Zachary Isaacs

AIA-NCARB, Staff Architect

  My architectural journey begins at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana where I received my bachelor’s and master’s degrees of architecture in 2016 and 2018, respectively. After graduation, I worked in offices in Indiana and Kentucky, before moving to Florida and beginning work at ADG in August of 2021. I studied rigorously and in December 2023 I became a licensed architect in the state of Florida. I continue to apply myself to the understanding of architecture, and hope to provide a positive impact on Southwest Florida and my community.

Frederick J. Koenig

AIA, NCARB
Director of Architecture and Operations


My journey began over thirty years ago as a part-time drafter for General Electric during high school. I started my college education at the State University of New York at Delhi, earning my first degree, then transferred to Clemson University, where I graduated in 1996. After over twenty years in New York, where I earned my Architect's license, I moved to Florida in 2016. I am currently a licensed Architect in Florida and NCARB certified.

When I'm not working, I love taking trips with my wife and indulging in woodworking.

At happy hour, you’d find me with a Coke Zero, as I don't usually drink during work events.

I described as sarcastic, quiet, and an over-thinker.

I became an architect because my mom noticed my knack for math and drawing.

On my bucket list is an Alaskan cruise or visiting the Pyramids in Egypt.

I also have a hidden talent for tattooing, though I still need a lot more practice.
