Liz Hayes

Elizabeth D. Hayes, RA, NCARB

Principal | LinkedIn

As the design lead in the office, Liz is never short on providing clients a signature design gesture for their project. Liz has worked for primarily small practices throughout her career, providing exposure to a wide range of typologies and strengthening her ability to wear many hats – often simultaneously.

Liz’s experience includes more than 10 years with a North Shore practice, with a primary focus on single-family residential and small commercial.

Liz received a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from Miami University and a Master of Architecture from Washington University. She maintains an active NCARB certificate and is a licensed architect in Illinois, North Carolina, and Ohio.

Ryan Hayes

M. Ryan Hayes, RA, NCARB

Principal | LinkedIn

Moving to Chicago in 2005, Ryan intended to work in the large-scale commercial sector but ended up choosing the opposite. Focusing on custom single-family and hospitality design, Ryan has served as project architect on numerous private and public works of notoriety. For the past eight years, he has promoted an architect-led design-build approach, using his knowledge of building construction to inform the design process.

Ryan graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Design from Clemson University and a Master of Architecture from Washington University. He is a licensed architect in Illinois, maintains an active NCARB certification and is a licensed general contractor in the City of Chicago.
