Licensed Architect, AIA, NCARB, Partner
Continuing his father’s commitment to high-quality work and impeccable customer service, Victor draws from an extensive knowledge of both traditional and contemporary architecture and design.
The key to being a good architect, he says, is being a great listener. By listening carefully, he can fully understand a client’s vision. From there, he can apply his creative and artistic talents to bring a project to life.
Victor has designed more than 300 projects in the past 25 years, bringing energy and enthusiasm to each and every one, whether it’s a remodeled room in a ranch home, a historic building, or a newly constructed luxury estate.
During the design process, Victor visualizes a space’s potential and then uses his creativity to design multiple concepts to present to clients, allowing them to choose what they like best. Even though it’s more time-consuming, he prefers this method so there are no regrets, and the project ends up being all the clients dream it will be.
For home additions and remodeling work, Victor follows a rule his father, Jeremy, taught him: It can’t look like an addition. The look must be seamless, so it’s impossible to tell where the original house ended and the new space begins.
Victor earned a degree in architecture from The Ohio State University, and after graduation, joined his father’s firm. He is a licensed architect in Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Florida, NCARB certified, and approved by the City of Chicago for its Self-Certification program and as a Registered Energy Professional. Over the past three decades, Victor, his father, and his brother Robert, who oversees construction, have built Jeremy Lew & Associates into one of the Chicago area’s most sought-after architect and design firms for both residential and commercial construction.
A married father of three, Victor spends his free time running, playing guitar, skiing, and volunteering at the Greater Chicago Food Depository, where he serves as an ambassador.
