Architecture is the result of client desires and site forces, with each project requiring a tactical design response in order to create a place of greater consequence. It is a negotiation between found and given parameters—a collaboration of pragmatic and aesthetic ambitions.
With each new design proposition, PLACE endeavors to synchronize the aspects of individuality and community, program and context, scale, proportion, light, and materials.
PLACE is driven by a poetic pragmatism with a view toward ultimate utility. Each project engenders a sense of graceful minimalism, pushed to the edge, often beyond by creative experimentation, resulting in a sense of restrained opulence.
PLACE continually researches and evolves best practices, embracing advances in sustainable building technologies for a higher standard of coexistence between the built and natural environments.
