It all started in 1987.

Humble beginnings

Frustrated with the bureaucracy and inefficiencies of working in a large firm, Michael (Mickey) Kostow finally made a decision to start something new. On May 1, 1987, a new kind of firm was born. The firm grew and Jane Greenwood joined the company in 1998 as principal.


Over the years, the partners found themselves in a successful firm that was growing and expanding, but they yearned for the closer interaction of the startup years. At the same time, they welcomed truly challenging projects for their ability to transform daily experience on a large scale.

In our prime

In effort to bring the firm back to its roots, Jane and Mickey eventually focused on building a small, honest team that truly cares about their craft but can execute large and complex projects with ease. Today, Kostow Greenwood Architects is a boutique firm that focuses on highly functional designs focused around people.
