Social, economic, and environmental impact by design

We harness the invisible forces impacting a project, from politics to climate to culture, as a visible trajectory through architecture.

Latent Design is a progressive architecture firm and strategic urban design consultant with a commitment to community development in Chicago. Our highly collaborative process of define-design-deploy allows us to fully integrate all aspects of project into a comprehensive implementation strategy. We offer innovative design solutions to those in resource and budget limited environments by leveraging local assets to generate project opportunities. Our collaborations range from small-scale tactical interventions, new construction community buildings, adaptive reuse commercial and residential spaces, to neighborhood master plans and design speculations. 

We create vibrant spaces to live, work, and play.
