Featured Reviews for Chicago Architects and Building Designers

Jaffe Architecture + Interiors
Chicago Architects and Building Designers
Jun 1, 2015
“My husband and I had a great experience with JAG. Before we moved out of our old house, Ms. Jaffe and her assistant Ms. Lindsey visited, looked around, measured our furniture and discussed what we liked and didn't like about the house. They took copious notes and very obviously incorporated the information into the plans for our new house. We told them a few things - we wanted it to be contemporary, have a southeast facing kitchen and a wine room, and listed the other rooms we wanted. They built on this to create a masterpiece that we love coming home to every day! Ms. Jaffe is very creative and has a keen eye for decorating. Ms. Lindsey has every detail on paper and in her head, so that there were almost no surprises while the house was being built. Ms. Jaffe put in a lot of beautiful architectural features that we would not have imagined, such as a skylight and multi-surfaced walls, guided us when our ideas were bad, and followed our wishes when our tastes differed from hers. Ms. Lindsey made sure that all the details were perfect, such as making sure that the shelves behind our cabinet-door mounted spice racks are shorter than the other shelves, so the doors can close with the racks on them. They also helped with interior design, with the same attention to detail. JAG also has a great office staff that was able to keep us updated when Ms. Jaffe and Ms. Lindsey were not immediately available. We think this firm's fees are probably higher than average, but worth it. All in all, a very positive experience.”

“We worked with Jeremy Lew and his sons to design and build our home 15 years ago. They were very responsive to our suggestions and incorporated many of our ideas into the plan. They were efficient and we completed the project on time. It was a great experience.”

“Always a pleasure to work with! Matts architectural documents are complete and buildable. They offer great project support from start to finish. Matt is a competent designer able to design with in budget! Id recommend his firm to anyone.”
DII Architecture

“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.”

“Chris has been my architect for 5 years. He’s in charge of my business and residential planning and general contracting. I can’t do without him.”

“We are in the process of designing our future residence with JB Architecture. They have been very receptive to the ideas that we have brought to project while incorporating their vision and expertise. We are impressed with the due diligence on the part of the firm in dealing with local codes and fully utilizing the attributes of our lot. As the design portion nears completion, we look forward to the end product.”

Hess Architects
Chicago Architects and Building Designers
Sep 3, 2017
“My husband and I decided to add a first floor master on to our home. We spoke with several architects prior to meeting James Hess, that could not give us the look that we wanted on the exterior of the house. James helped us work through some tricky situations. We did not want our addition to look like an afterthought!! When the project was completed, the addition looked as though it should have always been there! I have recommended James to friends and neighbors. Thank you, James! We truly love the work that you provided for us!”
Building Materials Inc
Chicago Architects and Building Designers
Nov 6, 2012
“We worked with Jim Patrick in 2010 to develop a floorplan in an old apartment space we were having remodeled. The original space consisted of a small 1-BR apartment, and 3 adjacent (non-included) "sleeping rooms" from pre-war times. Jim helped us redesign the space(s) into a lovely, spacious 2-BR 2-bath apartment. Our general contractor used Building Materials for the project's materials. It was a pleasure doing business with Jim Patrick and Building Materials, Inc.”
Tigerman McCurry Architects
Chicago Architects and Building Designers

“Tigerman McCurry designed two homes for me that were completed in 1996 and 1997 -- an apartment in Chicago, Illinois and a house in Aspen, Colorado. Both residences are in the contemporary vernacular and the results are geometric and symmetrical. The completed residences appeared in Architectural Digest in the late 1990's. Working with the firm was a pure joy. Margaret and Stanley collaborated on the projects but Margaret took the lead with the interiors. The results were similar in feeling. Both residences exude warmth and elegance and provide lovely spaces for entertaining. Because I am an art collector, many museum tours have passed through both spaces, and the architecture and interior design receive as many compliments as the artworks. It is not surprising that both spaces have received significant professional awards. Working with both principals was a pure delight. Even today, I continue to work with Margaret on the Chicago apartment on various small projects. She is always available to me. I love working with her.”
