  I apply 20 years of retail, workplace, and community development design experience to create exciting, memorable, and sustainable experiences for clients and their customers in local communities.

Brian Reno

Principal, Architecture

Chicago, Illinois

Brian is a leader in our national commercial architecture practice and has more than 20 years of experience in strategic retail distribution planning, site evaluation and selection, architecture, retail concept development, interior design, site development, construction administration, and multi-site project management. He leads our Financial Services Studio clients and has expertise in retail, restaurant, workplace, residential, mixed-use, health club, and medical facilities development.

A specialist in retail financial services and Fintech design and concepts, Brian enjoys applying his skills to the varied challenges of commercial programs to deliver on-time, well-designed, financially successful projects for his clients. He’s experienced with entitlements, zoning, and planning consulting, and he’s currently working on mixed use projects—shopping centers that mix workplace, retail, residential, and restaurants.

When he’s not working, his ideal free time is to be coaching youth lacrosse and leading the Barrington Youth Lacrosse Association.
