Collective Office takes on timber frame construction


Collective Office continues to study the possibilities of timber frame in high rise design for the South Loop Masterplan project. The South Loop Masterplan project proposes large scale infill development from a strategic progamming perspective for the vacant sites that still exist in the South Loop. We have the position that these sites should be thought of together, and not as individuals, in order to add the best mix possible of residential, commerical and hospitality to the existing area. This neighborhood is very unique with all the large available parcels of land. 

Timber Lane Residence Featured in Crain’s


The Timber Lane Residence was designed as a modern minimilist iteration to the popular southwest Michigan cottage. We've designed an efficient 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom house, with the focus on how a young family would use the residence on this corner lot. The material choices are common to residential vernacular in the area, used in a thoughtful way to distinguish this home in the neighborhood.
