About Us

Who We Are

Design Studio C, Ltd. was founded in 1998 to offer professional architectural services that cater to entrepreneurial clients. Over the years, we have designed hundreds of projects throughout the collar counties around Chicago, Illinois as well as southeastern Wisconsin, and built a select few over the years before discontinuing Construction Management Services in 2016. We have worked with company founders to expand their businesses, landlords improving their buildings for tenants, restauranteurs moving into new locations, dentists, doctors, auto recyclers, contractors, investors, developers, and not-for profit companies. During this time, we have developed relationships with lenders, contractors, consultants, and municipalities, to help your project run smoothly.

We also use our architecture and development skills to help our community. Michael Edgar founded the Greater Waukegan Development Coalition, a not-for-profit real estate development company in 2012 in order to foster business and real estate development in the Greater Waukegan area. Irene Edgar served on the Design Committee of Waukegan Main Street from 2005-2015 (plus a 3 year stint as a Board Member), a term on the Development Board of the Friends of the Historic Genesee Theatre, and is a Committee Member of the Ray Bradbury Experience Museum, a program of the GWDC.

How does that help you? All of this experience means that we have probably worked on similar projects to your needs, and if we don’t know the answer, we probably know someone who does.
