Fred Schmidt

FIIDA, LEED AP
Principal, Corporate Interiors, Chicago

Fred entered college as a pre-med student, but soon felt a stronger connection to a different calling.

Visiting a college friend’s neighbor, he entered a house unlike any he had ever seen, filled with modern furniture and art. He was impressed with the home, so he started asking questions and learned the owners were architects. Shortly thereafter – having switched schools and transferred majors – he poured himself into the architecture program to hone his design and problem-solving skills. Later, he developed his analytical skills in a graduate program in Environment-Behavior Research.

Fred has developed an unique design philosophy that revolves around program definition and careful problem resolution. This has been shaped by his early training in research and environmental design.  Fred’s operating philosophy is that each project is a journey to be savored and enjoyed by the design team and the client.
