    “Independant Architects Collective” is better, with collective as the headword.

    I don't understand how you can be a collective (many?) with individuals. Do you all just pay rent to share a common space?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    What is an Italian name of the undertaking?
    - societa', insieme, complesso, cooperativa etc?
    Nevertheless, The Independent Architect/s/ Studio sounds fine to me.

    I think that "team" is very close to "collectivo".
