Community Placemaking

Whether leading the restoration of a landmark setting or the design of a bold new building, we focus on the importance of placemaking throughout the life of a project. Our work centers on creating and enriching environments that speak to the human spirit—offering a sense of community, connections, and purpose.

Our work addresses the many parameters of developing transformative places, from environmental stewardship to economic vitality. We carefully consider scale, whether preserving rural environments or revitalizing urban districts. In collaboration with clients, stakeholders, and communities, we seek to understand priorities and aspirations as well as opportunities for shared educational and cultural experiences. Our approach is inspired by both the past and the future, recalling the heritage of a setting while engendering a new sense of identity and pride of place.
