We hired Gary (G Chada Design Studio) after the original architect failed to grasp the “look” we were after (drawings and designs for an extensive lake house remodel). Gary was not only able to understand the concept that we wanted, he helped us see things in a way we never considered. He is very professional, a wonderful listener, and extremely creative.

We recently worked with G Chada Studios on an addition and remodel of our 1900 lake home. We could not have been happier. Gary Chada helped us through the approval process with the village, and everything turned out just as we had hoped. In fact, we have retained Gary to design the remodel of our coach house as well. We are extremely pleased with his plan. Gary is exceptionally easy to work with–and his professional fees are more than fair.

Gary was delightful to collaborate with, and he was an integral factor in landing a large historic renovation project on Chicago’s Gold Coast. He was prompt meeting deadlines and thorough in attention to detail. I look forward to working with Gary on the next project I acquire.

We highly recommend Gary. He did an amazing job on our two story addition! Gary is a personable, team player who took the time to understand what we were trying to achieve and our budget. He has a creative gift that allows him to deliver both functionality and beauty. We now have windows on both floors that take in a great view from every angle. We could not have had a better experience!

We purchased a 1950’s ranch home which was very dated. Out plan was take out some walls, move some doorways, etc. to create and open concept between the kitchen, living room and dining room. We had ideas on what we wanted, but were unsure if the layout would be possible or practical. We hired Gary to do a floor plan based on our ideas and asked for his input on the layout of the space. After viewing and measuring our home Gary shared his ideas on how he in visioned the space should be designed. He gave us options we had not even considered. We went with his plan and are very pleased we did. Gary also helped up with the lighting plan which made it so much easier when working with the electrical contractor. I would highly recommend Gary for your project!

Gary Chada delivered great results for the design of our 2nd level remodel. We had thought there wasn’t a way to add a bathroom and better closet space within our existing footprint. But Gary was able to create a great solution that fits the space and our style, while saving us the expense of adding a dormer. He went above and beyond to hear our needs and attend to details. I would highly recommend him!

Gary is an excellent architect. Working with him on various projects he listens to the clients needs and wants. He takes that information to heart and designs a vision for the client that hits their needs, wants and wishes. Love working with Gary!!

We hired G Chada to redesign a 1960’s ranch house for us. He turned it into an open concept family space, gave us a master suite and added a bedroom/den in the basement with a large window and walk‐ in closet. The celestial windows he suggested for the great room are one of our favorite aspects of our home. His pricing turned out to be just what he had estimated in the beginning, even with the many changes we made along the way. We’re thrilled with our “new” older home!

We used Gary’s services not once but twice. The first time we used Gary, he designed a large and very complex addition to our home. At that time we also received a design from a local large market designer…one of Gary’s competitors. The competitor’s design results were plain, while Gary’s design was knock your socks off awesome. We are still pleased with the entire project Gary did for us 9-years ago. Three years ago we used Gary’s design abilities again for a master bath remodel and once again he knocked our socks off with his design aptitude. We highly recommend Gary to anybody reading this.
