Welcome to Nia

Nia Architects, Inc. is a Chicago based architecture firm with demonstrated expertise in architecture, interior design, and construction management. The firm draws its name from an African word meaning purpose. Purpose has become the mantra for our firm and serves as the basis for how we approach design: "with purpose". Each project begins with a clear sense of direction and aims to meet the vision our clients have through well conceived and innovative design solutions, resulting in on-time and on-budget projects. Our project experience ranges from Education (Pre-K through 12 and Higher Ed), Parks and Recreations, Municipal, Commercial and Residential. Many of which we have received honor and recognition.
