About Our Studio

Collective Architecture + Design Inc. is an architecture studio based in St. John’s, Newfoundland that specializes in custom modern design. The studio was founded by Kelvin Nyathi and Shanna Nyathi, who share a passion for connecting people with good design.

Whether it’s a new home, cabin/vacation home, renovation or small commercial building, we can help. Most of us spend the majority of our waking and sleeping hours in shelter. A well designed space provides comfort, good health, safety and enjoyment. At Collective, we get it right the first time by asking all the important questions upfront to really know our clients before we design for them.

We go beyond just basic design, we create spaces that capture the spirit and aspirations of our clients. We also understand that managing one’s own construction project can be a challenging process; so we manage construction projects for our clients to give them peace of mind.

Our services include: Needs Assessment and Programming, Project Budgeting, Schematic and Detailed Design, Interior Space Planning, Construction Documentation, Construction Administration and Project Management.
