Our Manifesto

We create spaces that feel really good.
Let us help you brainstorm how to make your space better, pick finishes that compliment your style, and design places for you to love and live.

Our Story

DEW Design Company is a small residential architecture + design firm living and working in Chicagoland. Our founder, Ellen Whitehead AIA started DEW in 2020, and has over 10 years of experience in the industry. We've grown slowly, with a vision for creativity and flexibility in an architecture + design practice. We are now a small team of creatives who work hard to make our client's home dreams come to life.

We would love to help you brainstorm how to make your space better and pick finishes that compliment your style. Our design style is casual, comfortable, bold, and colorful. We always ensure we are bringing our client's taste to the table, enhancing their ideas, and creating incredibly usable spaces.
