Our company

Intimate local knowledge of a place’s vision and its people, whilst big on international reputation, Place Design Group has a unique balance of planning and design to deliver exceptional outcomes.

Our teams across Australia, China and South East Asia are hand-picked, carefully curated with industry leaders, up and comers, quiet achievers and award-winning strategists and creators.  By celebrating the individuality of our people, we form successful and thriving environments that breed diversity of thought, innovative solutions, and future based thinking.

Through our work, we have become trusted advisors across Landscape Architecture, Urban Design, Development Approvals, Strategic Planning, Community Engagement, and Strategic Communications. And, it all starts with matching the right mix of individuals to the project.  This is what creates a powerful connection of people to place, which lies at the heart of successful planning and design.

Our collaborative ethos allows us to partner with industry’s best. These local, national and international industry relationships afford us the ability to achieve meaningful connections.  This combined with applied research and innovative thinking, ensures our project teams have real depth, broadening our ability to deliver a wider range of projects relative to our core work.

And, whilst we may be professional consultants, we are also people and place users too. We don’t separate ourselves from this, we embrace it – to inform the delivery of true places for people, and create better futures as a result.

We practice true interdisciplinary design to achieve outcomes that enhance the lives of those who live, play and work within the places and spaces we create.
