COZEN Architecture was established in 1994 by Carol Beth Cozen, AIA. The firm has designed and supervised numerous residential, tenant improvement, restaurant and commercial projects in a variety of styles, from traditional to contemporary. Cozen Architecture is always seeking to broaden their experience through new design challenges and projects.


COZEN Architecture takes pride, not only in its quality design, but also in the high level of service it offers. Cozen Architecture is deeply committed to developing and maintaining strong working relationships with clients and partners.


At COZEN Architecture, design begins with the basic premise that each site is individual and must be treated as such. Solutions are not recycled from one project to another. Each project is seen as a new puzzle to be solved.
