Welcome To RISE Architecture
Creating Extraordinary Spaces
Responsibility, Integrity, Service, and Excellence
Your trusted partner in residential and specialty commercial design and architecture

Ciao, and thanks for stopping in.

About mid-way through my career, I was asked to describe my company in one sentence. What came next were four words – Responsibility, Integrity, Service, and Excellence. And right there RISE Architecture was born. While these words are fairly overused in most people’s businesses and industries, the intensity in which I strive to execute each of these four fundamentals into every project is what drives me and my company.

I’m Joseph Putignano, and I’ve spent my entire life in the heartland of Chicago, raised in a Catholic Italian family and immersed in the bellissimo (very beautiful) Italian culture, starting with my very first meal. This early intro into Italian culture forced me down a rabbit hole of wonder, learning about Italy’s different regions, their housing needs, and the manner in which each regional language influences its people and their surrounding architecture.

What We Do

Residential Build & Design

Taking a space and giving it a new face is something RISE thrives on. We have experience combining two and three spaces into one, gutting an entire floor and remaking it, and redesigning rooms for modern flair.

Commercial Build & Design

From high rises to single family homes, residential design, build, and construction management is our bread and butter. Our favorite projects are ones where we start from the ground up.
