At Scott Simpson Design + Build, we have more than 25 years of experience creating custom homes in and around Evanston, Illinois. Our unified team of North Shore architects and builders specialize in new home construction, historic renovations, and eco-conscious green building projects.

In the 1850s, the founders of Northwestern University created the village of Evanston along Chicago’s northern lakefront. Evanston impresses with a mix of single-family home architecture including Queen Anne, Italianate, Victorian Gothic, Neoclassical, Tudor to Prairie and Modern. Home to Scott Simpson and his family, this historic suburb has lead us to everything from restoring mock Tudor manors to creating modern farmhouses. We have enjoyed working on a variety of home building projects, including this favorite Modern Farmhouse Hospitality Home in Evanston.

Evanston is known for its cultural diversity, impressive Big 10 campus, unique lakefront beauty and robust character.  After more than 25 years of building new homes in Evanston, we believe we have the right combination of experience, references, and resources to deliver on the vision for your luxury home in Evanston. Opting for a united design-build service is a smart approach as it affords access to licensed architects, builders, and a dedicated project management team simultaneously.

Our team works with long-standing subcontractors, suppliers, and craftspeople to maximize spending power, minimize obstacles, and pay attention to detail with each step of the process. This allows your family to enjoy the luxury of a collaborative, informed, and inspiring process all along the way.

We would be happy to take you on a tour through some of our custom homes in Evanston and other suburbs of Chicago’s North Shore, including Winnetka and Hubbard Woods, Lake Forest, Glencoe, Glenview, Highland Park, Kenilworth, Wilmette and Northbrook.

Please contact us and we’ll get something on the schedule.
