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 + Real Estate Broker

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). I revel in bringing an idea on paper to life. I’m a self-proclaimed college football fanatic (Go Buckeyes!) and travel extraordinaire. Exploring new places broadens my mind and constantly expands my design creativity. I am my own toughest critic and believe obstacles are merely opportunities to grow. If something can be improved or made more efficient, I’ll always take initiative to do it myself or find someone that can. I’m a strong believer in taking action and accountability instead of complaining. I’m an honorary member of Chicago Streets & Sanitation and volunteer each week to pick up trash around my neighborhood. Clean spaces make me happy!

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.

Audra Brown

Design Consultant

Visionary, creative and master simplifier. I deemed myself an artist at the age of 5 after winning a local grocery store coloring contest and have been passionate about creating beauty ever since. With a background in fine arts, design, and tech applications, I love to build singular, synchronized experiences regardless of medium. I have an adventurous soul that expresses in the exploration of textures, color, forms, and the juxtaposition of the architectural and organic. I am endlessly curious and delight to find inspiration in the most unlikely places.

Stephanie Griffin

Virtual 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.

Bryce Powers

Operation Manager + Project Coordinator

Passionate, Honest, and probably thinking about what I will cook next. As a creative problem solver and sincere communicator, I thrive on learning what makes people unique. I believe that the spaces we inhabit reflect a part of our identity and that design is a way to connect people. I constantly seek inspiration from life, social media and the pages of a good book.

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.

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