Featured Reviews for Des Plaines, IL Architects and Building Designers

N Dobos Architecture
Des Plaines, IL Architects and Building Designers
21 January 2013
“Natalja is a hard working architect who puts a lot of detail and attention into his work. I would highly recommend her.”
Michael Menn Ltd.
Des Plaines, IL Architects and Building Designers
31 January 2013
“Michael Menn designed and constructed with the help of his experienced pool of subcontractors the kitchen of my dreams in an older home that I love for both its tradition and its memories. It is a pleasure for me to come down in the morning to a space so much in keeping with the style of our home and offering me at the same time all that is in modo contemporary for the our time. Michael Menn is a gentleman who honors his word amd his contractural agreements. He was always available to me and responded promptly to any and all concerns or questions that I may have had. Michael is in addition someone with whom one could easily make a lasting friendship. I would not hesitiate for a minute to recommend him to others nor to contact him for any future projects that I had in mind.”
Jeremy Lew & Assoc., Inc.
Des Plaines, IL Architects and Building Designers
4 February 2014
“We worked with Jeremy Lew and his sons to design and build our home 15 years ago. They were very responsive to our suggestions and incorporated many of our ideas into the plan. They were efficient and we completed the project on time. It was a great experience.”
Reynolds Architecture- Design & Construction
Des Plaines, IL Architects and Building Designers
19 December 2012
“I am in the process of building my 3rd home with the Reynolds Group, and am thrilled (once again!) with what they provide. Doug Reynolds is an exceptionally creative architect who is able to transform dreams into reality, and is very responsive to a client's needs and wishes. His Construction Manager is highly organized with a strong attention to detail, who has a natural instinct for helping select the perfect materials and products for the job, is very effective in making things happen, and is a delight to work with. His staff are all extremely professional, helpful, responsive, and really, really nice people. Their ability to meet deadlines and stay on budgets is excellent, and communication is superb. I recommend them highly!”
Tigerman McCurry Architects
Des Plaines, IL Architects and Building Designers
9 June 2016
“Tigerman McCurry designed two homes for me that were completed in 1996 and 1997 -- an apartment in Chicago, Illinois and a house in Aspen, Colorado. Both residences are in the contemporary vernacular and the results are geometric and symmetrical. The completed residences appeared in Architectural Digest in the late 1990's. Working with the firm was a pure joy. Margaret and Stanley collaborated on the projects but Margaret took the lead with the interiors. The results were similar in feeling. Both residences exude warmth and elegance and provide lovely spaces for entertaining. Because I am an art collector, many museum tours have passed through both spaces, and the architecture and interior design receive as many compliments as the artworks. It is not surprising that both spaces have received significant professional awards. Working with both principals was a pure delight. Even today, I continue to work with Margaret on the Chicago apartment on various small projects. She is always available to me. I love working with her.”
Nicholas Design Collaborative
Des Plaines, IL Architects and Building Designers
5 February 2013
“Nicholas Design had designed and planned two houses for me. The first was the conversion of a 2-flat into a single family home. The second was the design of a new brick single family home. The second is the residence that I have been living in for 4 years. When my wife and I set out to build our new home, we have very distinctive ideas regarding layout, feel, and function. NDC helped us envision and design a layout that not only works for our family, but I think it's a superior layout compared to the typical city house on a 25 foot lot. In addition to architecture, NDC helped us work through local zoning and other issues that were necessary to get our project off the ground. NDC also provided advice and direction to the GC and construction manager ensuring a quality project that was completed on time and within budget. Four years later, I still walk into my home and say out loud that I love my house. Working with NDC was a true collaboration.”
Senga Architects
Des Plaines, IL Architects and Building Designers
12 April 2017
“I would refer Senga architects to anyone else who needs this service. They took special time to meet, explain, consult with and help me get this project to the next level at city hall. My drawings were just approved and I'm currently sitting in the city business development office hoping to get my business license today for my barbershop.”
Facilities Design Group PC
Des Plaines, IL Architects and Building Designers
15 September 2013
“Lilija was professional and knowledgeable, always returned our calls and emails promptly She provides great, fast service for very reasonable price.”
allan j grant and associates, architects
Des Plaines, IL Architects and Building Designers
28 May 2013
“Allan J. Grant, AIA is a phenomenal architect who really cares about his clients and their projects. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and dedicated in his approach. I highly recommend him should you need an architect.”
Thomas Architects
Des Plaines, IL Architects and Building Designers
3 September 2015
“After a phone call, Tom agreed to visit me and discuss the renovation of my condo. On-site, I found him both open to my ideas and replete with information that made sense for alternatives to my initial thoughts. I contracted him then and there to prepare my drawings and his turnaround was quick; within two weeks I saw my dreams on paper. He then shepherded my plans through the village and around the bureaucratic red-tape in short order. I highly recommend his services!”
