Chicago's Full-Scope Architecture & Design/Build Firm
Best of Houzz 4x
Design Insight Inc.(DII) is a design/build architecture firm specializing in custom residential and commercial architecture, plus high-end remodels/renovations. We aim to creatively solve functional needs, while instilling graceful solutions for any project; small to large. DII strives for a honed, mature & warm modern feel in the execution of our work. We pride ourselves on high customer care & personal relationships, and try to let the work speak for itself. Usually, a sense of highly crafted work is the result of a smaller scale materials & furniture background. Given the luxury of time, we relish the opportunity to experiment w/ as many design ideas as possible; ultimately to reach the best solution. This is our passion! As an architecturally licensed and fully insured company, DII adheres to the highest level of quality standards while working within each project’s budget. We believe that anything is possible and welcome and foster any/all custom challenges. Whenever possible, we also try to incorporate green materials & infuse environmentally conscious design concepts. DII believes that after rigorous due diligence via our design & build phases, the final product will be inventive, highly functional, & will hopefully inspire.
