Michael G. Norpell, a landscape architect and interior designer by training, has over 15 years experience designing total living environments, from the exterior to the interior. Since creating his own design/build firm in 2000, “Norpie” has been creating spaces that enhance the personality of his clients while being true to the original design aesthetic of the structure and creatively wedging great design into budgets of any size.
He balances big picture perspective with attention to detail, executing a vision from the overall experience and drilling it down to the details of cabinet pulls or molding. He’s been highlighted in Chicago Social Interiors.
Norpie has experience designing large public and corporate projects. He was part of the team that created the A.S.L.A. award-winning LG Chemical Resource Building Roof Top Garden and Courtyard in Daeduk, Korea. He was the principal architect for Grand Rapids Public Schools’ playground redesign to meet new ADA and safety guidelines. Along Western Michigan’s Lake Michigan shore, you can find streetscapes, waterfront parks and boat launches all having Norpie’s touch.
Relocating to Chicago’s Northshore, Norpie has transformed his focus to residential. Wall to Wall is an all-encompassing interior, landscape and lifestyle residential design/build firm specializing in the rebuilding, remodeling and landscaping of mid-century homes.
