At Scott Simpson Design + Build, we have more than 30 years of experience creating new construction custom homes as well as significant green homes, historic preservation, additions and luxury remodels in and around the North Shore. Our unified team of North Shore home remodeling designers, architects and builders specialize in delivering cohesive additions and whole-house remodels that bring new functionality to the home.

Our forward-thinking approach can help problem solve flow, especially in older homes, on narrower lots and in vertical urban architecture. We specialize in creating first-floor primary bedrooms; providing larger, more modern kitchens and updated primary baths; creating more dedicated office and study spaces; broadening outdoor entertainment areas and wrapping porches; repurposing basements with in-home gyms and theaters – and adding more natural light throughout the home with each effort. We have even had several clients build a second time with us as they have added more children or become empty-nesters!


As award-winning experts in historic preservation, our home remodeling designers and architects take great pride in our ability to restore the precise details of a home such as a mock Tudor façade, hand-carved wooden stairs, leaded glass or even Greek revival columns. Paired with deep experience in eco-conscious green building, our additions and remodels make a space as smart as it is beautiful. We will always endeavor to maintain continuity between the past and present while updating the spaces for modern living.


After years of bringing our devoted craftsmanship to North Shore additions and remodels, we believe we have the right combination of experience, references, and resources to deliver on the vision for the next version of your home. We will usher you through the process – from concepting to designing to permitting to budgeting and constructing – all covered by our 3-year warranty.

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. 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. 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 additions and remodeling projects in Winnetka and Hubbard Woods, Chicago, Lake Forest, Glencoe, Glenview, Highland Park, Kenilworth, Wilmette and Northbrook.

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