"It was a wonderful experience working with Chuck at Cook Architectural. We could not make up our mind regarding our design and Chuck was always able to offer objective guidance. He never tired of our numerous questions and always had insight to share, which made our decision path that much clearer. I appreciated how realistic his budgeting was so that there were no surprises later on. We will definitely use Cook Architectural again!"

"My company, AMLI Residential, has worked with the Schwarz Lewis team on many projects over the years. The projects range from 200 to 500+ luxury residential apartment units and included mid-rise and high-rise multifamily urban and suburban communities. Each project was unique and appropriately designed for our end user-the apartment resident. Both Brad and Bill worked very closely with us to design spaces with outstanding exterior architecture and extremely livable interior layouts and features. Brad is an exceptional design architect with the depth and expertise to create homes that people truly love.

"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."

How do I find the best Plato Center 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 Plato Center 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 Plato Center, 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 Plato Center, 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 Plato Center 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?
