SCB is an architecture, interior design, and planning firm that practices nationally from offices in Chicago and San Francisco. Since 1931, SCB has made a lasting impact on the nation’s skyline, campuses, and neighborhoods, helping our clients across the country achieve their goals, serve their constituencies, and make their mark.
Our approach is to ask questions, listen, and apply our industry-leading standards and progressive creative vision to determine the best design response for each project. For us, context is key, inventiveness is crucial, and user comfort is king.
Our diverse practice includes multi-family residential, urban planning, commercial, hospitality, retail, corporate office, higher education, laboratory, and transportation projects. Our team is nimble, creative, and efficient. Our designs are responsive, responsible, and distinctive. We’ve won awards, but we’re not willing to rest on our laurels. We’re future-oriented, continually challenging ourselves to design to a higher standard, innovate at every level, and give our clients more through our commitment to elevated design.
SCB Design Principles
Every project begins with a conversation. We work closely with our clients to understand their goals and interpret their vision.
Our designs combine artistic expression with technical rigor, integrating sustainability and vision to create solutions that uniquely suit our clients’ needs.
A project isn’t successful until it’s delivered successfully. Our team has developed a strong reputation for seamless project management that ensures projects are delivered on time and on budget.
Real design solutions inspire. SCB’s work is tangible, and our projects strive to make positive contributions to people’s lives and the urban fabric.
