FGM is an employee-owned, professional service firm with an emphasis on client service.  Our projects respond to the goals of our clients, the context of their sites, the environment that sustains them, and the communities they serve.  

We practice architecture and interior design.  Our projects touch all aspects of community life-learning, working, protecting, worshiping, and playing. Learning takes place in our education projects, from early childhood facilities through high schools to colleges and universities.  Working takes place in our public administration and private corporation facilities.  Protecting is the main purpose of our police and fire stations.  Worshiping takes place in our faith-based facilities, and playing occurs in our recreation centers, gymnasiums and aquatics centers.

Our portfolio of projects has earned the firm significant recognition and numerous awards.  We are particularly proud of the awards from client organizations, as they speak of our commitment to realizing their goals.  FGM has also been honored with the 2018 Northeastern Illinois Chapter of the American Institute of Architect's Distinguished Firm Award, recognizing our contributions to communities and to our profession.
