Award-winning architect Doug Reynolds founded Reynolds Architecture Design & Construction in 1995 with a solid philosophy: to design architecturally significant homes and ensure superior construction. By building a team of dedicated professionals with attention to detail matching his own, Doug has designed an impressive portfolio of spectacular homes across Chicago’s North Shore and beyond. We have had the sincere pleasure of working with Doug and team to illuminate some of their latest masterpieces, which we are thrilled to share with you today!

Double walnut doors, marble floors and a Darlana Medium Lantern by E.F. Chapman make for a grand entry in a Winnetka, IL residence designed and built by the Reynolds team. A dramatic, 20-foot tall window provides a backdrop for the dramatic stair hall featuring Darlana Wall Lanterns by E.F. Chapman.
One of the many ways Reynolds Architecture Design and Construction raises the bar is their custom millwork and cabinetry capabilities. The architectural woodwork, moulding and trim seen throughout their work is fabricated by a team of in-house designers and craftsmen, ensuring flawless execution from start to finish. In the sun-filled family dining area, a Crystal Stacked Ball Hanging Shade by E.F. Chapman hangs from a custom stained and painted v-groove ceiling. Chelsea Medium Reflection Sconces by E.F. Chapman add accent light over the sideboard.
Doug’s design aesthetic is inspired by Classical European and American Traditional architecture styles infused with modern details. The clean lines and polished nickel finish of the Osborne Lanterns by E.F. Chapman bring contemporary appeal to the beautiful master bedroom.
Cross Bouillotte Small Sconces by E. F. Chapman light his-and-hers vanities on either side of a freestanding tub in the luxurious master bathroom.
Doug’s exquisite craftsmanship is on display throughout this lakefront residence in Barrington Hills, IL. The gourmet kitchen features custom cabinetry, hand-painted tile and a pair of Ruhlmann Hanging Shades by E.F. Chapman lighting the island.
The team’s expertise in all aspects of the design-build process ensures every home they construct or renovate lives up to its full potential. In the breakfast room adjacent to the kitchen, the placement of floor-to-ceiling windows allows for scenic views of the lake. The timeless Ruhlmann Large Chandelier by E.F. Chapman hangs above the table in this casual dining space.
Their fine attention to each client’s individual needs results in truly unique and useful spaces. For this client, a well-organized gift wrapping room was on the wish list! A Katie Globe Pendant by Thomas O’Brien hangs above the elegant wrapping desk with ample storage and rods for conveniently holding rolls of paper.
