The Collaborative

The  Col lab  orat  ive

The Collaborative is an architecture, design and planning firm with offices in Ann Arbor, Columbus and Toledo. We exist to create alongside our clients, designing environments that capture their unique spirit.

Client Testimonial

We have been particularly impressed by their innovative, aesthetically pleasing, yet cost considerate designed that has maintained the integrity of our campus style, matching stylistic details and incorporating a modern look and appeal in these designs. Their attention to detail and consistent work from the initial design to completion of the project set them apart from their peers.

— Alan Gatlin, Senior VP and Chief Operating Officer, Alma College

The Collaborative represents both who we are and the way we function. As a group of architects, landscape architects, interior designers, and planners, we support an interactive design process.

We share the conviction that problem solving and design excellence are the products of many people, in different disciplines, working together with the client. We believe teamwork is an attitude, and a willingness to share in the creative process.

Client Testimonial

From the initial proposal, The Collaborative has not only had our best interests at the forefront, but inspired us to think innovatively, provided us with multiple opportunities to see and learn from other projects, and worked collaboratively with a wide range of stakeholders to ensure multiple perspectives were included in the design.
