Zan Stewart

Associate Principal, Landscape Architecture, Atlanta

Zan creates imaginative, implementable designs that perform as they inspire thought. In his twelve years at Perkins and Will, he has completed transformational projects at a range of scales, from intimate gardens to expansive campuses and public spaces. On every project he balances a strong design vision with refined functional details.

Wielding the varied skill set of a designer who has spent his career leading landscape architecture on multidisciplinary teams, Zan dives into the analysis and creative problem solving on any given project with precision. As a practice leader, he aims to draw the best ideas out of his team, then guide them in developing the one that best solves the complex challenges embedded in each site. His consistent portfolio of artfully crafted, sustainable landscapes is a testament to his leadership and an ability to elevate his clients’ needs into captivating spaces.

Creating an indoor/outdoor experience, Zan's intent for the renovation of the rooftop transforms the way employees work at Newell Brands Atlanta.
