Design Collective West was founded on a love of great places and great spaces. We first met 15 years ago fresh out of grad school, Michele honing her talents as a young architect, and James chasing his “white whale” of a career in the NFL. It soon became apparent that Michele was much more adept at her craft of spectacular design than James was of taking a hit. One tied knot and two kids later, we decided to combine creative forces – bringing together our talents in architecture, interior design, and business.
Curious about our design aesthetic? It rests in our excitement for the spectacular, combined with a dedication to function and simplicity.
How about our project management? You can rely on our clear vision for a project’s viability, efficiency, and overall strategy. We work with clients to give them their dream project, throughout the process and in the final design.
Each of our architecture and interior design projects, from high-end residential to hospitality and commercial spaces, comprises this unique blend of talent and process.
We invite you to peruse our website, share some of our favorite things and enjoy our collection of musings and inspirations. In our portfolio, examine the eclectic mix of living spaces we’ve created – ranging from the totally unique, wildly original and funky, to the classically modern, transitionally chic and timeless.
