About Us

Searl Lamaster Howe is committed to realizing inspiring spaces for clients who value where they live, work, play, and learn. Each project is a unique opportunity with a distinct set of needs and aspirations. Client collaboration at each step of the design and construction process is key to the quality and inspiration of the office's work. A project's aesthetic is complemented and shaped by a detailed study of program, context, technology, and budget. The studio shares a commitment to creativity, innovation, sustainability, detail, and materiality. The firm portfolio includes residential, commercial and institutional projects that range from master planning to renovations to restorations to new construction. The office is a certified Female/Woman Business Enterprise (FBE/WBE) at the state and Chicago levels. In rankings of Chicago-based custom residential design firms, SLH regularly is in the top ten; more than once in the #1 spot. SLH has been graced with both local and national design awards. SLH's output has been featured by platforms ranging from Dwell to Architectural Digest to the New York Times. The firm works nationally and abroad and is formally licensed in several states. Chicago is our homebase but we have established physical outposts in both Wisconsin and Michigan.
