In 2000, three friends got together – Kevin Conger, Willett Moss, and Chris Guillard – and founded CMG Landscape Architecture. Today, the office has grown from its three founders to a current staff of 42 led by five principals.


CMG is always looking for and interested in hearing from thoughtful, collaborative, and motivated designers who would like to join our practice. Our mission is simple: to improve communities through design – whether within our own studio, our city (San Francisco), our region (Bay Area), or beyond. If you are interested in joining the conversation, please follow the directions below.
