Featured Reviews for Downers Grove, IL Architects and Building Designers

Meyer Design
Downers Grove, IL Architects and Building Designers
June 29, 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.

Debra was exactly what we were hoping for. We needed plans for an addition, master bedroom and bath, above our existing garage. She was always on time, incredibly thorough, and very friendly throughout the whole process. We highly recommend her!

We are in the process of designing our future residence with JB Architecture.

Liv Companies LLC Design + Build
Downers Grove, IL Architects and Building Designers
January 13, 2015
We have been working with Liv Companies on the major kitchen and bath remodel of our LaGrange, IL home, which included removing big walls, new electrical, and new plumbing. We wanted a character home with a more modern layout, but were intimidated by the renovation process. Dave and Russ have made the whole thing so easy from start to finish. When we were house hunting, they helped us understand the potential of homes as well as the budget that would be required to help us achieve our vision. During the renovation process, working with a company where the architect and the builder are partners and have a track record of working together made the whole process smooth and seamless. Most importantly, the design and the execution of that design was flawless and we could not be more pleased with the outcome. Liv Companies helped us create a custom home that is perfect for our family (and stayed on budget!).

Kim Haig is a fantastic architect. She has a great eye for the details large and small, and knows how to put together spaces that work well both on their own and room-to-room in relation to each other. Our project was a success and it started with the plans she created.
Allegretti Architects, Inc.
Downers Grove, IL Architects and Building Designers
July 28, 2013
We interviewed 3 architects and chose John Allegretti based on his previous work and enthusiasm for our specific project. We wanted to go from a 1-1/2 story, 2 bedroom, 1-1/2 bath to something more. Our lot size is 33 x 132 ft. which isn't much to work with. Our location on lake Michigan's Silver Beach is extremely desirable but our home was not allowing us to take full advantage of available views. John created a full second story complete with a master suite (bedroom, bath and living area) and walk out second floor deck. This deck offers privacy and another beach view perspective. We now have expansive views throughout our home. (John used glass railings throughout.) We ended up with a more spacious home than we had envisioned. John also presented our project to the local planning commission (we needed variances), and remained engaged throughout the project which was a big help to us. We would work with John Allegretti and his associates again.
