There is no better feeling than doing what you love.

We are a dynamic team with a passion for design and development. We saw an industry that could benefit from our combined thirty plus years experience of project management, our obsession with organization and our commitment to chasing perfection. Each project is an opportunity to create better designs, efficiencies, processes and exceptional homes.

Our purpose is to add to the rich architectural story of Chicago, build homes for extraordinary clients, and make something truly beautiful.

Dee Thompson

Owner + Chief Construction Officer

Extreme multi-tasker, planner and perfectionist. 100% Aries. I could wallpaper my home with all the lists that run my life. I often fall asleep with one hand on the computer and the other on the phone (sad if I weren’t a productivity junkie). Obstacles are merely opportunities to learn. I revel in bringing an idea on paper to life. I’m a self-proclaimed travel fanatic. Exploring new places broadens my mind and constantly expands my design creativity. I am my own toughest critic and if something can be improved or made more efficient, I’ll push to make it happen.

Lauren Arnold

Virtual Senior Design Consultant

Chicago native, fantasy football fanatic, yogi (in training). I’m an organizational junkie and nothing makes me happier than a color-coated planner. I truly live by the work hard play hard mantra, especially when celebrating a Bears’ win. I’ve found that the key to progression and productivity is realizing that not every day is a good day – show up anyway.

Dione Balingit

Real Estate Broker

Diligent, detail oriented and a planner. Some may say that if I can plan the whole year I would. I believe that in order to be successful in anything, whether it’s a trip or a project, there has to be a plan to get to the destination. I have a strong interest in art and travel. Speaking of trips, I also love to travel all over the world and see all the beauties that each place has to offer. Fun fact, my husband and I are art collectors.

Stephanie Griffin

Design Consultant

Honest, Optimistic and Bold.  I look for beauty and  function in all things.  I’ve never met a stranger, and believe a glass of red wine and deep laugh with a good friend can cure most ills. My design background started in 2000 and ranges from commercial homebuilding to Nordstrom to party planning, and now my focus is based around working with clients to create the custom living space of their dreams.  I believe in positivity and know that if there is a will, there is a way.

Dijana Savic-Jambert & Marc Jambert

Sustainability Design Consultants

Trailblazers, storytellers and healthy materials advocates. We are an internationally inspired duo creating design narratives from the Midwest to France. With our European sensibility and strong environmental principles, we focus on creating healthy interiors through sustainable and regenerative design practices. We love challenging the status quo, which is exactly why we have embarked on a career-long journey to reshape the standards of the built environment by transforming each space into the most healthy version of itself.

Paige Rogers

Client Experience Liaison

Desert dweller, constant advocate for the underdog, wannabe gardener. I am inspired by finding beauty in unexpected places. As a lifelong learner, I have a tireless commitment to continuous quality improvement. Trained in conflict resolution and motivational interviewing, I love helping people uncover their goals and passions and define their vision. What makes a house a home is unique for each person. For me, it’s having a cozy place to sit and chat with friends, wide open outdoor space for my kids to play, and the constant smell of coffee wafting from the kitchen.

Kira Schorr

Marketing Coordinator

Determined, conscientious, and earnest. Limitless potential if only there were limitless time in the day. I’m a foodie by nature and exerciser by consequence and love reading, writing, drawing, and music. I live by the idea that life is a continuous cycle of learning and reflection, and that the goodness you put out in the world will always come back. Happiness is a choice that I embrace every time.

Ali Suryanarayanan

Senior Design Consultant + Project Coordination

Determined, loyal, and mindful. I am a Pilates-enthusiast with a penchant for mezcal and passion for travel. Curiosity creates room for creativity, learning, and continuous improvement. I live by the idea that happiness unfolds when what you do aligns with what you want and believe in cultivating spaces that support how people want to live.

We might sound good on paper, but we’re even better in person.
