A lovely young couple approached NCH Design about upgrading their master bathroom in their new Park Hill home. While charming, the existing bathroom was tiny, with room for only a single vanity and shower. However, adjascent to the bathroom was a large deck that was under utilized and the perfect additional square footage for a proper master bathroom retreat. With the help of David Budrow Architects, we expanded the bathroom and added a shower with dual heads and luxurious soaking tub where the existing deck used to be. Custom built-ins replaced the existing toilet, shower and linen closet.

What started as a part-time hobby for Noelle has now grown into a thriving family business. Noelle's daughter, Nicole Stewart, joined NCH back in 2012 as junior partner. And now Noelle's sister, Soraya Gallego, joins NCH Design as lead commercial designer and partner.
Soraya has an extensive and impressive background in design. With 30+ years of experience, she founded Soraya Planning & Design in 1989 and was most recently the Director of Interior Design at Grec Architects in Chicago, IL. Soraya excels at project management and space planning and is a National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) certificate holder as well as a Professional Member of the International Interior Design Association. She has been responsible for an array of design projects including commercial, hospitality, medical, office, media entertainment, and most recently marine cruise liner projects in major harbor cities such as Chicago, Boston, and New York. Some of her projects include work on the Fairmont Hotel in Chicago, the Stadium Club at US Cellular Field in Chicago, and the Sky Deck Experience at Willis Tower in Chicago, just to name a few.
We are thrilled to have such a talent join NCH Design. Soraya has been instrumental to the planning and design of the new Dancing Bear Aspen Mountainside project in Aspen. We are working on adding a portfolio of commercial projects to our website, but in the meantime click here to see Soraya's past work.
