Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Glenview, IL
Mandy Brown Architects, PC
Architects and Building Designers in Glenview, IL
"I highly recommend Mandy Brown for any of your interior design or architectural needs. My husband and I purchased a home that was designed by Mandy and we could not be more pleased. Having such high level of taste can not be taught. I appreciate that she keeps family and women in mind when it comes to the form, function and beauty of her homes. She is thoughtful and mindful and has very classic taste. It is clear she does not design something without knowing all the aspects of every inch of space and designs spaces that continue to be functional, beautiful and timeless. I think you can see from her photos her work is impeccable. Having purchased a home designed by Mandy I can say first hand her work is of the highest quality and has fabulous details and finishes throughout. Not only did we buy a house she designed we had the opportunity to work with Mandy on some other projects in our home to help suit our needs. Mandy is very thoughtful and very professional and gets back to you quickly. She is so easy going and works well with other professionals in the design business. This a wonderful trait to have especially when you tend to be stressed about a project and panicking over the little details and decisions. Thankfully she is always level headed and makes you feel confident about what is going on. Mandy is extremely creative and talented. I have had the pleasure to view some of her personal art work and photography and she is amazing. I guess it only makes sense that she would also be so talented at creating beautiful homes! Mandy is open minded and a pleasure to work with. You can easily go back and forth with her on any ideas and she educates you on pros and cons of every decision. I appreciate someone who is always thinking ahead. I highly recommend Mandy for any of your home needs. If you choose to work with Mandy in any capacity you will not be disappointed. We adore her and I know you will too! "

Kipnis Architecture + Planning
Architects and Building Designers in Glenview, IL
"My husband and I hired Nate Kipnis and his firm after interviewing several architects about the design of our vacation property. Our wish was to build a second home with green features, and the Kipnis firm was without question up to the task. He educated us about the options for building materials, helped us select a contractor, then worked closely with the contractor to make sure he understood all of the innovative design features. Other members of his staff were equally professional. Nate was highly knowledgable, yet he listened to our input and designed a home that remains today a huge source of pride for our family. He was a pleasure to work with every step of the way!"

Stuart D. Shayman Associates
Architects and Building Designers in Glenview, IL
"The architect was faced with a very difficult challenge, to take a 100 year old clapboard house that was 1200 square feet in area and transform it into a 1800 square foot house with an open floor design all while preserving the historical character of the residence. An exceptionally clever design was employed that resulted in what is considered one of the most outstanding homes in Ann Arbor. We could not have been happier with the result."

Michael Norpell's Wall to Wall
Architects and Building Designers in Glenview, IL
"Michael Norpell has been a fantastic person to work with. He came in to a situation with our house that had a nasty, and I mean NASTY pool in the back that had a funky 80's shape and not a lot of hope for it to look good. After surveying the property with me and looking at pictures I had pulled from many different places, he came back 2 days later with perfect drawings of a pool and the setting around it that blew me away. He "got me" in that he understood my vision but was able to take it so much further and better than I imagined. He sought out the subcontractors and supervised all of them throughout the production of the pool, making sure they all knew what the others were doing so that the timing went well. I now have a very envied pool that looks straight out of a high end resort, but at a very reasonable price. Michael also helped me indoors when I first moved in-he helped me figure out where to place a fairly extensive Folk Art collection, helped with new furniture decisions, new kitchen table, etc. His best piece is a fantastic rug he designed using FLOR-he brought a lot of pieces I had together to make a pretty good room into a WOW room. I can not say enough good things about the work that Michael Norpell does. He gets the highest score possible from both my husband and myself!!!"

OCGG Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Glenview, IL
"OCGG was the architect and design firm for our split level remodel. It was a challenging project. Greg is extremely creative and came up with amazing ideas. Okie is extremely organized and really assisted moving the project along and getting permits. Because the remodel and roof line were so challenging, our framing crew and GC had questions in the field. Greg showed up in the field at 7am when needed so the project did not get slowed. As changes and opportunities came during the project, Greg would show up and offer ideas. They are also amazing designers and give many ideas. I love the style, creativity and responsiveness of this firm. I highly recommend."

Lenore Weiss Studios, LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Glenview, IL
"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."

Michael Menn Ltd.
Architects and Building Designers in Glenview, IL
"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."

How do I find the best Glenview architect for my home design project?


It is best to hire a home architect who will be involved in all phases of the design process, from the initial concept to the completed construction. The architect is often the first person you will hire for your project. If necessary, they might also help you select and hire Illinois subcontractors, which can include the builders, engineers and landscaper. Interior architects are also involved in negotiating contracts for all involved participants. It is for these reasons that it is extremely important for you to have a good relationship with the Glenview residential architect you hire. He or she can be the tie-breaking vote between you and the general contractor and can be your biggest advocate during the construction process. Different architecture firms in Glenview, IL provide different services, so the scope of the work can span from pre-design environmental impact studies to selecting furniture and finishes, depending on what your specific needs are.

What sort of process can I expect from a residential architect?


As far as the process goes, the architecture firm or individual that you choose will start with concept drawings and finish with construction drawings and documents. Some firms even design with 3D renderings and videos, but that should not be assumed. There should be plenty of meetings between you and your building designer until you have agreed upon a design that you are completely happy with. Always keep in mind that the designer will have building codes to follow, and likely pre-existing design limitations when dealing with a remodel, so while they might not be able to execute your exact ideas they always have your safety and aesthetics in mind. One of the most important duties of a residential architect is to serve as managers and supervise most aspects of construction, as well as facilitate communication between all other contractors, so you can expect them to be present throughout the entire building process to ensure everything is executed as planned.

It is very important to hire the right professional for the job. Remember that the most well-known or established designer might not provide the best architectural services for your needs. It all comes down to the individual project. Research and ask people whose work you like for recommendations. It's important to have somewhat of an idea of the style of house architecture that you prefer, as well as the amount you would like to spend. Residential architects in Glenview, IL are natural problem solvers. They will assess the entire situation and help you to solve your problems too. Don't settle for a single company too early. Call and interview a few. Make sure that you feel like your personalities will mesh well and that you like their professional perspective.

Questions to ask prospective Glenview interior architects:


  • What is your fee structure?
  • What does the cost include?
  • Do you have professional liability insurance?
  • Can you handle my special requests (ADA, LEED etc.)?
  • What types of renderings (3D, video, illustrative) will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When do you expect to start and be finished with the project?
  • What do your services include? (It's best that the services are until construction is completed.)
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Would you say your work has a defining style? (This is important in case the architect's personal style will interfere with your vision.)
  • Will you help with hiring a general contractor and subcontractors?
  • What do you estimate the cost will be?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any complications you foresee with this project?
