What my clients are saying
FROM A CHICAGO/GEORGIA CLIENT (Husband)
“...My wife and I have hired Chris twice, the first time for a complicated and extensive remodel, the results are spectacular! Recently we hired Chris to design our retirement home in Georgia. The innovative approach to getting all our ideas into a home we'll love and still can afford is exactly why we've come to rely on Chris! We've recommended him to others and everyone thanks us for the endorsement!
FROM A CALIFORNIA CLIENT
“...Chris has been a very refreshing improvement from our prior experience with architects. He handles his responsibilities with ease, experience and professionalism that instills confidence in what can easily become stressful circumstances. We would not hesitate to use Chris on other projects.
- Jim Studer
FROM A CARPENTRY CONTRACTOR
“...Christopher ia an excellent Architect with an incredible eye for design and detail. His vision for a home comes not only from his extensive knowledge of building and design; he is able to understand the needs of his clients. He has the ability to transform the desires of a potential homeowner into a home of their dreams. Plus we love building from such clear construction documents!
- Mike Skinner
FROM A HOME CUSTOM BUILDER CLIENT
“...Chris is an outstanding architect, one with vast creativity, a great eye for design, and breath of knowledge that seems endless. My firm has engaged Chris on numerous projects, the results of which have been a joy to complete. His work defines spaces that transcend the vanilla box and feel great to be in and his exterior designs are second to none. Working with Chris is a great experience!
FROM A CHICAGO CLIENT w/ A BIG FAMILY
“...We hired Chris to Design and Build our home. I had many, many ideas for Chris to incorporate into the project. He was very, very patient with us. The end product is Outstanding!
As I recall the Eickenberger's required 5 to 6 bedrooms
-William "Ike" Eichenberger
FROM A DENTIST / CUSTOM HOME CLIENT
“...Two years have passed since you and I teamed up to create our dental office in Franklin Park. Our building has received tremendous community recognition including "Building of the Year"from the Chamber of Commerce. The space has really created an enthusiam with our staff and patients. This has stimulated productivity allowing Mary Ann and I to purchase property to build our new home.
I am hoping you will accept our invitation to team up once again.
FROM A DENTAL OFFICE CLIENT
“...I want to thank you for the wonderful job you did for us. Our new office is functioning very smoothly. The flow pattern and storage system have made our office much more efficient. A day does not go by without a patient or a delivery person telling us it's the nicest dental office they have ever seen. Our current patients enjoy telling their neighbors about our beautiful office and as a result our new patient numbers have doubled.
Thanks again for all of your hard work.
FROM A CUSTOM HOME CLIENT
“...We really enjoyed being with you Friday night. As you know we are very happy with our new home - thanks to the creative efforts of Chris and "the team". We opened the Lynfred Merlot and it's one of the best we've had. Thank-you so much for the gift!
FROM A CUSTOM HOME CLIENT
“...We want to thank you for designing such a beautiful home. Your "special touches" made such a difference. We'd love to have you over to see the finished product. Happy Holidays to you and your family.
FROM A CUSTOM HOME CLIENT
“...Thanks for all of your hard work - I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the city doesn't send back the plans to make changes - we'll see. Enjoy your trip south.
FROM A CHICAGO/GEORGIA CLIENT (Wife)
“...I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for bringing my dream to life. Your design for our project was impeccable and the final product is nothing but amazing. I can assure you that we have had many wonderful compliments as friends and family have seen our home. I appreciated all the way through the building process, your patience and ability to work with a perfectionist! You and David (Krupp) were both great to work with. I also appreciated the decisions that you had to make as we went through the process and you were always right. I know that Ken joins me in saying that we highly recommend you to anyone who is considering building a home or doing an addition/remodel in both the design and building aspects. Thanks again Chris, for creating a home that I love and am thankful for every day.
Matt Freeman - Avaloft Builders
We have since completed a new home for the Nichols in Georgia
FROM A SALON REMODEL CLIENT
“...Thank you so much for your time, especially on a holiday. I could not have completed this project without your help. Ted worked out great (just as you said he would!) I am so happy in the new place; again I could not have accomplished this without you.
FROM A REMODEL/REBUILD CLIENT
“...We have to tell you how pleased we are with the home you designed for us. It's a beautiful, workable home and we get compliments to this day. You really should come to see how your design turned out. Just call, you are more than welcome. Thank you so much for turning our misfortune (house fire) around and giving us a home to be proud of.
- Bob and Alice Inc
FROM TWO ARCHITECTURAL STUDENTS
“...Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to spend the day with you and your colleagues. We really appreaciated you giving up a portion of your day for us to experience a day in the life of an architect. We were amazed by your creativity and determination. We are still in awe of the amazing pictures you showed us, and all of the work you have accomplished. You really motivated us to work harder towards our dreams of obtaining a career, and not just a job.
FROM AN ADDITION/REMODEL CLIENT
“...We are still enjoying the finished product immensely. Thanks so much for all of your work on our project. Nobody can believe we had such a positive experience. Isn't that a sad statement on the whole topic of home improvement? I still say you get what you pay for. If you are more interested in getting "a deal" as opposed to a quality product you will pay for it in the end. Enough of my pontificating......hope this finds you in good health personally and Krupp Assoc. booked solid for the summer.
FROM AN ADMIRER
“...I have been admiring your beautiful home for the past couple of years whenever I drive on Winfield Rd. Would you consider sharing the name of your architect with me? (That's me, it's my house). My husband and I are planning on building our retirement home out on the Rock River in the next couple of years and we are looking for an architect to guide our dreams. Please have your architect call me if you have no issue.
-Peggy and Charlie Govern
Doug laughingly pointed out that everything was perfect, with one exception...the outlet on the deck was out of place by a foot!
FROM ONE OF OUR MOST LOYAL BUILDER CLIENTS, GLADSTONE BUILDERS
“...Gladstone Homes and Christopher Krupp of Krupp Associates Architects have worked together for nearly 30 years, In this time, we've constructed over 1300 single family and multifamily homes. The key to any successful building program is the use of competent, professional and reliable subcontractors; Krupp Associates hits each of these qualities with high marks. The construction permitting process is nearly effortless due to the quality of the drawings and, if minor alterations are needed, they're made quickly and thoroughly. Krupp Associates' plans and details and very clear which practically eliminates running into "interpretation" issues in the field. Also, the clarity and thoroughness represented on Krupp's drawings greatly facilitate accurate and efficient bidding from our subcontractors.
Last, but certainly not least are the designs. Over the years we have designed dozens of different plans to keep up with the current housing trends and to maintain a value added factor. We would not have sold so many homes without great design!
I would confidently recommend Krupp Associates for any architectural needs you may have.
