Since 2008, we’ve been creating custom-fit urban environments.

Placetailor is a Design + Build studio committed to creating balanced and beautiful building systems. We push the boundaries of design and construction in pursuit of design excellence. If you think we might prove useful, then please don’t hesitate to call. We look forward to working with you soon.

What's a Placetailor-made environment feel like?


Beautifully efficient.

There’s a certain kind of magic in a place where everything fits just right. Where a well placed window captures the sun’s energy to heat a house. Or where a ventilator streams fresh winter air into a room without bringing in the winter temperature. All this becomes particularly apparent when we design and build to the Passivhaus standard.


Fits like a well-tailored suit.

Placetailor-made projects grow out of a personalized and focused process. We try to work on one major project at a time so our attention is seldom divided. We believe our process results in better fitting environments that improve our clients’ lives.


Like you.

We love our city’s neighborhoods. We make a point of stretching beyond our paid call of duty to improve the communities we live and work in. Like you, we appreciate an honest day’s work, believe that good design can make a difference, and think we’re kinda’ special. Come to think of it, we have quite a bit in common.

Curious? Details coming soon...
