At Atelier Azara, design is the subject for inquiry and exploration. We endeavor to expand the repertoire of imagined outcomes through investigative material research, inventive application of emergent technologies, and keen observations of both our natural habitat and built environment. We aim to expand and coalesce a multidisciplinary approach to creating heuristic design solutions that affect positive change in a dynamic world.

Taking cues from culturally diverse traditional design processes, Atelier Azara enjoys animating debate with dogma forged by intense rigor, infectious curiosity and a healthy dose of both premeditated optimism and pragmatic skepticism. Our expectations must be high - maintaining the viability of life require as much. We look forward to developing design projects and strategies that encompass a singular aesthetic attitude imbued with technical assurance and far reaching applicability.

By challenging conventions, rejecting at times while transcending in others, we hope to create alternative possibilities not yet devised or deployed. Our scope of interest embraces a wide range of building types, planning scales and design disciplines such as interiors, furniture, products, branding and material investigations. We intend to offer ourselves as incubators of catalytic change and purveyors of holistic solutions. Drawing from the rich architectural legacy of Chicago, our aim will focus on local projects but manifest in activities and discoveries towards maximizing global impact.

AZARA meaning “Refuge” or “Shelter” in Sanskrit, established the launching platform in the development of this architectural practice. Atelier Azara, calls Chicago home and represents a renewed sense of vision and prosperity at a time when the world’s economic condition is at its lowest in decades. Rich of multiple expertise, the atelier is a partnership between two architects passionate about the peculiarities and challenges unique to design. With a combined 35+ years of professional practice with award winning architectural design firms in the city of Chicago, this venture was an obvious progression. The principals have a combined portfolio of building projects ranging in all types and sizes among various sectors, all completed nationally and internationally.

Atelier Azara aims to explore and engage distinctive qualities of architecture with a contemporary approach while, respecting with poise, the branded historic. Creative solutions that are responsible and possess aesthetic merit are major objectives that provide the opportunity to take a fresh look at new ideas enthusiastically. We value the research approach and an intensive analysis of practical as well as theoretical issues forming the driving forces of design. At the core, we are committed to the idea of collaborative teamwork throughout the design progression and emphasize upon input from all parties engaged. Read Less
