Zack Griffin, AIA
Zack began his work with Jonathan Marvel in 2009 and has contributed to a wide range of projects, many with a focus on the performing arts and theatrical spaces. He is a licensed architect in the State of New York with experience in architectural design, project management and construction. Zack’s projects have been widespread, with work in New York City, NY State, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Maine.
After receiving his Master of Architecture from Parsons, The New School, Zack’s early work with Jonathan Marvel involved various projects for the SandRidge Energy Corporate Headquarters in Oklahoma City. The projects include a multi-block urban corporate campus, historic façade renovation of existing landmark structures on site, a site shade canopy, and envelope and façade design for several buildings and the design of the main corporate lobby. Zack was project lead in coordinating the design, documentation, and project management for the TheatreSquared Redevelopment Project in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Zack also served as the project architect on the historic renovation and conversion of a nineteenth century Tobacco Warehouse in Brooklyn Bridge Park into an avant-garde performance space for St. Ann’s Warehouse.
In addition to his commercial and theatrical expertise, Zack’s experience also includes coworking, retail, multi-family residential, and hospitality. As a designer he has been privileged with the opportunity to engage the built environment in a manner that extends the impact of projects beyond the building footprint to benefit the greater communities they are a part of. His work as a project manager has involved balancing complex project planning, multiple stakeholder management, and public review processes at the city, state and national levels while maintaining design excellence, inclusivity, and client satisfaction. Most recently at Marvel, Zack has had a leadership role in the design and documentation of several high-profile mixed-use projects including the adaptive reuse of the Rainbow Centre Mall in Niagara Falls, NY and a luxury mixed-use hotel on Portland Maine’s historic waterfront.
