Profile

Collective Architecture was established to pursue themes of participation and sustainability in architecture. Our output is highly varied, ranging from intimate community installations to large scale urban regeneration. Over the past 21 years we have successfully delivered a series of important projects spread across the UK. Working internationally with private and public clients, we consider all projects unique, regardless of size or budget, and capable of providing a source of identity for place, organisation or individual. The company is owned by an employee run trust established to reward and further involve staff in practice development. Ownership by all brings care and commitment to every aspect of our work. Our ethos encourages individuals to express themselves and research issues which are of relevance to both their work and to the wider society. This has resulted in our architects developing specialist knowledge, accreditation and qualifications, to achieve a range of crucial skills. We share that information and encourage discussion through events, forum, publications and we are active within a number of important institutions. Many of our staff teach, lecture and guest at schools of architecture in the UK and throughout Europe.

We consider each project special and develop an approach to suit that project’s need and potential. From the outset we explore all the elements of architecture through collaborative workshops and the use of three dimensional media. This leads to well crafted buildings that contribute to happiness and wellbeing over a prolonged period of time. Our work has been widely published and exhibited in Glasgow, London, Barcelona, the Chicago Athenaeum and the Venice Biennale. We have also been recognised with a variety of national and international awards.
