Architectural Collaborative LLC (Arcollab) is an architecture firm focused on residential and small-scale commercial projects. We believe that sustainability is at the core of good design. We strive to create inspired spaces and structures that are strongly rooted in their sense of place and grow from their surrounding natural and built environment. Our approach to design is holistic. Every aspect of the project is given careful consideration from the positioning of the home on the site down to the construction detailing and interior design.
Our creative process includes research and experimentation, ongoing client collaboration, and ultimately the thoughtful articulation of light, form, and materials in order to create inspired spaces that maintain a sense of place. From the overall massing of building forms to the careful assembly of construction details, we combine a strong understanding of construction systems, attention to clients’ needs and budget, and an artistic sensibility.
Architects Lori Bork Newcomer, Joe Smith, and Gabe Comstock lead projects within the firm related to their specialized area of practice. However, the office is, at heart, a collaborative studio environment in which ideas from all members of the firm are welcome and open dialogue yields the best creative design solutions. The same approach is brought to our client relationships; we pride ourselves on our communication skills with the client, contractor, consultants, and within the project team as a whole.
