We are Lingle Design Group, Inc., a full-service architectural design firm since 2000, specializing in design for start-up and nationally-recognized restaurants and retail brands. We are a trusted architectural adviser consistently delivering innovative design solutions, committed to design excellence and client service.
Having spent over 20 years working as an architect and construction professional within the food service and retail construction industries, Carl Lingle formed Lingle Design Group in 2000 in Lena, Illinois.
Originally housed in a former bank building on Main Street in downtown Lena, Illinois (located west of Chicago), Lingle Design initially focused on providing drafting and architectural construction documents. Fast forward to the present and an expanded list of services which included site checks and surveys, design renderings and concepts, branding and new concept rollouts, and construction administration, the Lingle Design team had grown to more than 30 employees and required a move to larger office space.
In true architectural fashion with plenty of challenges, two old side-by-side downtown buildings were purchased, one of which was the town’s hospital more than 50 years ago. The extensive renovation resulted in a very functional upstairs office space which highlights the character of both the building and its occupants!
