Collective Office


How do you want to live and where would you like to work? Can a different environment motivate people? Do you relate to brands? Do you experience space?


Collective Office was created in 1998 as Idea Atelier in Toronto, Canada. The architectural design and brand strategy practice built residential and commercial projects in Toronto and the surrounding communities. The practice moved to Chicago, IL in 2004, where it has been re-branded Collective Office. We are now building projects in Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin and Canada. 


Collective operates within the needs and scope of each client, tailoring a solution for each project. We analyze our projects across the following array of services:

  • Architecture
  • Interior Architecture
  • Designed Objects
  • Branded Environments
  • Brand Strategy
  • Identity Development
