Who We Are

RdlR Architects, Inc. is a design oriented firm committed to creative, innovative problem solving. Established in 1982, the Firm has been involved in designing a broad spectrum of education, commercial, municipal, planning, residential, renovation, state, & federal projects. The Firm operated as a sole proprietorship until 1986 when it was incorporated and became known as Rey de la Reza AIA* Architects, named for the founding principal of the Firm.


What We Do

RdlR has been involved in a multitude of projects and project types. Our services range from advanced planning (including assistance with scope preparations, programming and site selections) to post occupancy evaluations and LEED documentation. Additional services include master planning, urban design, interior design, technical and feasibilities studies, building analysis and evaluations, design, construction administration, and coordination for move management.

We believe that the best solutions come from a collaborative, interactive process led by designers that involves all stakeholders, design team members, and specialty consultants.  Our design is rooted in the belief that openness and provocative exchange of ideas result in better products.  We understand that successful projects engage clients, end users, contractors, construction managers, Owner’s specialty consultants, and other third parties early in the design process. We recognize that the experience these professionals bring to a project is complementary to the design team.
