Bruce George, president and CEO of Charles Vincent George Architects, residential and commercial architects headquartered in Naperville, Illinois, has announced the addition of Timothy J. Kress, A.I.A. as senior project manager. He is responsible for all phases of residential CVG projects, from programming to construction administration.
Kress is a cum laude graduate of the University of Notre Dame. Over the past 20 years, he has worked on a variety of project types, styles and scopes in locations throughout the United States, with his greatest focus on luxury single-family homes. His portfolio includes a range of designs from Colonial and Georgian to Arts & Crafts, Farmhouse and French Provincial.
“Tim’s education and experience have fostered a love of historical American home styles. His design philosophy is focused on proportion and proper detailing, with the belief that beauty can be created in any style,” says Bruce George. “His dedication to assuring that design meets the needs of the homeowner while staying true to the particular vernacular follows the design philosophy we have followed for sixty years. Tim will be a great addition to our team.”
“I’ve long admired CVG as one of the best firms in Chicagoland, representing the highest standards in luxury residential design. I consider this firm the ultimate move in my career,” says Kress. “Residential design is a very personal experience for the homeowner — it’s not a transaction, it’s a reflection of their style and aspirations. The joy for me is guiding clients through the discovery of a design that is as visually stunning as it is fitted to their lifestyle. The end goal is a home that we all are proud of, and one that is genuine to the homeowners’ preferred style, not just a hodge-podge of ideas and details.”
Kress makes his home in the Chicago suburb of La Grange with his wife, Kathleen and four children. In the rare moments when he is not chasing the children around, he enjoys a variety of sports, as well as making improvements around their 1925 home.
