Studio

PLACE is a team of creative design professionals committed to innovative architecture and urban design.

Approach

We believe good communities make a real difference in people’s lives and at its core architecture is designing social spaces that create community.

We strive to create work that is modern (by responding to contemporary social and technological conditions), sustainable (by reducing our ecological footprint while improving quality of life) and is grounded in the concept of place-making.

Work

Our diverse portfolio includes residential, commercial and institutional projects. We focus on multi-family and mixed-use urban infill projects.

In addition to our architectural work, we provide urban design services including site plan studies for individual parcels and master plans for larger mixed-use districts. PLACE currently has 20 active projects representing over $200 million in construction value.

Culture

Tim Clemmons, Jenny Miers and Greg Glenn are the three principals of PLACE.

Tim is executive director and establishes the firm’s strategic and design direction. The office is divided into two design studios with Jenny and Greg as studio directors. We have a staff of 12 including five licensed architects and one licensed interior designer. Located in a significant mid-century building in downtown St. Petersburg, our studio space encourages interaction between employees and reflects our philosophy of design as a collaborative enterprise.
