Leslie Markman-Stern is designing an accessible exterior ramp for a high rise building on North Lake Shore Drive in Chicago for greater accessibility for the residents with special needs. Last week she completed a residential renovation project on a multi-million dollar Lincoln Park home renovating guests rooms with all the amenities for a hotel experience. She also completed an accessible sanctuary in a house of worship on the North Side of Chicago. Finally she has finished a job in Glenview specifying the exterior finishes for the Princeton Club’s property to update and beautify 88 homes.

  • Full service commercial design for all types of businesses
  • Health and well-being design for workplace and residential
