Uniquely Personal Living and Working Spaces

Welcome to Mark Eric Benner – Architects, Ltd., MEBA, a Chicago based architectural firm. Serving Chicago and north shore communities since 2007 with more than 23 years in the architectural and construction industries, we are excited to take on projects of all types including: homes, small and large; additions and renovations; and commercial & industrial projects. I strongly believe that there is no project that is too small for good design.[image source_type=”attachment_id” source_value=”665″]Sustainability is of great interest and is on the mind of most everyone these days. It has many varied meanings, and to me, sustainability means thoughtful and creative expression of space that considers its use and is sized appropriately for its activity. The whole must be greater than the sum of its parts. That is what makes uniquely personal living and working spaces.I embrace the responsibility of building integrity into every project. Transparency and collaboration are the hallmarks which lead to the very best spaces, representing the absolute best value.Service and communication IS our business. Our expertise in the application of advanced technologies, married with creative and unique design solutions is how we make great architecture.[picture_frame source_type=”attachment_id” source_value=”661″ align=”right”]We invite you to review our process to better understand how we can help you achieve your goals and dreams.Learn more about our servicesSee Our Work
