About Us

Established in 2011, HKS Chicago provides award-winning design services in the health, commercial, residential, hospitality, mixed-use, sports, aviation and education markets. Because we believe that design should improve the health and well-being of our city, we collaborate with community organizations including the Chicago Public Schools and the Illinois Green Alliance. Our own office, which we designed to become the first WELL gold certified design firm in Chicago, also reflects our commitment to a healthy city. To foster strong relationships with regional design schools, we host an annual Design Fellowship.
