custom home architects and builders in Highland Park, il

At Scott Simpson Design + Build, we have more than 30 years of experience in the architecture and construction of custom homes in and around Highland Park, Illinois. Our North Shore architects and builders specialize in new home construction, large-scale remodels, historic renovations, and eco-conscious green building projects.

Just 25 miles north of Chicago, Highland Park is named from its parklike setting at a lofty elevation relative to the lake on the North Shore. Landmark and historic homes are interwoven throughout Highland Park alongside attractions such as the outdoor musical venue Ravinia Festival, locations for many movies and a robust downtown shopping district. We have enjoyed working on a variety of home building projects, including a stunning lakefront home the reimagination of this 1990s Georigan and this cohesive, modern renovation in Highland Park.
