DORI BETANCUR RA, LEED AP

Architect at Studio BE Design inc.

Dori Betancur was born in Gdansk, Poland and has lived in Germany and United States. She earned her architectural degree with High Honors at Illinois Institute of Technology, where she was awarded the Plocieniak traveling scholarship and spent a semester studying in Paris and Hong Kong. These travels have been an inexhaustible source of inspiration and perspective. Chicago is her home now, but living and learning in different places has shaped her appreciation for cities, history, and design.

Dori has spent the last ten years working and gaining architectural and interior design experience at large firms that focus on the hospitality and restaurant markets.

She listens carefully to her clients, working from a place of collaboration and team spirit. She strives to achieve environments that her clients will be in love with and that will reflect them.

In her spare time she loves chasing her two young sons in her neighborhood park and discovering new restaurants with her husband.

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

Our goal is to make home remodeling approachable. We will focus on providing planning services for home owners, contractors, and real estate professionals, whether selling, buying or updating. Unlike in a big box kitchen or bath showroom, we will personally try to keep the whole house and lifestyle in mind.
