Named Remodeler of the Year by National Association of Home Builders 2016! Michael Menn has been providing architectural and construction services that have exceeded his clients’ expectations since 1977. Michael is a licensed architect in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Wisconsin and Arizona, and has reciprocity in more than 40 other states. He formed his first architectural private practice in 1983, devoted to small custom residential and commercial projects. Over the years that firm evolved into a diverse architectural, planning, interior design and construction firm. Most companies will list honesty as an attribute, somewhere after quality, experience and maybe even low price. We think honesty is the most important attribute to look for in an architect or construction resource. After all, if you cannot trust these people, you cannot work with them. Our honesty is manifest in the following ways: We do not overpromise. We set realistic expectations and then work hard to exceed them. When you ask our opinion, we will tell you what we think. That is part of what you are paying for. We only work with trades (subcontractors) that share these values. While Michael Menn, Principal of Michael Menn Ltd., has won numerous awards, he is most proud of the award he won for marketplace ethics from the Illinois Better Business Bureau. Of course you should not just take our word for this. Ask our clients.

Natalja received her degree in Architecture from Technical University of Berlin.

Lenore Weiss Studios was founded on the belief that architecture must be inspirational, eminently functional, and delightful to all the senses: - Provide homes that mirror the wishes, hopes and dreams of the people who live there — create a supportive sanctuary enhancing the lifestyle of its occupants - Make everyday tasks not only easy to accomplish but a pleasure to do — now and in the future To make this possible requires only one thing from our clients: that you be you. To merit your trust, we bring a number of qualities to the drawing table: - Award-winning experience in creating the environments our clients seek — from a simple kitchen remodeling to designing a corporate headquarters. - Listening closely to what clients say — and sometimes what they don’t — to create customized design solutions that accurately reflect unique lifestyle requirements. - Providing unusual expertise, from international design systems to the latest sustainable materials and technologies. - Working well as part of a team — Our years of experience have enabled us to form alliances with other design professionals who excel in specific areas of expertise, and share our expectations for superior quality and customer service. We will assemble a team, as appropriate, to enhance project objectives with other design colleagues such as award-winning landscape architects, lighting, acoustical and electronic system designers, contractors, and even furniture makers and metal smiths. Our inclusive process includes effective communication practices ensuring that projects progress as smoothly as possible.
Ever since I can remember, I have been passionate about art, architecture and design. My residential and small commercial work brings my clients into the 21st Century. Regardless of the style and decade of your project, I can personalize it to your specifications. My goal in every project is to provide my clients with pragmatic solutions with style and resale value. I can focus on the small millwork details of the cabinetry as much as the overall conceptual design. After graduating with a professional degree in Architecture, my love for the urban life eventually drew me to Chicago, the city of architects Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies Van der Rohe, and Louis Sullivan. In this rich environment, I got my license and established Petrick Architecture in 2000 as an independent practice. I find it extremely rewarding to craft a vision in harmony with my clients’ requirements and desires. As a mom and a property owner, I can truly empathize and understand many of my clients’ needs. In the course of my career, I have learned so much from all the people and different projects. I think that the most rewarding element is seeing my projects start from an awkward house to a quality, refined home that my clients will enjoy living in for years to come. It will never cease to amaze me.
We believe that the design process begins with curiosity, and that this eagerness to learn is most productive when it is shared between architect and client. We like to ask questions, we like to solve problems, and we like to collaborate. Most of all, we want our work to express the knowledge and experience of the people that use, design and construct our surroundings. ERA works on a range of projects and scales from furniture, to interior renovation, to new building construction. The work is unified by a collaborative design process between architect and client, and a focus on the material, detail and assembly of the built work. Prior to founding his own studio, Eric spent over a decade at the offices of Diller Scofidio + Renfro, KieranTimberlake, and LevenBetts, where he designed and managed a wide range of award-winning residential, commercial and cultural projects. At ERA, Eric brings this experience together with the attention and client-focus possible in a small studio setting. He combines expertise with experimentation, practical knowledge with personalization, and an ability to find creative opportunities within design challenges. Eric Rothfeder, AIA, LEED, received a B.A. with Distinction from Yale University and an M.Arch from Princeton University. He has taught architecture at several universities, most recently as a full-time Visiting Artist at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His research and design projects have been exhibited at the BSA Space in Boston, the Storefront for Art and Architecture, and the Fondazione Sandretto in Italy; and published in Domus, Bidoun, La Vanguardia (Barcelona), Competitions Magazine and the Architect's Newspaper. He is a registered architect in Illinois, New York and Massachusetts, a LEED Accredited Professional, and a Chicago Registered Energy Professional.
