“Had the pleasure of working with Marc for my room addition in Schaumburg in 2005. He's easy going, has great ideas, delivers quality on time, and is always available if you have a question or concern. What more could you ask for? I highly recommend Marc and his company for any or all of your remodeling needs.”

“This fall T.R. Architects built a stone patio in our backyard. I liked the craftsmanship as well as the careful clean up after the project was finished.”
Jason Meyering Architecture
Lake Forest, IL Architects and Building Designers
August 13, 2018
“I have worked with Jason for the past 10 years on a wide variety of projects and he is an incredible architect! He has the perfect balance of design ingenuity and technical savvy that many design professionals lack. His strengths lie in his ability to creatively solve complex design issues and develop clever solutions that are beautiful and timeless. Beyond that, Jason is the hardest working architect I have ever known. He will work night and day to achieve the optimal design solution aesthetically, while adhering to time frame, build-ability and budget. Don't think twice and hire Jason.”

“The GreenBuilt Home Tour is honored to have an innovative home by Michael Kollman on our 2014 Chicago area showcase event. As an initiative of the USGBC-Illinois Chapter, the GreenBuilt Home Tour requires that all dwellings featured on the tour meet stringent requirements for energy efficiency, indoor air quality and sustainability. The SmartHaus by Wexler/Kollman is cited as a model for continued "green" design and construction in the Village of Northbrook, Illinois. As an organization that seeks to promote sustainable building practices and technologies, the USGBC-Illinois is proud to acknowledge the achievements of Wexler/Kollman P.C., Ltd.”
Besch Design, Ltd.
Lake Forest, 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.”

“As a builder in Naples, Florida, we recommend Michael and his team at Ehlke Lonigro Architects to anyone in the Chicago Metro Area, as well as anyone who owns in Naples, Bonita Beach, or Marco Island, who wants to either design and build a custom home, or wants to remodel a luxury home or condo. Michael understands that you want your own special place, that reflects your style and taste. It is imperative that you trust the team you have chosen to design your dream. Ehlke Lonigro Architects is a team you can trust and we highly recommend them.”

“Diana and her team are unparalleled. In a community where architecturally significant homes are the norm. Diana excels in fulfilling the historic vision of the homes she works on while enhancing the structures to meet the homeowners modern needs. She is a delight to work with, as are her associates. Diana has made our historic home comfortable and suitable for life in the 21st century while keeping the integrity of David Adler's design-no easy feat. We are grateful for her counsel and guidance and have enjoyed getting to know her and the members of her firm. We would recommend her without hesitation and with great enthusiasm!”
