Taylor Franz

A designer and project manager at Krueck Sexton Partners, Taylor has an aptitude for understanding and celebrating a client’s values while incorporating thoughtful details that distinguish good design. She is an ambitious problem-solver and loves how architecture can improve the quality of life, no matter the scale. After graduating from the University of Michigan with a degree in architecture, Taylor worked in Washington, D.C. for six years where she completed projects for nationally recognized corporations and developers on the east and west coasts. Since joining Krueck Sexton Partners in 2020, she has worked on the modernization of the Silvio J. Mollo Federal Building in New York City for the General Service Administration, as well as re-envisioned amenity spaces in Washington, D.C. for Tishman Speyer.

Taylor also leads the Empowerment Initiative in the office, which focuses on employee growth and development.

“KSP is a studio full of diverse talent and sincere ambition. The office dedicates itself to design excellence, and our commitment to innovation within architecture and our clients’ industries is exciting. I look forward to continuing the creative vision of our studio.”
