coG studio creates spaces in
which to live, learn, and play.

Our difference: thoughtful design for a lifespan of play. Play is vital at any stage of life: childhood, adulthood, and parenthood. As a Design Firm, our mission is to satisfy the human need to play while solving the problems in both public and private spaces.

coG Studio is building differently: with a design philosophy best expressed through the words of Digby Wolfe:

Here's to the kids who are different,
The kids with the mischievous streak,
For when they have grown, as history's shown,
It's their difference that makes them unique.

Through building differently, we not only focus on the end product, we value the means to the end. Our process is our play. We engage in research, active listening, and imagining the extraordinary, to deliver a value beyond just a space.


86% of young adults 24-34 live on their own


36% of children 0-5 are read to every day


Playful adults average a 12% longer life than their less playful peers

coG studio is currently active in more than a dozen major US cities, including Detroit, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, Denver, Kansas City, and Philadelphia.
