Over his 15 years with the firm, Luke has evolved from architectural assistant, to project coordinator, to a very effective project manager responsible for managing many of our important clients. He seeks to provide thoughtful and straightforward designs for projects of all types and scale resulting in memorable modern spaces evident in projects such as the award-winning adaptive reuse project at 3228 W. Palmer, Coeval - a two-tower apartment building, and 1400 S. Wabash - a currently under construction mixed-use high-rise building in Chicago’s South Loop.
