Founded in 1993, Kipnis Architecture + Planning (KAP) is based in Evanston, Illinois. The firm's scope of work encompasses design work. Complimenting a reputation for excellence in design, Kipnis Architecture + Planning specializes in a wide range of environmentally responsive residential projects, commercial designs and sustainable community planning.
KAP is also well known for their thoughtful architectural integration for historic homes and other significant projects in the Chicago area. This challenging work ranges from seamless additions and renovations to full historic restorations, with many homes 130-years old or more. In addition to aesthetic and structural restoration, mechanical systems can be updated throughout while maintaining their distinct vintage character. Many projects have successfully met the requirements for the State of Illinois Historic Preservation Agency's tax Assessment freeze program.
The firm's commitment to affordable housing is evidenced by their unique position as the only firm in Chicago to be involved with the 'New Homes for Chicago' program, 'Scattered Site Housing', 'Green Homes for Chicago' program, the 'Green Bungalow Initiative' and the 'Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP2)'.
