"Robin provided leadership and collaborative team work, creating solutions that not only met our budget and schedule, but also brought innovative design and educational sustainable elements to the work. She has a great attitude, was definitely a calming influence, and took the time to listen to what we were saying and develop thoughtful and meaningful responses to any questions or concerns we had."

- Curt Saindon, Assistant Superintendent for Finance and Operations, Frankfort School District # 157-C.


"Robin has a unique and wonderful gift of conceptualizing the possibilities of spaces and then guiding her clients, through a collaborative process, as they choose the elements to fit that desired outcome. From the initial architectural drawings right through to the selection of fabrics for furniture, Robin inspired us to consider new approaches or alternative options that in the end were exactly the correct avenues to success. In addition to these many talents, Robin's warm personality, intelligence and sincerity resulted in our total confidence and trust in her work. I, on behalf of the library staff and the Library Board of Trustees, whole-heartedly add my thanks and praises to her list of satisfied clients."

-Lori Craft, Library Director, Clarendon Hills Public Library.


"Robin Randall helped us in the planning and design of our new Elementary Building for our long-standing Montessori school, which serves as a Lab School for a Montessori Teacher Certification Program. She began by listening to our vision and learning about our alternative educational approach. Next she and her team led each constituency from our community - children, parents and teachers - through an incredible dreaming and creating process to enumerate the various "must have" and "would love to have" features of our new school building. Finally, Robin created a design that not only provided almost everything from our dreamed lists, but also held true to our educational philosophy and our goals of creating an environmentally friendly building space that matched our other buildings in look and aesthetic but raised the bar significantly. We loved the experience and have no hesitation to strongly recommend Robin's services to other educational and public organizations!"

- Anna Perry, Ed.M. Executive Director, Seton Montessori Institute and Schools.


"Throughout the duration of planning, design and construction, Robin was sensitive to the needs and challenges of our nonprofit organization, as well as to the complexities of operating a facility in a low-income neighborhood. Many of our building's features, including our green roof, respect the environment and the sustainability of our planet. Creativity is Robin's forte"

- Dr. Susan Work, President, Holy Family Ministries.
