Company Profile

Company Overview
(r)evolution architecture is a full service architectural and interior design practice that opened its doors in 2012. We leverage over 25 years of award-winning expertise delivering customized, LEED certified / benchmarked solutions if desired, by adhering to a methodical and collaborative design process. We leverage a mix of traditional tools with advanced technology, and partner with a team of experts in their fields, such as Engineers to develop high performing solutions with a focus on sustainability.

As our family business, our work and those with whom we work with mean the world to us. Therefore, the experience throughout the project is as important to us as the custom designed end solution. We aspire for our work to provoke thought, emotion, curiosity and introspection. Beyond the work, we are advocates for our community and engage in diverse philanthropic efforts throughout the region.

"Working with (r)ev o lu t io n architecture has been a real pleasure for our Library Building Committee and City Leaders over the past several years. Through strategic and creative planning, Chris and his team helped turn a 40 year old dream to construct a new library for the City of Viroqua into a reality. Working with the general public, elected officials, our Library Board and Construction Committees took great patience, vision, and professionalism. We are proud to say, (r)ev o lu t io n architecture has designed a library facility for our community that is sustainable, state of the art, and a model for other communities."
