Practice Profile



The SC COLLECTIVE is an innovatively structured architecture and design firm providing multi-disciplinary design services based in both the US and the UK. Integrating research, in-depth expertise, knowledge and skills essential for business success, we design for optimal human support and experience. The SC COLLECTIVE in strategic alliance with Prudon & Partners and SC COLLECTIVE DESIGN ACADEMY works to provide creative, smart and comprehensive solutions always within budget and on time. An award winning and well recognized firm started in the US in 2002. In 2009 the firm expanded internationally opening its first UK offices. With a collaborative, research and people focused approach to supporting client and business success, the firm’s portfolio reflects project diversity to include corporate, governmental, institutional, hospitality and education typologies, along with core strength in architectural preservation/restoration and product design.

For each project we broadly research the industry, related business environment and company culture, including the latest social/environmental thinking and technological developments. We incorporate our findings for the most creative, functional solutions while delivering intelligent, meaningful and responsive projects to our clients. With comprehensive input, we help to define and write the design brief in order to encompass the fullest breadth and depth of the needs and wants. By conducting the necessary organizational and real estate fitness studies, formulating the best defined strategies, we conceptualize, plan and design to optimize the potential of people and facilities in alignment with the client vision and needs.

Each of our projects is led by design and management leaders, who remain the point of contact from the beginning to the end of the project. This ensures a consistent, practical and intuitive understanding of the overall project goals, needs, scale and complexity throughout the process. At all times we seek to bring the desired and necessary specialty of skill and expertise required specific to our client, their institution or organization and their respective identities. Our solutions inspire, transform and re-energize functions and places, resulting in thoughtful, socially engaged environments that foster participation and pride of place for users and the client.

The SC COLLECTIVE operates like film studios by bringing to each project a cast of talented design professionals and a network of related experts, specifically tailored to the needs of our client. Each design team works on one project at a time in order to conceive and deliver solutions, distinctly suited to the organization and its identity. Operating in areas beyond the traditional boundaries of design business, we structure and participate in collaborative expert groups of individuals who come together for cross-disciplinary thinking and to address a future-forward vision and needs. We envision and achieve extraordinary possibilities from within the ordinary. This is exemplified by our firm’s reputation, projects and receipt of many discipline and industry awards and accolades.
