the design COLLECTIVE

the design COLLECTIVE was founded on the simple belief that no single person is responsible for the success of a project. There is a COLLECTIVE of people responsible: client, architect, consultant, contractor. All of these people work together in a cohesive way to ensure the desired outcome.  At “the DC”, this belief carries through the delivery process from principal to intern. It is the COLLECTIVE that ensures the success of the project.

The design COLLECTIVE is a Seattle-based architectural and interior design services firm, founded in 2007 by James Blissett. With regional, national, and international clientele, our design specialties include cinema, retail and restaurant environments, and residential, hospitality, and mixed-use architecture. Our work has received awards and industry recognition for outstanding design, including: sustainable development practices, innovative housing types, and leading edge entertainment destinations.
