Mike Karkowski


During the course of his career, Michael has had the opportunity to work on a diverse range of project types, including educational buildings, residential developments, commercial offices, and healthcare facilities. With a wealth of architectural knowledge and a meticulous managerial style, Michael’s expertise makes him a model Associate. He guides our studio of design professionals through all aspects of a project.

Michael’s goal is to achieve client satisfaction through consistent communication, collaboration, and thoughtful attention to detail. His approach is intuitive and pragmatic, focusing on the technical aspects of design and environmentally-responsible sustainable design principles. He is preoccupied with centerlines and making building elements align; everything is better if it aligns with something else.

Michael is a Chicago native, with previous work experience at Booth Hansen Associates and Serena Sturm Architects. He is a Licensed Architect in Illinois, California, and Florida, and holds a certificate from the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards, is a LEED Accredited Professional, and a CSI Certified Documents Technologist. Michael holds a Master of Architecture degree from the Illinois Institute of Technology and Bachelor of Arts from the University of Illinois in Champaign. He is a member of the American Institute of Architects, the Construction Specifications Institute, and USGBC Illinois Chapter.

Mike spends his free time with his wife and daughter, and has occasionally been seen patching plaster walls in his vintage Mount Prospect home. Now and then, he tries to squeeze in a little late-night hockey.
