The firm focuses on planning, architecture, and interior design services. River Architects, Inc. has purposely remained an architectural firm rather than a mix of architecture and engineering. Our reasoning is each project is unique, requiring different engineering skills. We believe we best meet your needs by having the freedom to select an engineer whose knowledge and experience match your project requirements.
