Box Design Studio
10 E. 11th St.
Kevin Fox was a real estate developer before earning his master’s degree in architecture from the Illinois Institute of Technology in 2001. Now he is designing and developing his own projects, as well as selectively taking on some private clients. “It’s easier for me to sink my teeth into a project when the client comes to me without any preconceived ideas or emotional attachment to their own design solution,” he says. He designed his own three-bedroom loft condo in the South Loop, complete with an interior atrium and a green roof.
