A unique firm keeping it real.

 

RoehrSchmitt Architecture was founded on the belief that at its core, good design requires taking a fundamentally optimistic view of the world, and we're committed to the idea that there should be no conflict between doing what’s best for our clients and our communities. We come to work each day to find that sweet spot where the interplay of quality and value is balance and optimized, where work and play are virtually indistinguishable.

Michael Roehr, AIA

Michael is the design lead, working to establish a strong conceptual foundation upon which the team can develop projects with clarity and purpose. He excels at fostering constuctive dialogue among all project stakeholders.

He came to architecture by way of philosophy, seeking a vocation which allowed him to take conceptual thinking beyond theory and into constructive engagement with the world. He practices design as a collaborative exercise—a rich conversation—leveraging everyone’s shared understanding of the work at hand. When he's not making architecture he's either cooking something fantastic or making music.
