PLACE Alliance designs the beautiful, the distinct, and the unique. We help you create great places and we do so in partnership with you throughout the design process. We transform your ideas into action and your vision into exceptional and enduring places.
PLACE Alliance is not a conventional architecture or planning firm. We are a multi-firm design coalition dedicated to the craft of placemaking. Our creative community was founded in 2009 and brings together a team of experts and design specialists who provide comprehensive solutions for diverse environments across the world. Uniting architects, environmental designers, planners, and landscape architects from the United States and abroad, our workforce is assembled specifically for each new opportunity, and can be scaled or rapidly reconfigured according to the evolving needs of your project.
Communication is essential to successful design and we believe the richest ideas are discovered through a cooperative, charrette-based approach that builds consensus between all participants. As the design coordinator for your project, PLACE Alliance effortlessly orchestrates each of the critical design disciplines, combining technical knowledge and practical expertise with our proven ability to convey complex solutions clearly to many different audiences. Through a series of interactive workshops, we distill the challenging cultural, ecological, and architectural features of each place into a comprehensive development strategy. We are able to provide you with effective results quickly, engaging in a critical dialogue that enables us to discover together, through drawings and discussion, the potential inherent in each place.
Our PLACE Alliance community revolves around a boutique, Florida-based design studio with global experience. In partnership with the strategic allies within our network, however, we can engage additional experts from across the world to provide highly specialized design support both rapidly and affordably within a seamless, collaborative landscape. Our ability to calibrate the size and capability of each of our design teams – and to immediately adjust our workflow accordingly - ensures that world-class specialists with the appropriate design expertise are working on your project only at the moment they are needed most. PLACE Alliance is, as a result, a highly streamlined and responsive entity with the full reach and collective experience of a much larger firm, but without its cumbersome operational burden. It is our efficiency, agility, and versatility that is fundamental to the structure of our business and the foundation of our success.
