Our Story

COMMUNITY. A DESIGN COLLECTIVE was founded with the simple belief that design is not just an act of building, it is the creation of a vital destination. We see design as a strategic approach in achieving a unique expectation. It’s about discovering the needs and aspirations of our Clients. A belief that creating sustainable spaces is rooted in intelligent design and planning and that the most creative spaces grow organically from the relationships we build with our diverse base of Clients. Simply put, we build spaces that foster inspiration. Places where people feel good. That's COMMUNITY.

Our Craft


From the initial stages of project planning, design development and permitting, our design approach recognizes Urban Infill, Reuse and Redevelopment as important strategies for cultivating enriched, residential, multi family and commercial experiences. Our approach to design and management attracts interest from people who want to create spaces that excites, challenges and delivers. With over twenty years of experience in Design, Project Management and Construction Observation, we view each project as an opportunity to deliver a unique and distinct product tailored to your specific programming needs.
