Design excellence and personalized service to benefit our clients and communities. These are the foundational tenets of RLC Architects. Founding principals Bruce Retzsch, Luis Lanao and Juan Caycedo have built the firm on a solid philosophic and experiential base. We believe that the quantity of the relationships is as important as the quality of the projects, and, as a result more than 90% of our commissions have come from previous clients and referrals.
The firm specializes in planning, design and delivery solutions for buildings and communities. We offer a diverse team with significant experience in office, industrial, retail, residential, mixed-use, education and interior architecture. RLC has received numerous awards for design excellence from the American Institute of Architects, as well as various industry associations. Our success has come in large measure from transcending our clients’ functional and economic goals, while adhering to limited budgets and compressed schedules, to create unique architectural expressions.
Another important component of the firm is sustainability. When it comes to South Florida, we are leaders in “green design.” Seven of our recently completed projects have attained LEED certification and over fifty percent of our professional staff has their LEED accreditation's.
We welcome the opportunity to explore your needs and show you how RLC’s approach to design and service will exceed your expectations. When you are looking for a building that makes a statement both in form and function, make an “Investment in Design.” Invest in RLC Architects.
