Click to Explore the Elements Way


Elements Architectural Group is an Architecture and Design firm located in Oak Park, IL. Included in our award-winning portfolio are residential projects, home remodels, restaurant design, breweries, retreat and resort projects. We’ve built a reputation on client and site responsive design solutions that are experientially rich, finely detailed, unexpected and always beautiful.

Our Unique Approach

Through our experience in over 300 projects, we’ve come to categorize design considerations into three segments or leaves—Art, Science, and Economics. At the intersection of these three leaves is the heart of our work. By considering the entire picture simultaneously, continuously and collaboratively, we fully engage in making your project a success. Critical thought, creative insight, design rigor, experience, industry connections and continuous pursuit of a building’s higher purpose—that’s The Elements Way

Unparalleled Customer Service

Our group was founded in 2006 by William Scholtens to revolutionize the way architects and clients interact. With wild curiosity and deep, careful listening, we work to establish a unique story-telling design to fit each family or business. Rather than dictate our vision, we collaborate with each and every one of our clients to curate a one-of-a-kind, luxury residential or commercial space.
