"2Scale Architects, architect Greg Swedberg, provided the combination of form, function and esthetic design to our comfortable contemporary home. He took into account the way we live and we now enjoy the use of all the areas of our home . He blended fresh ideas with timeless architectural features that show beautiful quality upon execution by the builder. He is a wonderful person to work with and made building a house a very positive and exciting experience . Anytime I am out in the yard at least one person stops to ask who designed our home and tell us it is their favorite home in our neighborhood, and I could not be more excited to refer them to 2Scale Architects, because I know they will have a wonderful experience!"
"Designing my home with Greg was a remarkable and rewarding experience. Greg made the design process enjoyable and gratifying. Greg is very incredibly creative. He balanced his keen artistic sense with practical, functional design. We began with a broad concept and a long wish list, he interpreted all of my needs and desires into a plan that resonates with his imagination and my vision. He had a great natural sense for what I wanted, with the ability to explore alternatives that might make the most sense for my lifestyle. He is also pleasantly open-minded. He often entertained my quirky ideas, many of which we enthusiastically implemented and some of which he graciously grounded me in reality. I especially appreciate his patience in teaching me about the design and build process. He made fantastic recommendations for designs and was available for many questions about resources and materials. He was instrumental in helping me select a builder. Even after completion, he is available for questions and resolving construction challenges. He is a friend." --
"After establishing our relationship with Greg to assist us in designing our home, we quickly became very confident in him as a professional. He has an ability to listen and formulate a plan that initially was just a dream. Greg’s excellent communication skills continued throughout the building process. He took tremendous pride in seeing the development of the structure we now call our home.”

"I really enjoyed working with Greg Swedberg. I thoroughly enjoyed the process from start to finish. Greg does a great job in making the process collaborative. He presented options along the way that made decision making easier. He obviously has a great deal of passion for what he does. He was creative, and he kept the project on schedule. The end result was a home that has exceeded our expectations.”
"Prior to our build, I had heard horror stories about the stress of the building process and made a commitment to myself that our build would be different. Well, without even sharing that affirmation with Greg, he instinctively made the process a joy. The combination of his professionalism, keen eye for detail, and affability made each meeting productive, creative, and fun. Greg gave me undivided attention, and the rooms he created for my family were unique. Greg’s detail work brought the project to another level."
"We chose to work with Greg based on his portfolio. After our first meeting he came back with a drawing that was just the look we were wanting. He listened to our wants and requests and did an excellent job communicating with us. His attention to detail is impressive and I highly recommend 2Scale Architects to anyone. Top notch work and speedy turnaround."
We interviewed three architects. Greg was the only one that asked us about our lifestyle, how we used our home. I knew right away he was the architect for us. It was an incredible process watching our ideas come alive. He understood our dream and how to make it a reality. Greg designed a beautiful house that flows well, no detail was too small. Not only is he a brilliant architect, Greg is also extremely professional, courteous and has a great sense of humor. We truly enjoyed working with him."
"Our working relationship with Greg was collaborative as he allowed us to explore different ideas, concepts and ultimately guidee us the home we built. I can not honestly give you any aspects that did not live up to our expectations. If anything, I feel as though we got more value out of the process than we compensated him for. Greg's patience with us as we explored an exhaustive number of concepts was endless and kept us from getting frustrated and discouraged through the process. He was a pleasure to work with, and if we ever build another house he will be the architect we hire to design it."
Greg made the process easy! From start to finish he worked in a 3 step process and broke down the schedule for us! We started from scratch on a new construction when I handed over my chicken scratch- hand drawn "plans." He listened to exactly what we needed with patience without ever making us feel like we were newbies! There were no surprises, and he made himself available in person on site to check the progress at designated times throughout the build. These perks were outlined in our initial agreement. He is detail oriented and took the time to point out any aspects he thought would improve our plans, and was very available to us in person, by phone, and email to hash out the many versions a big project takes. He was very careful to interpret the Deed Restrictions in our area (Oak Forest), and make sure the house was compliant in every way. I highly recommend his work and would use him again!"
