Gregory Howe, AIA

Greg is an award-winning architect who oversees projects from inception through completion. He is responsible for the design and construction administration of projects ranging from modest home additions to large-scale commercial projects. He approaches his work with a strong analytical and creative impulse and is noted for projects that are uniquely tailored to the specific needs of a client and context. Prior to forming SLH, Greg gained experience in the realms of both urban design and historic preservation. A tenure in the office of a developer provided a valuable opportunity to see the construction process from a different perspective. Greg received a Bachelors in Economics with a minor in Architectural History from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. At the same campus he went on to earn a Master of Architecture degree, focusing on urban design. In addition to being licensed in Illinois and Wisconsin, Greg is a LEED Accredited Professional. He currently serves as co-chair of the Chicago chapter of the Custom Residential Architects Network of the American Institute of Architects and and sits on the board of a Mies van der Rohe designed residential community, advising on preservation and sustainability concerns. He has served as a guest lecturer, visiting critic, and competition jurist at the University of Illinois. He also recently served as a jurist for the annual AIA Redwood Empire chapter’s design awards and participated in the Chicago Architects in Schools program. His work with SLH was featured in the last two Chicago Architecture Biennials as well as the Daniel Burnham Chicago Plan Centennial Exhibition. He has presented at design-centered events sponsored by the American Institute of Architects, the Chicago Architecture Center, and the Merchandise Mart. Projects he has led have been awarded both locally and nationally and have been featured by multiple publications including Dwell, Architectural Digest, Elle Italia, Architect Magazine, Luxe Interiors & Design, Modern Luxury, and Architizer.
