about place

place is an architectural practice that focuses on the creation of bespoke buildings for particular clients. We make buildings with imagination, skill and care that respond to the particular context be it economic, physical, environmental, legislative or cultural.

Our clients include local, regional and national organisations from the public, commercial and charitable sectors as well as families and private individuals.

Our portfolio of projects covers new build, repurposing, restoration and reordering of a wide range of building types including: one off homes, theatres and music venues, art galleries, specialist teaching spaces, spaces for worship, religious houses and care facilities. We undertake projects ranging from £75k to £5m.

Based in Dartmouth, Devon, we work throughout south England offering a full range of architectural services including: brief development, building design, approvals applications, client advise and reporting, project team creation and leadership, contract administration and project management.

place is run by Paul Jenkins and Qiao Feng. Between us we have over 50 years of UK and international experience as architects and consultants. We are both registered architects and are personally involved in the projects place takes on from inception to completion.

We endeavour to make places our clients are proud of.
