Consultant Team

Design Collective

Design Collective is a multi-disciplinary design firm specializing in the disciplines of architecture, urban design and planning, landscape architecture, interiors, and environmental graphics.

Our planning and urban design practice is focused on downtown districts, station area plans and TOD, urban and neighborhood revitalization, aging commercial corridors, and urban mixed-use developments. Working with both public sector agencies and private developers, we aspire to create memorable and inviting places through a meaningful and collaborative design approach. 

Our team’s planners and urban designers are adept at developing creative, sustainability-focused, and forward-thinking planning and design solutions that are equally mindful of market, economic, developer, DEI, and community and stakeholder considerations. 

With a principled approach and creative, yet implementable design solutions, many of our planning projects have won prestigious awards from ULI, CNU, AIA, APA, and numerous other national and international organizations.
