planning & public space projects

Payto Architects excells in working with clients to transform outdated and underutilized public spaces into welcoming and active spaces. We work with a variety of materials and techniques to create spaces with the framework to support activity, but the flexibility to remain relevant and adapt to the demands of the users. 

We have worked with the following clients to design dynamic public spaces:


Kent State University - Main Campus


Kent State University - Stark Campus


North Point


Case Western Reserve University


Slavic Village Development Corporation

Payto Architect is comfortable working at an urban design and master planning scale. We have worked with clients to create large scale master plans for coportate and academic campus enviroments. but we have also used this skill on our smaller scale projects to create an end-result that furthers the goals of an existing master plan. We have performed facilities assessments on a campus-wide scale, and completed many site feasibility studies. We feel that these skills help us to design the best possible product that will help to fulfill the long-term goals of the client.
