PLACE designers is the combination of two recognized and established Central Texas design firms. LZT Architects is identified with innovative and sensitive boutique architectural design projects with a bent toward the social services.  BWM Group, established in 1998, provided a strong history in planning and a unique ability to support clients from conception through construction, both in land development and building design.  Completely complimentary, the two firms offer the full breadth of experience to projects both public and private.  Unique to PLACE designers is the increased collaboration, efficiency, and accountability of combining Planning, Landscape Architecture, Architecture, Consulting, and Engineering in one firm.


Located in historic downtown Round Rock, Texas, PLACE designers is an award-winning firm specializing in master planning, landscape compliance plans, site development plans, urban and mixed use, and civic development. PLACE designers’ work has received multiple planning, landscape and architecture design awards for projects throughout central Texas. The firm is dedicated to creative, functional, and successful planning and design that enhances the environment, builds value for projects and is responsive to regional and cultural issues. PLACE designers has completed significant projects of varying scope and scale from parks and recreation, open space planning, hike and bike trails, commercial developments, educational facilities, day cares, manufacturing facilities, multi-family, multi-use shopping centers, urban plazas, and civic facilities to new community planning. PLACE designers prides itself on being both innovative and responsive to programmatic needs and budgets. In doing so, PLACE designers continues to contribute to their clients’ success and the quality of peoples’ lives that the work touches. As true architects of the land, PLACE designers transforms places by connecting the inside to the outside.


PLACE designers takes pride in architecture and landscape design which serves the needs of the community.  We understand the need for maintenance-friendly, budget-driven design and strive to accomplish both without sacrificing quality and the community’s vision for the project. In addition to our unique qualifications we can offer the following:


Multi-Disciplinary. PLACE designers work cohesively to provide outstanding architecture, planning, engineering and landscape architectural services. Our cross disciplinary perspective not only saves our customers time and money while producing quality results, but also brings a level of creative design diversity for all projects, including single discipline projects.


Experience. For the past 20 years PLACE designers revenue has been derived primarily from projects in the Central Texas area. LZT Architecture’s rich history dates back to 1982 when the firm relocated to Austin. Our team is intimate with the codes, regulations and standards of The City of Austin and its surrounding municipalities. Our location and community involvement also provides the team with a working knowledge of the City’s culture and vernacular.


Location. Located in historic downtown Round Rock we are within 20 to 40 minutes to The City of Austin offices. If it is in the Central Texas area our abbreviated travel time enables PLACE designers the ability to provide a cost-effective response at the drop of a hat. In addition to our professional drive to create great places, as members of the community we aspire to provide our families with an even greater place to live and flourish.


Enthusiasm and Respect. We approach each project with a high level of enthusiasm and respect for its individuality and character. We know how to balance aesthetic features and function to create the best environment for staff, citizens and visitors.
