culture & people

Founded in 2006, RoehrSchmitt Architecture is dedicated to gathering the best talent, cutting-edge technology, and a flexible approach to project delivery to produce high quality design with speed, quality, and value. Principals Chris Schmitt and Michael Roehr have collaborated in one form or another for over twenty years, and throughout their careers have participated in the design and construction of over two million square feet of built work, much of which has included a civic and public component. As design leaders they have extensive knowledge of best practices and experience creating effective design teams and projects that not only meet fast track schedules and challenging budgets, but do so without compromising design integrity. RoehrSchmitt Architecture was founded on a belief that design is fundamentally an optimistic stance toward the world, and work each day to find that sweet spot between value and quality are optimized. The firm is committed to the idea that there should be no conflict between doing what’s best for our clients and what’s best for our communities and the world.

Our team consists of experienced, talented architects and designers skilled at wrangling the myriad competing interests, requirements, and expectations with which every project begins through the crucible of a rigorous proven process to arrive at a well-resolved project that meets or exceeds our clients' needs.
