Our collaborative approach combines landscape architecture, urban design, planning, and environmental graphics to create fully envisioned, outdoor environments.
PLACE Workshop, located in beautiful Cincinnati, Ohio, is a landscape architecture firm that specializes in designing outdoor environments. We launched in response to the need for a comprehensive, design-first approach to landscape architecture, design and urban planning.
We design spaces that reside outside built structures, balancing our focus between the physical and functional aspects of a place and the intangible, sensory experience these environments evoke. Each project balances considerations of spatial form, color, functionality, lighting, atmosphere and sustainability.
