Lenore Weiss Studios, LLC
Des Plaines, IL Architects and Building Designers
July 1, 2014
My home is a beautiful haven, and it's because of Lenore Weiss. She designed and supervised the work on the remodels of two bathrooms, kitchen, family room, living room, dining room, and screen porch. From appliances, to layout, to color, to furniture, to area rugs, to tile, every step of the process was carried out under Lenore's gentle scrutiny, keen design sense, and attention to detail. The jobs were always on schedule, the disruptions minimal, and the final products works of beauty. She is aware of the lifestyle and taste of her clients, and she works to create surroundings that will make them feel at home. I recommend her with confidence and with gratitude.
Hackley & Associates Architects, Inc.

November 23, 2015
As a builder in Naples, Florida, we recommend Chip Hackley and his team at Hackley Associates to anyone in the Chicago Metro Area, as well as anyone who owns in Naples, Marco Island, or Bonita Beach, who wants to either design and build a custom home, or wants to remodel a luxury home or condo. Chip understands that you want your own special place, with your own style and taste. It is imperative that you trust the team you have chosen to design your dream. Hackley Associates is a team you can trust and I highly recommend them.

I have had the privilege of working with Jim Fraerman and his team on 2 residential projects. FAA creates beautifully planned structures that are timeless and elegant. Each collaboration has gone incredibly smoothly and our clients have been beyond happy with not only the results results, but the process as well. If you contract with this firm you will find yourself with an incredible home that will stand the test of time.

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.

Besch Design, Ltd.
Des Plaines, IL Architects and Building Designers
November 12, 2013
Steve Besch of Besch Design worked as our architect on our historic home rehab project in Chicago, IL. As the home was built in the 1920's and had multiple additions over the years, it proved a challenge to modernize. Steve's thoughtful, innovative and comprehensive design and engineering work laid the foundation for a beautiful outcome. He redesigned a house full of small, dark rooms to achieve a spacious, livable floorplan that maintained its original architectural integrity. Steve partnered with us throughout the project -- from idea conception, plans and permits, contracting and construction, to finish work. He interacted effectively with our contractors and made himself available for all our questions. When needed onsite, he was timely and efficient, keeping us on schedule. His experienced, hands-on approach was invaluable during our project. To achieve success in a home build or design project, it is critical to have vested partners -- without hesitation, Steve Besch and Besch Design was that partner. We will not hesitate to bring him in on our next project or recommend him to others.
Nicholas Design Collaborative
Des Plaines, IL Architects and Building Designers
February 5, 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.
Becker Architects Limited
Des Plaines, IL Architects and Building Designers
March 25, 2014
In our experience, Becker Architects is deeply committed to every project they take on. Both my clients and I have hired them for projects that run from very small to large additions and renovations. Richard dedicated himself with the same level of passion and creative spirit every time. The value for the service is truly unique and has motivated Paint JAR Inc to seek out their services on numerous occasions. Truly a key addition to a successful project.

Tim is one of the most thoughtful and gifted architects I have encountered. He has a deep appreciation for enduring design and creates exterior and interior spaces that stand the test of time, elegantly packaged and appropriate to their surroundings.
