Founded in 2001, space2place is a nationally recognized design studio of Landscape Architects, Urban Designers and Ecologists, with a strong network of associated professionals. Our work ranges across a multitude of scales and typologies, including: public parks and playscapes, streetscapes and greenways, green infrastructure, private residences and master plan strategies. We have developed an expertise navigating complex and challenging situations to create places that integrate with their site and surroundings.
As our name suggests, we deliver high value by transforming generic spaces into site-specific, memorable places that celebrate their unique natural and cultural qualities.
We take an integrated approach to help organizations create ecologically-sustainable and experientially-rich places. We bring together the practical and the imaginative to realize projects that enhance meaningful connections between people and their environments.
