MARK ERIC BENNER – ARCHITECTS
uniquely personal living and working spaces
new homes | whole house remodels | major additions
Welcome to Mark Eric Benner – Architects, Ltd. (MEBA) a Northbrook residential architecture firm. My service to Chicago’s Northshore communities began in 1995 with more than 30 years experience in the architectural and construction industries. It is my mission to create emotionally responsive spaces, harmoniously integrated with one another.
Solving spatial puzzles and problems is my passion. My clients are free to consider how their home will feel and serve their needs. They are led through the design, step by step while my team and I handle all the details. How your home feels to you is of utmost importance.
Questions Reveal the Design
The design of your home begins by asking questions, lots of questions. While some may be simple or obvious, others dig to a greater depth of understanding. There will be questions which you may not have yet contemplated.
Success is the result of understanding the WHY. This is especially true when designing your home. As a result, this exploration gives purpose to the spaces within your home. Finally, I translate these concepts into the organized spaces that respond to the way your family lives.
We Live in Three Dimensions – Don’t Settle for Less
Do not allow your home to be designed in two dimensions (alone.) Your home is more complex than can be described with two-dimensional floor plans. Therefore, I use a three-dimensional drawing and design experience. This experience is integrated immediately into the design process to promote your understanding and confidence in the design. This is so crucial, that I use it for every home’s design. As a result, your design experience, and most importantly your home, will exceed your every expectation.
Come Have a Look
You may want to see how this has been applied for my clients. I invite you to browse my Projects for examples of past new homes, kitchens, baths, whole-house renovations and much more.
Next, gather your questions, notes, sketches and clippings and Contact Me to begin the conversation. I look foward to working together on the design of your home. There are many considerations that go into selecting your architect for the design of your home.
In conclusion, I have prepared a guide “Selecting the Right Architect for your Luxury Home” to outline eight crucial considerations. Clients use this guide to better understand the what goes into designing their home. They find that it helps to refine their thoughts and prepare for this important decision.
