About Us

HPZS is a full service, 100% woman-owned architectural firm complemented by unique and specialized experience at the nexus of adaptive reuse, historic preservation, sustainable design, and affordable housing. Since our inception in 1976, we have received numerous national, state, and local awards for our work, and we look to the future with a focus on continuing to provide our clients the most sustainable outcomes with a palate of services in support of integrated and energy-efficient design. Our work ranges from numerous projects at Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry, the redevelopment of the sixteen building, 800-unit Chicago Housing Authority’s Dearborn Homes, the restoration of the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Dana Thomas House Museum in Springfield, Illinois to the Yannell PHIUS Residence - the Midwest's first certified Passive House renovation. We pride ourselves on our genuine interest and expertise in preserving and acknowledging our shared history, but also giving new purpose to existing buildings through technology so that they may continue to enhance the urban fabric. At HPZS, we align ourselves with our clients' missions to understand their unique needs, work collaboratively to develop a shared vision delivering thorough and creative design solutions, and work to Preserve a Sustainable Future for the built environment and the diverse Chicago community we call home; but we also aim to put our values into practice. We champion a culture of equity, diversity, inclusion and generosity in our firm and through our work product, by supporting minority and women owned businesses in consultant team collaborations, and hiring and promoting through a DEI/BIPOC lens, and contributing our firm's financial and volunteer efforts in the support of promoting under-served populations.
