Making Place Studio wants to imagine and build space that feels damn good on the skin and speaks to you in a meaningful way. We believe in a place-based design approach that combines the cues of a particular site, client program requirements and leading design ability because this makes sense. If we are able to save a few gallons of water or inspire a child to smell a flower for the first time then we sleep good at night.

Our name “Making Place” is a two-fold concept:

Part 1: Much of what landscape architects/designers do is taking an empty lot and making it into some incredible “place” for users to enjoy.


Part 2: Utilizing a craftsman mind or hands for “making” creative objects and design concepts in our own studio or in collaboration with other artisans.
