When the Detail Counts
The background of the two partners...
Celebrating over 20 years in business...

Owners Jeannette Frieh Graziano and Richard Olsen bring their life-long passion for home design to every project. Their homes have been recognized for well-balanced design, functional flowing interiors and simple beauty.

With a background in design, history, theory and structures, and a personal, holistic approach to each home design, Jeannette and Richard’s designs inspire and excite.

Both are members of the Association of Licensed Architects (ALA). They are also licensed architects in the State of Illinois and both are graduates of the School of Architecture at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. Importantly, they live and work in the neighborhoods that they serve, demonstrating their committment to community.

G.O. Architectural Design was founded in 1989.

At G.O. Architectural Design, we have based our reputation on incorporating well-balanced design, custom details, and innovative solutions that are at the foundation of creating a beautiful home.

Our home interiors are created to reflect the lifestyle and vision of the home owner. Exteriors are designed to compliment the environment and community where the home will be located. Our involvement in the construction process with frequent jobsite inspections ensures that your home is being built exactly according to plan.

When the project is complete, you will see why we continually repeat “When the Detail Counts”. As you live in your new home, some details become almost invisible because they work effortlessly. Other details hold the spotlight and require your enjoyment. Count each one as important — we do.

Our goal is your total satisfaction, providing you with custom designs for your exceptional residence.
