Thriven Design was founded on the deep-rooted belief that design changes the way people live, work, and interact with their built environment for the better.

We are a 70-person multidisciplinary firm driven to serve.

Thriven Design provides a collaborative client experience built on communication, respect, and appreciation for what is possible when four integrated disciplines work together:

Architecture is the core discipline of Thriven Design, the discipline under which the firm was founded in 1971. Thriven Design has 23 licensed architects on staff, which ranked us as the fifth largest architecture firm in New Jersey in 2022, according to NJ Biz. We design multifamily housing, student housing, market-rate housing, commercial spaces, and more.

Thriven Design’s engineering studio has one of the deepest pools of expertise in our firm, led by two principals with a combined 76 years of industry experience. The engineering studio develops solutions for both new construction and rehabilitation projects, and is driven to create cost-effective, energy-efficient building systems that provide healthy environments for occupants for years to come.

The Thriven Design planning process is known for its close partnership with residents, stakeholders and neighborhood groups, and its emphasis on whole-community revitalization: housing, economy, social, and cultural resources. Our firm has two licensed planners on staff, and extensive experience with grantmaking applications.

Thriven Design's team of interior design professionals goes above and beyond every day, whether working as part of a multidisciplinary firm-wide project, or delivering exceptional solutions for an independent standalone interior design client. Our interior design ensures the accessibility, efficiency, and longevity of a space, and improves quality of life.
