Our History

Graham & Hyde’s legacy is deeply rooted in the Central Illinois community. Graham & Hyde was founded in 1968 by Jim Graham, Springfield native who amassed more than 50 years in the architecture industry before his passing in 2019. Jim infused a passion for architecture — particularly design, artwork, stained glass and liturgical design — into the firm, which continues today.

Our Approach

Graham & Hyde serves Central Illinois with appealing design for education, faith-based and healthcare spaces. Our team has designed numerous schools, medical facilities, places of worship and other public/private spaces — with a constant focus on the well-being and futures of the people we serve.

Our firm brings a commitment to each project: excellence in designing spaces that inspire and enhance our local communities. As a team, we demonstrate integrity within each project, vision in creating and executing intentional design, and incorporation of sustainable practices.

Graham & Hyde stands on enduring, quality architecture. Through collaborative planning strategies and integrated design, we transform ideas into innovative, highly functional spaces that support the success of our communities.
