Robert V. Sierzega, AIA
Senior Associate

Rob joined the firm in August 2017. He received a Bachelor of Architecture in Architectural Design from the University of Illinois at Chicago. After working for a few architectural firms in Chicago, he opened his own firm, which he ran for 25 years. He has varied experience in designing for residential and commercial renovations, new construction, space planning, life safety, and interior design. Rob strives to work closely with clients to provide them with the best possible design within their budget.

He has been active with AIA Chicago and their “Working with an Architect” public outreach program for many years, a long-time member of the LGBT Chamber of Commerce of Illinois, coordinated the design of The Legacy Walk plaques to attach to the Rainbow Pylons on Halsted, and continues as a member of the St. Gertrude Parish Building & Grounds committee.  

  

Born and raised on the southeast side in a classic Chicago bungalow. The youngest of four, Rob got bored with the buildings that came with his brothers train sets, so he designed and built his own. That started his interest in architecture. He now lives a in a 1913 vintage condominium in Edgewater.  He enjoys hanging out with his partner, Rick, cooking, bicycling, square dancing with Chi-Town Squares, gardening, live theatre & music, traveling, photography, politics, and Lake Michigan.  Oh, and an occasional walk up a high-rise for charity.
