Jacob Lange

Principal, Director of Starr Whitehouse Atlanta


Landscape Architect and Atlanta Studio Director Jacob Lange leads Starr Whitehouse’s work in the Southeast, where he focuses on waterfront parks, pedestrian-centered urban districts, and community-focused green infrastructure for public, private, and institutional clients. Under Jacob’s direction, the Atlanta Studio leads the design of a multi-phased parks system along the banks of the Chattahoochee River in Roswell, GA. In Alpharetta, GA, his team is working on a range of projects to transform a historically vehicle-oriented downtown into a green and multi-modal public realm. At Georgia Tech’s campus, Jacob and team are redesigning a memorial garden on behalf of the Institute’s Alumni Association. Previously, Jacob led two of the City of Atlanta’s Green Infrastructure Design Challenge projects, integrating stormwater management with amenity and education to support economic development and environmental advocacy in underserved communities.

Jacob is an active member of the ULI Atlanta Chapter and a graduate of the chapter’s 2020 Center for Leadership program. He has volunteered for Park Pride’s Park Visioning program, he is an annual guest lecturer at Clemson University’s School of Architecture, and he has served as a guest critic at Georgia Tech’s School of Architecture. He remains active on projects in the Northeast, where his recent work includes historic St. Mary’s Park in the Bronx and public open space components for mixed-use developments by The Durst Organization in Queens and Philadelphia.
