Residential Architect Services in Wisconsin and Illinois

Improve Your Lifestyle With Architecture


We are a husband and wife architecture firm based on the Illinois-Wisconsin border.  Our clients seek high-end residential design with our unique construction expertise.


With 15+ years designing and building houses and additions, we understand budgets and construction costs.  As licensed architects, we are your partner throughout the whole process to ensure you have an architect designed, 

in-budget home.

Looking to build your dream home?  We can design a custom house for your empty lot or to replace a current residence.  Interested in modern architecture or more traditional architecture? We're versed in all architectural styles.
Addition / Renovation

You love where you live, but your house needs a little work.  It's too small, and the layout isn't great.  We're experts at re-imaging houses.
Our design-build service offers in-house design and construction.
Want to create interest for your business?  Start with great design.  We've all flocked to that swanky new restaurant in town or that cozy coffee shop. Good commercial architecture starts in a great design studio.
Kitchen Remodel

As our name suggests, we create personalized, designed spaces for the way you live.

Dollar for dollar, the kitchen is the most expensive room in your home.  Appliances, cabinetry, and tile backsplashes are not inexpensive.  We make sure that the space is incredible and your investment is maximized.
Bathroom Remodel

Second to only the kitchen, 
bathrooms are costly.  We help you get it right.  Many bathrooms are dysfunctional, poorly designed spaces.  We approach every design with a clean slate which means your not locked into that awkward toilet location or that tiny shower.
