" My husband and I hired Nate Kipnis and his firm after interviewing several architects about the design of our vacation property. Our wish was to build a second home with green features, and Kipnis' firm was without question up to the task. He educated us about the options for building materials, helped us select a contractor, then worked closely with the contractor to make sure he understood all of the innovative design features. Other members of his staff were equally professional. Nate was highly knowledgable, yet he listened to our input and designed a home that remains today a huge source of pride for our family. He was a pleasure to work with every step of the way! "
" I worked with Nathan Kipnis on a complete re-hab of my ranch style home. The house was gutted back to the stud and the rooms reconfigured in a contemporary, light filled design, taking advantage of passive solar benefits. All new insulation, siding, roofing and mechanicals were installed. From the initial design drawings through the very last punch jobs they were attentive and helpful with every detail. They have not only a great eye for design but an extensive knowledge of construction mechanicals required to make the design work. I highly recommend the Kipnis team and would work with them again on any project requiring architectural expertise. "
" We hired Kipnis Architecture + Planning to design and build our new office in Evanston. After finding them on Houzz and calling based on their portfolio work, we immediately realized we had the right firm for the work. They were amazing to collaborate with on this project and hit it out of the ballpark on their first iteration of the design concept. They understood our culture and came up with a design that met our needs both functionally and culturally. "
