2,521 Chicago Architects and Building Designers

Chicago Architects are masters of building design and can make your dream house a reality. Perhaps you would like to find Chicago architects to help you extend the kitchen and install bifold doors opening out onto a newly landscaped garden? Maybe the challenge is a loft conversion but you’re not sure how to make the most of the limited space up there? You might even wish to hire architects in Chicago to help you build your own house from the ground up. Architects can help you to get a clearer idea of what is possible, both in terms of the land you own and the budget you have. They have extensive knowledge of architectural design, construction methods and building materials, not to mention a strong appreciation of ergonomics – warmth, light and flow within a property. Architects will also be far more capable of seeing the bigger picture – carefully balancing aesthetic appeal with structural safety – and navigating all those little steps from concept through to completion. And with their local knowledge, your Chicago architects will also often help to obtain planning permission and building regulations approval. More

Featured Reviews for Chicago Architects and Building Designers

Chicago Architects and Building Designers

Jaffe Architecture + Interiors
Chicago Architects and Building Designers
1 Jun 2015
“My husband and I had a great experience with JAG. Before we moved out of our old house, Ms. Jaffe and her assistant Ms. Lindsey visited, looked around, measured our furniture and discussed what we liked and didn't like about the house. They took copious notes and very obviously incorporated the information into the plans for our new house. We told them a few things - we wanted it to be contemporary, have a southeast facing kitchen and a wine room, and listed the other rooms we wanted. They built on this to create a masterpiece that we love coming home to every day! Ms. Jaffe is very creative and has a keen eye for decorating. Ms. Lindsey has every detail on paper and in her head, so that there were almost no surprises while the house was being built. Ms. Jaffe put in a lot of beautiful architectural features that we would not have imagined, such as a skylight and multi-surfaced walls, guided us when our ideas were bad, and followed our wishes when our tastes differed from hers. Ms. Lindsey made sure that all the details were perfect, such as making sure that the shelves behind our cabinet-door mounted spice racks are shorter than the other shelves, so the doors can close with the racks on them. They also helped with interior design, with the same attention to detail. JAG also has a great office staff that was able to keep us updated when Ms. Jaffe and Ms. Lindsey were not immediately available. We think this firm's fees are probably higher than average, but worth it. All in all, a very positive experience.”

Meyer Design
Chicago Architects and Building Designers
29 Jun 2012
“We collaborated with Meyer Design for the interior design/decoration of a beautiful new home designed by their firm. They were consistently helpful providing us with floor plans, details and very knowledgeable, which helped us immensely when making field changes. Their help was crucial to provide the client with the best interior possible. They were always very professional and went out of their way to work on this project. They helped us meet deadlines and stay on budget. The home was (grand total) over 8,000 square feet that included a full finished basement.”

“The Architects and Designers at Burns and Beyerl are true professionals. Their aesthetic and design approach is always thoughtful and unique. The best part about working with Burns and Beyerl is that they are exceptionally organized. In addition to being great designers, they are also a fun and energetic group.”
James Michael Vanderheyden
Chicago Architects and Building Designers
29 Apr 2015
“My husband and I were very happy with James' work for us which included architectural work for our master bedroom and bathroom and our kitchen. Our Oak Park home is a 1906 gem and we wanted to keep the integrity of detail yet become more livable. Both projects included moving walls; designing wooden details--windows to cabinets--that reflected detail in the rest of the house; placing weight-bearing beams to support ceilings and roof; redesigning stairs to basement and back yard, etc. Vanderheyden is a good listener and a solid architect/designer. He worked well with both our contractor and kitchen designer to improve and carry out our designs. We give him 5 stars. Linda and John Hillman”

Morgante Wilson Architects

12 Feb 2013
“We can't say enough about MWA! We used them as architects and interior designers when building our new home. They listened to us, really got in our heads about our likes and needs, and gave us a perfectly personalized plan. They thought of all the details that we never would have during the building process. Very thorough and professional. And everyone is so nice! These are people you want to hang out with. Even when there were problems and surprises (always are in these projects), they handled everything well. We would definitely recommend them as people and professionals! You will not be disappointed with MWA!”
