What sets Krueck Sexton Partners apart is our ability to realize a project's hidden potential. We leverage its competing elements and constraints to create opportunities to increase impact and value.

Taking the client's goals and budget as our own, we bring to every project both curiosity and a breadth of insight from across an intentionally diverse body of work.

The result is environments that fulfill client needs and support their aspirations and elevate the human experience.

The firm was founded in Chicago in 1981 and is grounded in the pragmatism and clarity of the city's architectural heritage. Wherever our work takes us, we are committed to using design to address some of the greatest challenges of our day.

We love what we do.
We check our egos at the door, approaching our work, clients, and each other in a spirit of openness and possibility.

This drives the choices we make — including the diversity of our portfolio, our commitment to the city of Chicago, and our advocacy of the Architecture 2030 goal to mitigate climate change.

Environmental Stewardship
KSP is an early adopter of the 2030 Commitment, which requires participants in the building industry to track climate-friendly design practices and pushes them to integrate increasingly efficient, renewable, and innovative energy systems.

We help clients pursue environmental excellence in their project, meeting our own goals and the programs our clients would like to meet, including LEED certification.

Culture for creativity.
Whether in the office or online, our interactions and practices are a dynamic place for discourse where design issues are openly debated.

We empower each other and share ideas to design meaningful, resilient spaces.

Deep Bench | Bright Designers
