Legat Architects adds designer Blye to staff

CRYSTAL LAKE – Legat Architects has added designer Steve Blye to its professional staff. Blye will serve a dual role: Associate director of health care, and senior design director.

“Steve’s greatest assets are his ability to listen to clients, challenge their expectations and develop responsive environments," said Legat Architects’ President/CEO Patrick Brosnan. "His style and approach are a natural fit for our design-focused teams. Steve brings amazing skill as a listener and graphic problem solver.”

Blye’s national design experience includes many successful projects. Among regional health-care providers he has served are Adventist Health System, Advocate Health Care, Central DuPage Hospital, Edward Hospital, Silver Cross Hospital, Loyola University Health System and Northwestern Memorial Hospital. This experience adds depth to Legat Architects’ legacy of responsive healthcare environments.
 
His portfolio also includes domestic and international mixed-use developments, hotels, commercial and retail facilities. Blye's landmark designs in downtown Chicago include the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers and Prentice Women’s Hospital.

A licensed architect and LEED Accredited Professional, Steve holds a master of architecture from the University of Illinois.
 
When he’s not at the office, Steve enjoys painting, particularly in watercolor. He even illustrated "The Dangerous Pet," a children’s book about financial responsibility.
