GREENE & PROPPE DESIGN, INC. is dedicated to the art of Architecture and Interior Design. Thom Greene, Architect, and Rick Proppe, Interior Designer, founded the firm in 1980.


Since that time, GPD has completed numerous award-winning commercial, residential, and exhibit design projects. These designs range from small-scale projects such as historically sympathetic residential additions, to large-scale, million-dollar residential and commercial renovations.


Regardless of the project size, our design work is characterized by an approach to "honest architecture." Our projects are designed to enhance, rather than overpower their surroundings with keen attention to detail of form, material, and color.

Located in Chicago's Historic Edgewater Neighborhood
