Dwelling Spaces + Places Goes Brick + Mortar
By Kelley Elwood

After nearly two years of running a business that provides “move management and design” out of her home, Drina Nikola, founder of Dwelling Spaces + Places, relocated to a storefront at 2930 Central St., in March and celebrated the transition with a ribbon cutting on June 29.

Dwelling Spaces + Places provides design, downsizing, and moving services for Chicagoland’s boomer-and-beyond set. The company guides retirees, seniors, and families through the time-consuming process of transitioning to a new lifestyle or home environment.

Ms. Nikola has more than three decades of experience in healthcare design and project management. “In my work, I saw firsthand a demand for aging in place and the benefits. I am passionate about sharing my knowledge with those who struggle to make lifestyle transitions.”

Ms. Nikola is a city of Evanston Community Business Academy graduate and recipient of Women’s Council of Realtors North Shore Chapter's 2016 Entrepreneur of the year award. She serves on the housing committee for The Age Friendly Evanston! task force and was instrumental in co-writing Evanston’s LEED Ordinance for construction.
