Alexander Patsavas Architecture is an Architect-Led Design + Build firm in the North Shore and Chicago focused on an integrated approach to design, construction, landscape, cabinetry, home technologies and green building methods.  


A high degree of personal attention to our client’s lifestyle needs and desires, joined with versatility in classic, historic and contemporary design styles, allows Alexander to provide exceptional personalized service to make each unique vision a reality. 


Architecture Ethos

Personal Attention

Alexander Patsavas Architecture is selective in the number of projects we take on at any given time. When you commission us for your next project you can rest assured that you will receive only the highest level of personal attention. 

Alex personally oversees each project serving as your primary point of contact. Our clients are never handed off to staff allowing for a seamless transfer of your vision to the drawings boards and construction site. 

Efficient Operation 

Our goal is to ensure our clients are receiving the best value of service for their money. At Alexander Patsavas Architecture our business model is to operate with low overhead and pass the savings directly on to our clients and their projects. Why should a portion of your fees be spent on lavish offices and non-essential staff? 

We accomplish more with less by operating slim, allocating our resources only to your project, using cutting-edge technologies, communication and business practices to see that your money goes into your project.


At Alexander Patsavas Architecture we utilize the latest 3D modeling, BIM (building information modeling), 3D printing and software technology to provide our clients with accurate and realistic representations of our designs. Our expertise allows rapid production and presentations of multiple 3D iterations of your project, allowing for your full understanding and satisfaction of the design well before the finished result.

Our clients are global travelers - and we can be too. Communication and productivity is key. Outfitted with mobile client software, teleconferencing capabilities and live construction cameras, you will never be far from your project wherever your travels may take you.
