Recognized as Chicago’s premier award winning sustainable architectural practice, Kipnis Architecture + Planning (KAP) was founded in 1993 and is based in Evanston, Illinois. KAP has practiced the architectural design philosophy of ‘High Design/Low Carbon™’ long before it was in vogue. We are guided by the idea that architectural design excellence need not be sacrificed for principles of sustainability. Rather, we believe sustainable design expands the possibilities for innovative architectural forms, construction methods and the use of materials. A particular expertise is the architectural integration of passive solar and bioclimatic design. We are early signatories to the AIA’s 2030 Commitment, rigorously working towards having our projects be ‘net zero’ for their energy use by 2030.
The idea to develop this philosophy into practice is the culmination of over 30 years of research and development by award winning architect Michael Kollman. Michael not only is an architect but he is a master builder, advocate and educator for smarter ways to design, build and live. He is passionate about his work to make thoughtful, sustainable design affordable for everyone. With his firm, Wexler/Kollman P.C., Ltd., he specializes in sustainable design including single family homes, historic restoration and commercial projects of all types and size. He is also a consultant for builders, owner/developers and municipalities on sustainability, historic preservation and the development process.
