PLACE Architects is an award winning Seattle design studio dedicated to shaping environments that celebrate and nurture the way people work, play and live in them. Collaborators by nature, we work side by side with our clients to develop ideas and dreams into new built places. Our expertise spans a wide range of project types from adventurous modern housing to public recreation, arts and cultural centers, and neighborhood retail, cafes and clubs. Commercial projects, office buildings, and technical work such as healthcare and technology projects make up the balance of our work. The focus is always on weaving community, enhancing constructed and natural ecology with every project. We have a deep interest in the urban realm, recognizing the critical relationships between interior and exterior; building, city, and region. Every new building creates new outdoor space. Those spaces are essential components of our built environment, and our built environment is, in turn, part of the ecology of the region in which it exists.
