Established in 1973, the firm remains committed to design excellence while maintaining an emphasis on sustainable design. Since its inception, Place Architecture has spent decades researching and redefining the collaboration process to create architechture that represents the individuality of its clients. This process includes experience with a diverse set of clientele, from residential and commercial clients to local and state governments. Despite the different needs of each client set, Place has endeavored to maintain the integrity of aesthetics of each project, while at the same time maximizing utility and reducing environmental impact.

From its first office in Montana to its current home in San Diego, Place's ongoing commitment is to transform its client's dreams and ideas into award winning architecture.



"We believe our role is the art of connecting the client's identity with their surroudings through architecture."
