FR Review:
For modern, minimalist, sophisticated styles in both interior architecture and design, Powell/Kleinschmidt is considered high among the top firms in the area, as well as around the world. The firm splits work evenly between residential and commercial endeavors, and, in both cases, the modern classics it creates are seen by clients and the public as timeless designs, firmly rooted in Chicago's rich architectural heritage for early modernism. The firm is best known for its interior architecture for corporations and high-end residential clients.

This 18-person firm includes 10 architects and six interior designers, most of whom have more than ten years of experience. It was formed in 1976 and generally takes on between 20 to 25 projects each year. We hear the firm is excellent at minding subtle details, such as a generous use of fabric to absorb sound while also adding the warmth that makes an environment inviting. We are also told Powell/Kleinschmidt is extremely skilled at incorporating fine art and antiques into its interiors. The firm accepts a wide range of projects, from 500,000-square-foot office spaces to 2,000-square-foot residential apartments. A high level of quality and style is consistent with the firm, regardless of a project's size.

Not surprisingly, it enjoys a large percentage of repeat customers. It charges an hourly rate up to a pre-set maximum and establishes the budget prior to taking on a project. Insiders say Powell/Klienschmidt is conscientious in its provision of customer service, includes clients in frequent project meetings and returns phone calls promptly. HB 1998, 1999, 2000.
