Custom Modern Home Architects and Builders North Shore Chicago
At Scott Simpson Design + Build, we have been doing custom modern home architecture and building homes for more than 25 years. Our North Shore architects and builders specialize in new home construction, historic renovations, and eco-conscious green building projects.
We love when a home features the clean lines, minimalism, natural materials, unadorned windows that bring in natural light and uncluttered spaces that are emphasized by modern home architects and modern home design. Here are a few favorite SSDB modern residence project highlights:
- Modern Tudor – Glencoe
- Mid-Century Modern and Green – Wilmette
- Cohesive Modern Renovation – Highland Park
- Modern Pool House – Wilmette (in progress)
- Modern Urban Townhouse – Chicago

Modern design refers to the specific time period from the early to mid-twentieth century. The style is a precursor to contemporary design, with key figures including Le Corbusier, Charles and Ray Eames, and Florence Knoll. The inception of modern design happened at the peak of the modern art movement, informed by Scandinavian and German Bauhaus design. The distinct style focused on simple form and function, which are valued as equals under this style. Think earthy palettes, natural materials like wood, leather, and stone, and streamlined silhouettes.
From modern design came mid-century modern (which was developed in, you guessed it, the 50s and 60s), although in the interior design world the term “modern” often encompasses both.
We would be happy to take you on a tour through some of our modern homes in the North Shore suburbs. Please contact us, and we’ll get something on the schedule.
“We planned on talking to three or four different builders and we met with Simpson and then we didn’t meet with anybody else.”

“Thank you for the thoughtful education all the way through the design and build. I daresay your standards were even higher than ours. We are so glad you were there to keep us on track, simplify everything and even bring joy into it all! This is probably unusual to say about a contractor – but we are thrilled to have taken this journey with you and to have made new friends as well as a new house.”

“I know I wrote you something after our final walk-through but seeing you here just now – offering your assistance a year and a half later – I just want to say thanks for making us feel like a priority even after our project was done. It’s the best “in” having picked you guys.”
