

Bridging the space between in and out.

There is a major gap in how we currently design buildings. We are not only missing vital voices but also critical information relating us back to our endemic habitats and history. Zone Design Group offers affordable design services that advocate for communities, as well as for the planet through a deeply sustainable design approach that reintegrates nature into our built spaces.

We offer two different primary services ;

  •  A private client service which makes access to sustainable architecture available to all, and

  • A business-to-business consulting service which allows architecture firms to quickly onboard community outreach and sustainable design into their practice.

Satisfied Customers

I commissioned a piece of artwork after doing some initial design concept work for my new office and Zone exceeded my expectations by surprising me with something I didn’t even know I wanted. Kaeli put together something that I am proud to show everyone; my employees, my family, even the CEO of Ford.

Kaeli’s work on the Place Initiative reinvented our approach to discovery in the early project phases. Her work is a tremendous resource for our project teams.


I’m always excited to work with Kaeli. She brings a lot of enthusiasm and her expertise on sustainability/ regenerative design are essential assets to any team.

When it was time to turn my basement into a separate living situation, I was honestly overwhelmed by a big open space. I had zero ideas on how to lay anything out and the smartest way to do it. Kaeli spent so much time and care with me to make decisions for the space that I’m still blown away. . .  I literally tell all my friends to reach out to her now.
