gordon architecture, inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Mount Prospect, IL
"When it became apparent that I was going to need to do something about the kitchen in my 1893 Queen Anne Victorian house, I needed some help. Pretty much everything, from the appliances to the floor to the cabinets and countertops needed to be addressed. I knew I wanted quality solutions, and I was prepared to spend appropriately, but not extravagantly, to get that result. Most importantly, I wanted a kitchen that looked like it fit in a house built in the late 19th century. But I really had no idea where to start and could not spend significant amounts of time figuring it out. I asked Shawn Gordon if he could help, not sure whether this was in the mainstream of the work he did. I could not be happier with the result. Shawn meticulously researched period-appropriate alternatives for every aspect of the project. He took colors, architectural style, lighting and practicality into consideration. He photographed the all of the surrounding rooms and made sure that the kitchen concepts he presented to me blended with the adjacent spaces. All the while, he was careful to keep in mind practicality and my budget. I am delighted with everything Shawn suggested and delivered. From the pine floor and wainscot to the period-appropriate hardware and lighting fixtures to the custom-designed cabinetry and countertops, I ended up with a completely remodeled and updated kitchen that fits perfectly in this old house.

Michael Menn Ltd.
Architects and Building Designers in Mount Prospect, 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."

Lenore Weiss Studios, LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Mount Prospect, 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."

Kipnis Architecture + Planning
Architects and Building Designers in Mount Prospect, 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!"
- Carol Klobucar
DII Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Mount Prospect, IL
"I’ll be up front, Jereme, is our son-in-law. We were going to build a new house for our retirement home. It was on an old farm site. There were some buildings but no home. He asked if he could design our new house. We said Ok, with some trepidation. Why? Because Jereme loved modern architecture and we did not. We also wanted a sustainable house. I have to say, Jereme came through. We LOVE our house. I would classify it as a modern farmhouse. Whenever we wanted changes, Jereme would redo things until they came out the way we liked. Our house is very unique. The contractor as well as people he had build the house said it was one of their favorite projects. I know we had some new things that they had never worked on before such as polished concrete for the floors and Corten on the outside, as well as railings from steel cables. We also had reclaimed wood and in-floor heating as well as a wind tower. Looking back, the only area I can think of where I wasn’t satisfied around the design was around our front door area. Jereme and I went over and over about the front door. I didn’t like the way he was doing the whole area, but it finally was resolved when the contractor came up with an idea I could live with. We also regret trying to save money and doing electric in-floor heating. We now wished we had spent the money on Geo-thermal, but that wasn’t the fault of DII. In fact, Jereme provided us research on multiple options. All in all, we are very happy with our home and would definitely recommend Design Insight, and Jereme, as someone to design your house."

How do I find the best Mount Prospect 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 Mount Prospect 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 Mount Prospect, 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 Mount Prospect, 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 Mount Prospect 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?
