FR Review:
John Eifler is known by clients, the media and his contemporaries as one of the most respected preservation architects in the Chicago area -- and beyond. Clients tell us his esteemed reputation as a preservationist cannot dilute the fact that Eifler & Associates is a versatile firm that delivers exquisite, forward-thinking, modernist design in addition to elegant historic restoration. Eifler, the sole principal of the firm, remains humble in light of the many awards he has received for his preservation work, according to clients. In fact, insiders say Eifler actually cringes at being labeled a preservation architect. They say he believes that historic preservation should be a normal and highly regarded practice, rather than a niche of architecture.

Although Eifler is extremely receptive to clients' input, clients say they trust his design and impeccable understanding of the prairie style, particularly with regard to historic renovations, and leave all planning in his hands. Eifler, FAIA, has been in business since 1990. With a staff of seven architects, the firm undertakes projects of all kinds including new single and multi-family home construction as well as commercial construction. The firm also takes on smaller projects. The bulk of the firm's business is spilt evenly between the city of Chicago and its suburbs.

Eifler's fees are on par with other leaders in the industry, and recent projects include a 5,500-square-foot new single-family home in Oak Brook and a large restoration project in Rhode Island. Clients highly recommend the firm and praise Eifler and his firm's services as worth every penny of its high-end price tag.

Representative Client Comments:
"Eifler is the only choice for authentic prairie architectural restoration." "The work and service was simply outstanding." "John and his staff can easily assimilate a complex problem and produce a very clear and comprehensive report." "Is his work quality the highest imaginable? I can imagine a lot -- and he came close."
