Our History

Ruggles Architecture has practiced Residential and Commercial Architecture for over two decades. Our firm has a broad base of building, planning and construction experience.  Located in Lake Forest, IL our practice has concentrated in the Chicago North Shore communities along with out-of-state work including vacation and second housing for our local clientele.
What’s New?
Bob and Monica Ruggles continue to lead the firm bringing their award-winning expertise to each project.
In addition to some fantastic residential remodeling projects in Lake Forest and Lake Bluff, we recently completed a new, custom lakefront home with amazing views in Wisconsin.  We were able to use our CAD program to obtain some impactful 3D models to help in the design process.
In the commercial architecture sector, Ruggles Architecture has recently been involved in feasibility studies for climate control storage facilities specializing in wine storage.  We also completed work on two new restaurant build-outs and a restaurant remodeling.
